Typical symptoms of cardiogenic shock may include: rapid breathing and a suddenly fast pulse, confusion or lack of alertness, loss of consciousness, sweating, pale skin, cold hands/feet and decreased urine output. Because a heart attack often occurs before cardiogenic shock, symptoms may also include:

  • angina-type chest pain (heavy uncomfortable pressure, fullness or squeezing pain)
  • mild or severe pain in the arms, shoulders, back, neck or jaw
  • vague discomfort or indigestion
  • difficulty breathing
  • anxiety
  • cold sweat
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • weakness or fatigue
  • anxiety

IMPORTANT: Call 911 for help right away if you or someone else is having these symptoms of a heart attack or shock.
