The Houston Shock Symposium
The Houston Shock Symposium is the first dedicated cardiogenic shock symposium that encompasses cardiac physiologists, cardiologists, interventionalists, advanced heart failure cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and engineers. It is our aim to have world renowned experts in this field to share and advance knowledge, expertise, and vision to save lives and reduce shock’s unacceptable high mortality rate. A panel of national and international faculty are invited to speak on or discuss issues surrounding cardiogenic shock in a two day symposium. The targeted audience are general cardiologists, advanced heart failure cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, intensivists, fellows in training, and medical staff interested in the physiology, diagnosis, and management of cardiogenic shock.
