Benefits   arrow

Counterpulsation increases the blood flow to the heart through sequential compression of the lower extremities of the body in synchronization with a patient’s electrocardiogram. ECP has proven to be useful in the treatment of heart attacks (myocardial infarction), cardiogenic shock, angina and congestive heart failure.

Clinical experience indicates that patients have demonstrated improvement after external counterpulsation treatment such as:

  • Less recurrent chest pain
  • Less ventricular fibrillation
  • Reduction or elimination of shock symptoms
  • Decrease in heart size
  • Less progression to cardiac failure

Afterload Reduction

  • Increased quality of life
  • Decreased mortality rates

“Published studies have demonstrated total relief from angina pain and elimination or a significant reduction of the ischemic (oxygen deprived) areas of the heart in approximately 78% of stable angina patients.”
