In brief: See below:

Although heart attacks (when 1 or more of the coronary arteries become blocked) are the most common cause, cardiogenic shock can also be due to other conditions, such as inflammation of the heart muscle (myocarditis) or infection of the heart valves (endocarditis).
Other causes include drug overdoses or poisoning with subtances that can affect a heart's pumping ability.
