Course Overview

The Scripps Cardiogenic Shock and Resuscitation Symposium is a comprehensive course designed for those who care for patients with cardiogenic shock including cardiologists (interventional and advanced heart failure specialists), cardiothoracic surgeons, critical care and emergency department physicians, and advanced practice clinicians. The multidisciplinary faculty will discuss various treatment options for cardiogenic shock as well as the benefits of developing a dedicated shock care team. Workshops will offer participants a chance to get hands-on experience with mechanical circulatory support devices (short-term and long-term durable support) as well as bedside ultrasound. The goal of this symposium is to share knowledge and best practices among providers to help improve outcomes in this high mortality disorder.
