Medical therapeutic knowledge advances by continual action and reaction between retrospective and prospective evaluation on the one hand and clinical real-life observation and assessment on the other. In this regard, our goal is to articulate and demystify certain myths and misconceptions that impede the optimal management of patients with circulatory failure related to acute cardiac diseases. More specifically, we outline 5 statements that represent misconceptions about cardiogenic shock management that we have frequently faced throughout years of caring for critically ill patients. Moreover, for each statement, we suggest concise, corrective responses.
