Frequently Asked Questions

It is always better to be curious than being critical. Particularly in the matter of a technology that is relatively new. And when it is the matter of heart, health and life, it is always good to carry some doubts to attain the best benefits.

Most patients experience positive results, such as the following:

  • Having no angina or angina that is less frequent and less intense
  • Having more energy
  • Being able to take part in more activities of daily living with little or no angina
  • Enjoying a better quality of life
  • Having a more positive outlook
There is a feeling of pressure from the cuffs around your legs and buttocks. Once you become accustomed to this pressure, the sessions usually pass comfortably.
EECP is administered on a standard regiment of one hour a day, five days per week for seven weeks. This totals thirty-five one hour treatments to complete a course of EECP.
Having your EECP therapy each day of the seven-week treatment course is an important part of receiving the greatest benefit. Missed treatments are usually made up so you receive all 35 hours.
EECP therapy is often described as being like “passive exercise,” so you may feel tired after the first few days of treatment. This is normal, especially if you haven’t been exercising. Usually, once this short “training period” is over, you will begin to notice that you have more energy.
Each patient responds differently. Most patients report beginning to feel better about halfway through the seven weeks.
The International EECP Patient Registry (IEPR) collects data on the safety, effectiveness, and long-term benefits of EECP therapy. The IEPR data have shown that benefits of EECP therapy can last up to three years after completing a full course (35 hours) of treatment. Other smaller studies have shown the benefits last up to five years in some patients.
Occasionally, patients develop mild skin irritation in the areas under the treatment cuffs or experience muscle or joint discomfort. Some patients feel tired after the first few treatments but this usually ends after the first week. Rarely, patients develop shortness of breath requiring hospitalization and treatment. Your EECP therapist is trained to make your treatments safe and to minimize risk.
No. Our bodies follow the laws of physics, and one principle law is that fluid will travel in the path of least resistance. Atherosclerotic plaques are calcified and hard, and they create an obstruction that detours the blood through alternate routes. During EECP, when your blood is flowing to the heart, it will naturally bypass arteries with plaque and enter healthy, non-diseased blood vessels to go around blockages. Throughout the EECP cycle, these new pathways are reinforced and become lasting routes for blood to reach your heart muscle beyond blockages. Almost every EECP patient has multiple blockages; no one has ever had a heart attack or a stroke as a result of the treatment.
No. Patients as young as thirty and as old as ninety-five have successfully completed EECP without any complications. Many of our patients are in their eighties and older and have excellent results.
Yes. Most patients have had at least one of these procedures. They come for EECP® because they still experience cardiovascular symptoms.
There are very few patients who cannot have EECP. The individuals who should not be treated include pregnant women, those with a severe aneurysm (thinned & bulging vessel walls) in their aorta requiring surgical repair, and patients with active blood clots in their legs.
EECP was FDA approved in 1995 for the treatment of coronary artery disease and angina, cardiogenic shock, and for use during a heart attack. In 2002, the FDA approved EECP as a treatment for congestive heart failure. EECP has undergone clinical trials at leading universities around the world and been subject to over a hundred scientific studies published in the most prestigious medical journals throughout the world.
