Cardiac power is a novel hemodynamic measure. By incorporating both flow and pressure domains, it represents the cardiac pumping ability. In the present study, cardiac power is the strongest hemodynamic correlate of outcome for patients in cardiogenic shock. Increasing age and female gender are independently associated with lower cardiac power.
