Acknowledgment of Commercial Support
This activity is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Getinge. No in-kind commercial support was received.
Learning Objectives
At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:
  • Discuss the distinct features of shock due to acute myocardial infarction (MI) versus advanced heart failure.
  • Describe the rationale for device selection in advanced heart failure.
  • Evaluate data supporting mechanical circulatory support (MCS) use in acute decompensated heart failure.
  • Review shock algorithms tailored to advanced heart failure.
Accredited Continuing Education Information

Accreditation Statement
The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) is accredited by the
Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

​Credit Designation
SCAI designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1.0 medical knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
