Understanding Angina

Angina results when your heart muscle is not receiving an adequate supply of blood due to a heavy workload. A healthy heart receives nourishment through the coronary arteries. When these vessels are narrowed or blocked they fail to supply am adequate amount of oxygen to the heart.

Detours around blocked arteries

Our body can increase the amount of blood flowing to the heart muscle by opening up tiny arteries of our nearby healthy vessels. This makes it possible for blood to flow around blocked or narrowed arteries.

The development of collateral circulation may be a life-saving factor. However, the development of collateral circulation is a slow and gradual process.  Some people have the ability to revive these tiny arteries at a fast enough rate to relieve angina while others people do not.

Learning about EECP treatment

EECP treatment has been found to stimulate the formation of these tiny arteries to create a natural blood flow through and  around the blocked arteries.

“Enhanced” refers to the state-of-the-art treatment system used in EECP treatment centers today.
