Advanced EECPuses a set of computer-controlled inflatable leg cuffs, in a series of 1-hour sessions, to improve blood flow to the heart muscle. While nobody fully understands why, it turns out that a series of EECP sessions significantly improves angina and exercise

Chennai, Tamil Nadu, February 18, 2009 /India PRwire/ -- Advanced EECPuses a set of computer-controlled inflatable leg cuffs, in a series of 1-hour sessions, to improve blood flow to the heart muscle. While nobody fully understands why, it turns out that a series of EECP sessions significantly improves angina and exercise tolerance in most patients with angina due to coronary artery disease. Medicare currently reimburses for EECP only in patients with angina who are not candidates for angioplasty, stenting or bypass surgery.

The Enhanced External Counter pulsation (EECP) is an advanced medical equipment which is used for a Non-invasive treatment for refractory angina and Heart failure. This novel equipment has been recognized by the Food and drug administration, USA. This is a unique method which offers relief of anginal pain, breathlessness and enhances the flow of blood and overall improves the quality of life of the patients.

It also improves the myocardial perfusion to the ischemic area. It increases the coronary blood flow velocity which would lead to the formation of new vessels and thus opens the dormant collaterals. This treatment plays a vital role in the case of patients with unstable angina and the treatment is well tolerated in patients with heart failure. In such a case, during the course of a treatment the drop in oxygen saturation is also monitored and patients who have undergone this treatment have very soon found reduction and relief in anginal episodes. It also increases the treadmill exercise time and ultimately increases the cardiac output. Generally cardiac patients are treated for one hour per day, six days a week for about six weeks so as to obtain optimal results. In some patients where the problem is chronic they are also offered the treatment for two hours a day.

This is a boon for patients suffering from heart ailments as this does not involve hospitalization and the patient can just walk out after treatment and can very well attend to his daily routine of life. The most important fact is that it does not require a surgery and therefore there is no loss of blood or scar and above all there is no pain or trauma. Overall it relieves the family members from causing unwanted anxiety and fear in their minds.

This unique medical equipment though it has been introduced in very few hospitals, the most advanced version of this equipment, with a lot of extra medical and technological features incorporated in it has just come out. This new version of the medical equipment, with the state of the art medical equipment technology has been introduced for the first time only by Dr. Ayaz Akber, at the Huma Oxymed hospital. This is an absolute boon for cardiac patients who can be very well cured without having to undergo the pain and trauma of heart surgery. This rare medical equipment and treatment facility is now only available at the Huma Oxymed Hospital.
