EECP: Enhanced External Counter Pulsation
Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) improves circulation to the heart without medications or conventional therapies. Research shows that it appears to stimulate the opening of new, natural pathways around narrowed or blocked arteries. Many people who have received EECP treatment report fewer and less severe instances of angina, increased energy levels and have greatly improved their ability to engage in activities of daily living. In addition, patients are often able to enjoy moderate exercise for the first time since they developed angina. No major adverse reactions have been reported.
What to expect during EECP
EECP programs run for seven weeks. Patients are seen on an outpatient basis five days a week for one hour sessions in our Mineola location on Long Island. Upon completion, patients will qualify for a follow-up cardiac rehabilitation program. With patients reporting an increased energy level following EECP treatment, they are more likely to become active participants in an exercise program.
