Risk factorsBy Mayo Clinic staff
Some people who have a heart attack have a greater risk of developing cardiogenic shock than others have. Factors that increase your risk of cardiogenic shock include:
- Being age 65 or older
- Having a history of heart failure or previous heart attack
- Having blockages (coronary artery disease) in several of your heart's main arteries
