Flow Therapy is advancing the EECP patient experience by pairing treatments with comprehensive education for chronic conditions including medication reconciliation.
Patient Types Who Can Benefit from Flow Therapy
What Is Flow Therapy?
In the span of 35 hour-long EECP treatments delivered over 7 weeks, Flow Therapy makes a lasting difference in patients facing limitations associated with heart disease. Patients lie on a treatment table where compressive cuffs (similar to large blood pressure cuffs) are securely wrapped around their calves, thighs, and buttocks.
These cuffs inflate in a distal to proximal sequence during diastole, and deflate simultaneously just prior to the onset of systole. Inflation and deflation are specifically timed to the patient’s ECG to optimize therapeutic benefit.
The sequential cuff inflation creates a retrograde pressure wave that augments diastolic pressure, increasing coronary perfusion pressure and venous return to the right heart (increasing preload and cardiac output). Rapid and simultaneous cuff deflation decreases systemic vascular resistance, afterload, and cardiac workload.
