In the setting of acute myocardial infarction, the timely recognition and treatment of cardiogenic shock are essential in reducing the incidence of death. Patients with cardiogenic shock should be treated aggressively with a combination of pharmacologic agents and mechanical support devices to achieve stabilization. Once stabilization has been achieved, the ultimate goal should be the restoration of flow in the infarct-related artery. This is best achieved with angioplasty or bypass surgery. In those centers not equipped for these procedures, thrombolysis should be performed, and the patient should then be transferred to a higher-level facility.
