External Counter Pulsation, or more commonly known as ECP, is a non-invasive treatment used to decrease the intensity and number of angina episodes.
Approved by the Ministry of Health Malaysia and FDA, this non-surgical treatment is easy, safe and painless that provides long lasting results.
1. How it is done
ECP treatment is administered through three pairs of external inflatable cuffs applied around the buttocks, upper legs and lower legs.
The cuffs around these parts continuously inflate and deflate between the resting period of the heartbeat. This is to increase the blood returning to the heart which helps provide more oxygen to its starved areas.
2. Benefits of ECP treatment
People undergoing the ECP treatment will definitely notice numerous benefits after undergoing the treatments. Among the benefits are an increase in oxygen supply for the heart and a decrease in chest pains.
Other benefits from the ECP treatment are an improved EKG response to exercise and also increase in energy and exercise duration.
3. Who is eligible for ECP treatment?
However, not everyone is eligible for ECP treatment. Individuals are only eligible if they have had coronary artery bypass (CABG) or stents placed in the coronary arteries with ongoing angina.
Individuals who have not had prior bypass or stenting but are suffering from angina are also qualified for treatment.
