In brief: To decrease angina
Enhanced external counterpulsation (eecp) is a procedure that forces more blood to flow into the coronary arteries (which supply blood to heart muscle).
A person uses the eecp machine 1 hour, 5 days a week, for 7 weeks. The treatments are intended to cause long-term improvements in blood flow to the heart muscle, thus decreasing angina (chest pain) symptoms. Only certain patients qualify for eecp.
