Cardiogenic Shock | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Cardiogenic shock is generally diagnosed from your medical history and physical examination. Figuring out the underlying cause is very important, and will require further testing. For example, blood tests and a heart tracing, called an ECG, may be done if a heart attack is suspected. Plain or special X-ray tests are also frequently done.
