Cardiogenic Shock Symposium

Registry evidence suggests that timing of hemodynamic support significantly improves outcomes in patients who present with AMI or AMICGS.  There remains a focus on D2B metrics for these patients, but  studies show that the quality metrics should be changed to Door to Support. Data also demonstrates that developing and following CGS algorithms that specify timing of support also improves outcomes. Widespread adoption of these algorithms may improve survival rates for those in CGS.

This 1/2-day program will focus on presentations, discussions and case reviews that incorporate the following:
- Identifying the patient population that could benefit from early initiation hemodynamic support
- Developing algorithms that incorporate timing, escalation and weaning of hemodynamic support for AMICGS patients
- Best practices for a Heart Team approach

Who should attend these courses?

i. Physicians who currently treat AMICGS patients.
ii. Physicians who would like to refine their treatment strategies for treating these patients and want develop their own algorithms
iii.  Physicians that understand the value of Hemodynamic support and would like to better identify those patients who would benefit from it.

Application & Eligibility

Registration at the Hartzler Interventional Cardiology Symposium is a prerequisite to applying for and attending the "Rationalizing the Timing of Hemodynamic Support in Cardiogenic Shock Symposium". 

Applicants must be advanced operators who use hemodynamic support.

A limited number of educational scholarships are available for applicants that are accepted to attend the Cardiogenic Shock Symposium.  Those applicants will receive a reimbursement scholarship to cover the cost of flight expenses (up to US$750) and accommodation (to the value of Run of House room and tax only) for the nights of Saturday 15 July and Sunday 16 July.   Self-funded applicants can still be accepted to attend once these scholarships have been utilised. 

Reimbursement will be provided upon completion of the course and once travel receipts have been submitted appropriately.
