Cardiogenic shock (CS) represents an advanced state of morbidity along the pathophysiologic pathway of end-organ hypoperfusion caused by reduced cardiac output and blood pressure. Acute coronary syndromes remain the most common cause of CS. The spectrum of hypoperfusion states caused by low cardiac output ranges from pre-CS to refractory CS and can be characterized by an array of hemodynamic parameters. This review provides the foundation for a hemodynamic understanding of CS including the use of hemodynamic monitoring for diagnosis and treatment, the cardiac and vascular determinants of CS, and a hemodynamic approach to risk stratification and management of CS.
