What Happens During EECP Flow Therapy?
During EECP Flow Therapy, patients lie down on a padded table with specialized cuffs (similar to blood pressure cuffs) wrapped around their calves, lower thighs, and hips.
While the heart is in its resting phase, these cuffs inflate sequentially from the calves toward the hips. Then, just before the heart beats, the cuffs all deflate. This pressure creates blood flow that is similar to exercise–fueling all areas of your cardiovascular system with essential oxygenated blood while you rest.
It might feel a little different at first, but most patients settle in quickly, and our incredible staff is with you every beat along the way.
