  Shock   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
In hypovolemic shock, preload is decreased, afterload is increased, and the myocardial contractility remains normal.
In early septic shock, the preload and afterload are decreased, and the myocardial contractility is increased.
In late septic shock, the preload and afterload are increased and the myocardial contractility is decreased.

 Cardiogenic Shock - Health Centers
Cardiogenic shock is a disease state where the heart is damaged enough that it is unable to supply sufficient blood to the body.
Cardiogenic shock can be caused by disorders of the heart muscle, the valves, or the heart's electrical conduction system.
To diagnose cardiogenic shock, a catheter (tube) may be placed in the pulmonary artery.

 Cardiogenic Shock, Annals 6 Jul 99
Cardiogenic shock is diagnosed after documentation of myocardial dysfunction and exclusion or correction of such factors as hypovolemia, hypoxia, and acidosis.
Cardiogenic shock can also be caused by mechanical complications—such as acute mitral regurgitation, rupture of the interventricular septum, or rupture of the free wall—or by large right ventricular infarctions.
Cardiogenic shock is diagnosed after documentation of myocardial dysfunction and exclusion of alternative causes of hypotension, such as hypovolemia, hemorrhage, sepsis, pulmonary embolism, tamponade, aortic dissection, and preexisting valvular disease.

Shock is a condition in which the blood pressure is very low and the body doesn't get all the blood it needs.
Shock can be caused by a rapid loss of a lot of blood, by allergic reactions, or because the heart is not pumping well.
If shock is caused by a heart attack, the first treatment is to try to restore blood flow to the damaged part of the heart muscle.

 Shock
Shock is a failure of the circulatory system and is a life-threatening medical emergency.
Shock can be caused by problems with the heart itself (cardiogenic shock), conditions that block blood flow to or from the heart (extracardiac obstructive shock), severe loss of fluids (hypovolemic shock), or abnormal flow of fluids into the tissues, despite normal or increased heart function (distributive shock).
Depending on the cause of shock, surgery may be required to repair heart valves or rupture of a ventricle, artificially augment blood flow from the heart, or remove an embolism.

Cardiogenic shock is generally associated with the loss of more than 40% of the left ventricular myocardium, although in patients with previously compromised left ventricular function, even a small infarction may precipitate shock.
Cardiogenic shock characterized by primary myocardial dysfunction causes the heart to be unable to maintain adequate cardiac output.
Cardiogenic shock may be prevented with early revascularization in patients with MI and with required intervention in patients with structural heart disease.
