Abstract

Cardiac instability can be brought about by a number of hemodynamic dysfunctions such as deficits in myocardial ventricular or atrial contractility, Myocardial Infarction (MI), electricalconduction disturbances, myocardial valvular problems, structural changes in the pericardium, coronary arterial flow problems or combinations of these factors. Cardiogenic Shock (CS) is characteristically defined as a cardiac disorder which results in clinical, biochemical and molecular cell manifestations in inadequate tissue and cellular perfusion. Clinically, the patient presents with persistent hypotension which is unresponsive to volume replacement in conjunction with endorgan hypoperfusion requiring intervention with pharmacological/mechanical support. The end result of this hypoperfusion is a deficit in coronary microcirculatory blood flow and nutrition to the tissues and cells of the ventricles and atria.
