Journal of Shock and Hemodynamics (JoSH) publishes original research manuscripts, review articles, and case reports related to all aspects of shock including cardiogenic, septic, neurogenic, and vasodilatory circulatory collapse. Additionally, we seek papers with an emphasis on invasive and non-invasive hemodynamic assessments that span the entire field of cardiovascular medicine. JoSH is an open-access publication that is the official Journal of the Annual Houston Shock Symposium.
