The prognosis of cardiac insufficiency depends primarily on the underlying disease. But it also has to be considered that in cardiac insufficient patients, often a very unstable equilibrium of the fluid balance exists, and that the prognosis is also considerably influenced by deviations of this equilibrium. The more the myocardium is limited by the underlying disease the smaller the equilibrium deviations that can lead to cardiogenic shock.
