Detailed Product Description
External Counterpulsation ECP is a non-surgical therapy for angina, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other conditions involving poor circulation. ECP is a mechanical procedure in which long inflatable cuffs (like blood pressure cuffs) are wrapped around both of the patient’s legs. ECP has two potentially beneficial actions on the heart. ECP, effectively, “pumps” blood into the coronary arteries. Second, by its deflating action just as the heart begins to beat, ECP creates something like a sudden vacuum in the arteries. The ECP pumping console then rapidly inflates and deflates the leg cuffs in time with the heartbeat.
