This study attempts to quantitate post-infarction cardiogenic shock IABP dependence in instances of massive myocardial infarction with the use of hemodynamic indices plotted over time-course trajectories. Mortality is predicted when age and hemodynamic performance are also considered. It appears that post-infarction IABP dependence can be quantitated and that such information can be useful in considering diagnostic and therapeutic alternatives during the course of IABP support and cardiogenic shock. The analysis suggests that such IABP-dependent patients could be considered for therapeutic alternatives. They do not expire during the first 50 hours of IABP support and neither improve nor deteriorate during the second 50 hours of support. They remain in Class B without the occurrence of life-threatening ventricular dysrhythmias for a sufficient time for cardiac catheterization to determine the appropriateness of corrective procedures.
