Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Cardiac resuscitation involves 2 simultaneous actions: (1) interventions to promote perfusion; and (2) correction of the underlying etiology.
  • Cardiac arrest is a severe form of cardiogenic shock (pulse cannot be palpated). Cardiac resuscitation is the treatment of cardiogenic shock.
  • Presenting complaints of a patient in cardiogenic shock include dyspnea, chest pain, lower extremity edema, and altered mental status.21
  • Congestive heart failure that progresses to cardiogenic shock results in cool extremities, delayed capillary refill, narrow pulse pressure (PP), and altered mental status.
