WHAT IS EECP?

 

Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) is performed as a non-invasive

 treatment to lower the number and intensity of angina episodes. Treatment

 is administered through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs that are

applied around the lower legs, upper legs and buttocks. These cuffs

 continuously inflate and deflate between the resting period of the

heartbeat and increase blood returned to the heart.

 

The basic principle of EECP treatment involves increasing the amount of

 blood returning to the heart, which helps supply more oxygen to its

starved areas. With more oxygen available, the heart can function much

 more efficiently and therefore reduce chest pain.
