Cardiogenic shock is a condition of diminished cardiac output that severely impairs cardiac perfusion.
The ductus arteriosus is a fetal blood vessel that connects the pulmonary artery to the descending aorta. In patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), the lumen of the ductus remains open after birth.
Decreased Cardiac Output occurs when there is insufficient blood pumped (stroke volume X heart rate) by the heart to meet the metabolic demands of the body.
Myocardial infarction (MI), is used synonymously with coronary occlusion and heart attack, yet MI is the most preferred term as myocardial ischemia causes acute coronary syndrome (ACS) that can result in myocardial death.
Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure, is recognized as a clinical syndrome characterized by signs and symptoms of fluid overload or of inadequate tissue perfusion.
