Hear from SCAI SHOCK 2020 Program Chairs Srihari S. Naidu MD, FSCAI; William W. O'Neill, MD, MSCAI; Alexander G. Truesdell, MD, FSCAI; and Perwaiz M. Meraj, MD about what makes this year's virtual experience so unique.




World-renowned speakers

SCAI SHOCK: Cardiogenic Shock Teams and Networks aims to provide a comprehensive review of the definition, evaluation, and management of cardiogenic shock across the spectrum of care, including different etiologies of shock and various presentation settings from the emergency room to cath lab or CCU, and from the community hospital to the large academic medical center. An overview of shock initiatives and clinical trials, the spectrum of shock, and systems of care will be provided. 

The course includes case-based presentations, novel treatment algorithms, the growing basic and clinical science, and active audience participation, all brought to attendees by a world-class faculty. There will also be a focused mini-symposia on hot topics. Management of shock is a rapidly evolving area of high interest to interventional cardiologists and the rest of the shock team, including emergency medicine, critical care, pulmonary, heart failure and surgical colleagues, not only for its ongoing high mortality and relationship to STEMI, but also for the novel technology, public reporting, and physician scorecard aspects.

Member Highlight

On behalf of co-chairs Drs. Bill O’Neill, Alex Truesdell, and Perwaiz Meraj, we are excited to bring you the third installment of SCAI SHOCK, specifically catered to the virtual experience with more functionality and interaction between attendees and faculty, as we evolve our virtual platforms. This year we expand into using the SCAI SHOCK definition in clinical practice, understanding the experience of hospitals of all shapes and sizes, including those stretched for resources, and engage participants through active case discussions. The sessions are kept short, to maximize the transfer of knowledge, with room built in for more panel discussions where we really learn how to treat these patients. We hope you will join us for what we know will be an amazing experience!
