EECP Treatment: A Non-surgical Treatment for Angina and Heart diseases.


Heart conditions like angina can be treated non-invasively, painlessly, and outside of the hospital with EECP (Enhanced External Counter Pulsation). It has been suggested as an alternative to conventional treatments like angioplasty and bypass surgery for coronary artery disease (CAD) because it is safe and non-invasive.

Up to 35 hours of EECP treatment may be administered, one hour per day. The patient is requested to take a seat comfortably while receiving therapy, and then his or her legs, thighs, and buttocks are wrapped in thick cuffs. Between each heartbeat, these cuffs expand and deflate at predetermined regular intervals. The cuffs are inflated when the heart is at rest (when it receives its oxygen supply) and deflate when rest ends, ideally before the subsequent beating. The timing of the cuffs is controlled and monitored by an electrocardiogram. A sensor is fastened to the tip of the patient's finger, and it measures the amount of oxygen in the blood as well as the pressure caused by the inflations and deflations of the cuff.

Benefits of EECP Treatment

Arterial Wall Dilation and Improved Blood Circulation:

EECP causes the arteries to dilate, which improves blood flow and lowers pressure on the blood vessels. The EECP workout tones the heart muscles as well as the blood vessels.Patients who completed the full 35 hours sittings of treatment have reported considerable improvements in their health, including decreased angina and dyspnea. Nitric oxide production rises as a result of enhanced endothelial function, indicating improved vascular health. It eases arterial stiffness, encourages the growth of new arteries, and widens the blood vessels already in place.

Safe and Effective:

Because EECP is a non-invasive procedure, hospitalisation is not required. This lowers the cost of hospitalisation as well as the length of recovery time and discomfort from stitches and convalescence. EECP can be performed as an outpatient procedure, and following the whole course of treatment, the issue is frequently resolved. Some people need assistance with the basic pumping activity because their cardiac muscles are weak. In these situations, EECP aids in enhancing and re-establishing circulation.

It has been discovered that EECP treatment can lessen chest pain and shortness of breath when combined with lifestyle adjustments and nutritional supplements. After finishing EECP treatment, most patients stop using all heart-related medications and therapies.

The cost of an EECP treatment is just a fraction of a Bypass surgery.
