Frequently Asked Questions
Answer :- EECP is the non-invasive cardiac treatment that is FDA approved, any patient who does not wish to go for cardiac procedures like Angioplasty or bypass surgery can take benefits from this treatment. Any patient having angina pain, chest pain, and most important low EF (low heart pumping issue ) heart failure can have this painless treatment at a reasonable cost. It can help to improve the quality of lifestyle of patients.
Answer:- EECP treatment gently but firmly compresses the blood vessels in the lower limbs to increase blood flow to your heart. Each wave of pressure is electronically timed to the heartbeat so that the increased blood flow is delivered to your heart at the precise moment it is relaxing. It also helps those patients who are suffering from varicose vein and kidney issues.
Answer :- Generally, we recommend 35 sessions for those who do not wish to go for open heart surgery or angioplasty, but in some cases like low EF or heart failure can take 55 sessions every year. Moreover, any person who has a genetic cardiac issue or varicose vein issue, or kidney issue can take this therapy. This will give the result.
