Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) can be defined as a clinical-pathological disorder in which a primary insult in the kidney or heart initiates a series of functional and morphological secondary dysfunctions with responses in the other organs. A 63-year-old male patient with heart failure secondary to ischemic heart disease presented decompensation associated with hyperkalemia, evolving cardiogenic shock and acute kidney injury (AKI). In this case, an early use of inotropic medications to correct the low-output syndrome, associated with the identification of the AKI, was the differential that contributed to the positive outcome of the case.
