A Pan-Canadian Survey of Cardiogenic Shock Management: A Report from the Canadian Cardiovascular Research Collaboratory (C3) Cardiogenic Shock Working Group

Published:August 05, 2022DOI:
      Supported by a Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada grant, the Canadian Cardiovascular Research Collaboratory cardiogenic shock working group conducted a nation-wide survey on cardiogenic shock management and processes-of-care. Survey content included hospital characteristics, case volumes, physician specialities managing cardiogenic shock, availability of multi-disciplinary shock teams and shock protocols, use of mechanical circulatory support and perceived challenges to care. We identified substantial variation in practice patterns across Canadian hospitals. The findings may inform future directions for systems of regional care and focus for research questions.
