Cardiogenic Shock6

Cardiogenic shock is a life threatening situation that occurs when the heart’s inability to function causes organs in the body to begin to fail. This may happen as a result of a sudden cardiac event such as a heart attack. 

When cardiogenic shock occurs, blood pressure becomes very low, signifying the heart’s inability to adequately pump blood in order to provide much-needed oxygen to vital organs.
