Complications could include:
Cardiogenic shock occurs when the heart has been damaged to the point where it's unable to supply enough blood to the organs of the body.
Pulmonary edema is a condition in which the lungs fill with fluid. When this occurs, the body struggles to get enough oxygen, often resulting in breathlessness, coughing, excessive sweating, and bluish skin or lips.
Cyanosis refers to a bluish cast to the skin and mucous membranes, like inside the mouth or the lips. It's often caused by low oxygen levels.
