A Non-Invasive Outpatient Therapy
EECP Treatment patients lie down on a padded table in a treatment room. Then three electrodes are applied to the skin and connected to an ECG machine. The ECG displays the heart’s rhythm during EECP treatment and monitors blood pressure.
A set of cuffs is wrapped around the legs and attached to air hoses that gently but firmly inflate and deflate the cuffs to increase blood flow to your heart. EECP Treatment Patients experience a sensation of pressure moving upward from calves to thighs to buttocks followed by the rapid release of pressure. Inflation and deflation are electronically synchronized with the heart beat and blood pressure using the ECG. This lowers resistance in the blood vessels in the legs so that blood may be pumped more easily from your heart.
