Patient frequently asked questions

IS IT ADVISABLE TO TAKE EECP THERAPY MORE THAN ONCE?

Yes. You can repeat the EECP treatment again if your symptoms return. Since the treatment is non-invasive, and similar to a passive exercise, it can be repeated without any risk. Heart disease is a chronic progressive illness and no treatment for heart disease is once in your lifetime treatment.

WHEN CAN I START DOING EXERCISE WHILE I’M UNDERGOING EECP THERAPY?

Your doctor will discuss an exercise program based on your heart condition. Usually, you will be asked to begin exercises after 15 sessions of EECP treatment. Exercising during EECP will enhance the treatment effect and continuing exercise after treatment will help you to maintain the benefits achieved.

  • Low risk
  • No additional medication required
  • No side effect
