EECP is an abbreviation for Enhanced External Counter pulsation which is an entirely safe, non-invasive & non- pharmaceutical outpatient treatment for relieving and eliminating chest pain or shortness of breath. It is a painless treatment which carries no risk and has no major adverse side effects. EECP has been proven to be a safe therapy, as reported by IEPR (International EECP Patient Registry) in 2000. EECP is an advanced & enhanced way of delivering the counter pulsation treatment.

MEANING OF EECP

The meaning of EECP is:

E – “Enhanced” stands for the treatment advanced through clinical and technical advancement.

E – “External” stands for the treatment is entirely external and doesn’t need any invasive procedures.

C – “Counter” stands for the primary treatment principle is to counter the natural heart pumping function. When the heart contracts, the cuffs placed in your leg relax. The heart relaxes the cuffs contracts.

P – “Pulsation” stands for the rhythmic blood flow in the arteries during the treatment.

EECP THERAPY BENEFITS

Patients with blockages in the coronary arteries, Patients who had a Heart attack and patients who want alternative treatment to Bypass Surgery and Angioplasty can benefit from the treatment.  It can also offer great help for patients whom bypass surgery and angioplasty has failed, EECP is the only treatment option to restore the health of patients with poor heart health.

BENEFITS OF EECP IN HEART PATIENTS –

Our heart has millions of tiny blood vessels networked together. Advancing age, cardiac risk factors like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels, obesity, sedentary activity, and smoking are critical factors in slowing down the formation of natural blood vessels. EECP treatment triggers and accelerates this circulation by the presenting blood vessels and makes it permanent. EECP increases the blood flow to the heart muscles by gently and firmly pressing the blood vessels via the cuffs placed in the legs. More blood reaches the heart when it is relaxing. The increase in blood flow to the heart muscle eventually can restore the deficient blood supply. The treatment also helps to dilate the blood vessels helping the heart to pump with ease. It will save the heart energy. It increases the blood supply for the diseased heart. It also decreases the frequency & intensity of chest pain in the patient with angina.

BENEFITS OF EECP IN DIABETIC PATIENTS – EECP in patients with Type II diabetes mellitus has shown reduced levels of blood glucose & glycosylated hemoglobin. The treatment will help the patients to have excellent control over their blood glucose levels with ease. The procedure is also risk-free and can also be repeated when needed. So, EECP for diabetes control will be a new non-drug, natural strategy. Nitric oxide is a potent natural vessel wall protector against stress, inflammation, prevents clot formation, and helps the vessel to retain its flexibility or dilatory property.  Uncontrolled diabetes leads to impaired nitric oxide production by the vascular endothelium, which is basically the cells lining and providing cover to the inner part of vessels. EECP has shown an increase in level of nitric oxide by 51.9%. This increased level of nitric oxide will have protection against micro and macro vessel complication in diabetes patients. The insulin sensitivity index is improved by 21% after EECP sessions. It means post EECP treatment; patients only require less level of insulin to reduce the blood glucose level.

BENEFITS OF EECP FORPROPER FUNCTION OF KIDNEYS – The blood flow to the kidneys is improved up to 21% by EECP. This increase in blood flow can help kidney to filter your waste product in your blood more efficiently. Harmful hormones like endothelin and renin, which cause vasoconstriction of your blood vessels and increase your blood pressure, reduce by 75-80% during a course of EECP treatment. EECP increases the urine output & helps in eliminating excess of sodium & chloride from the body. In Diabetic and hypertension patients, where protein leakage in your urine is considered as an early sign of kidney disease, preventive EECP treatment will have significant benefits in preventing kidney failure. EECP therefore improves the blood flow in the kidneys & also improves the kidney filtration.

BENEFITS OF EECP IN STIMULATING EXERCISE EFFECTS – EECP will control the increase in blood pressure and heart rate during exercise; this can help you to achieve a higher workload without getting fatigued. This effect will be a blessing for people and patients with a compromised cardiovascular system to attain improved exercise capacity. Intense physical activity activates a number of physiological changes in our body like skeletal muscle contraction, raised body metabolic demand, accelerated blood flow across the vascular system, accelerated lymphatic flow, strong heart muscle contraindication to increase the cardiac output to meet the increasing demand, increase blood pressure and heart rate to assist the circulatory system, peripheral vasodilation & stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. It increases the duration of exercise of an individual.

BENEFITS OF EECP IN LOWERING DOWN THE BLOOD PRESSURE TO THE NORML RANGE – When the cardiac muscle pushes the blood into the large arteries, a pressure in the blood arise. EECP helps in improving the blood pressure by improving the blood flow in the reverse direction in the arteries when the heart relaxes; it tends the vessels to increase the flow of blood when the heart contracts & relaxes. It causes the reduction in the blood pressure naturally without drugs; this reduction in the blood pressure is called “EECP TRAINING EFFECT”.

INDICATIONS OF EECP

People with the following symptoms can go for EECP:

  • You have chest pain/shortness of breath.
  • Your medical treatments are not able to relieve your cardiac symptoms.
  • You have already had a cardiac surgery/Angioplasty and symptoms have returned.
  • Your physician has informed you that you can’t undergo Bypass Surgery/Angioplasty.
  • You are not willing to undergo invasive Bypass surgery/Angioplasty.
  • You have poor heart pumping function.

ADVANTAGES OF EECP OVER BYPASS SURGERY & ANGIOPLASTY

The main objective of EECP is to avoid undergoing Angioplasty or bypass surgery. Some of the major reasons for them to avoid these procedures are fear of the surgical procedures, its complications & the financial burden it can cause to the family.

EECP treatment covers the whole heart’s well-being, including the entire vascular system, and, unlike surgery, it is not a localised procedure. There is no hospitalisation, as the procedure is an outpatient procedure. There is no risk of infection, as the procedure is a non-invasive treatment. There is no risk of formation of blood clots. It is simply a walk-in and walk-out procedure/session every time, there is no downtime. There is no anaesthesia administered for EECP procedure as it is completely painless. It has no adverse side effects on the body. There is no risk of complications in EECP, as it is an external procedure performed by mechanical means. There is no need to take any additional or separate medication for EECP. This have been scientifically proved and well documented worldwide. It is well validated by the evidences of science.

While promising similar relief likes Bypass and Angioplasty, EECP procedures are much more cost-effective when compared to surgical procedures.

It is a well-known fact that heart surgeries require delicate precision & the risk of complications is more and can be technically challenging. Further, extensive preparation is required for Bypass surgery and Balloon Angioplasty with a stent. Even the post-recovery period is fraught with many ‘DOs and Don’ts.’ All these can be avoided when undertaken by EECP procedures.
