Enhanced External Counter-pulsation Therapy (EECP)
Enhanced external counter-pulsation (EECP) therapy is helpful for some people who have Angina. Angina is chest pain or discomfort that occurs if an area of your heart muscle doesn't get enough oxygen-rich blood.
EECP therapy improves the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle and helps relieve angina. You typically get 35, 1-hour treatments over 7 weeks. Large cuffs, similar to blood pressure cuffs, are put on the legs. The cuffs are inflated and deflated in sync with your heartbeat.
