Asset Caption
The incidence of cardiogenic shock is increasing. In the hopes of improving outcomes, clinicians are increasingly turning to percutaneous left and right mechanical circulatory support devices. The widespread availability of these devices and a multidisciplinary approach that combines expertise from cardiologists, heart failure specialists, cardiac surgeons, and critical care specialists may help pair the right patient with the right device at the right time. Echocardiography is essential in all advanced hemodynamic support stages in the adult and pediatric ICU. This session will demonstrate the most relevant echocardiographic features in the initial assessment, continuous monitoring, and recognition of complications that the critical care team can face at any time with commercially available devices— venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, intra-aortic balloon pump counterpulsation, various heart pump system models, and percutaneous left ventricular devices in adult and pediatric patients with shock. Experts in the field will provide the most practical didactics for immediate clinical practice application.
