“What is EECP heart treatment?” is a question every EECP treatment centre is asked over and over again. EECP stands for Enhanced External Counter Pulsation Therapy. It is an FDA approved treatment meant for cardiac patients. EECP helps to increase the blood supply to the heart muscles by increasing the collateral network of blood vessels.
EECP is a registered trademark of Vasomedical USA.
EECP is a completely non-invasive and painless therapy. It involves no scars, cuts or wounds. It generally involves a standard 35 days of treatment. Each of the 35 treatment sessions lasts for one hour and the patient is required to undertake sessions for six days a week for six weeks.
It is very important that the patient adhere to the one-hour time schedule fixed up by the Hospital or Medical Centre. EECP is an outpatient, day-care based procedure where the patient visits the clinic for the session and leaves.
