Abstract: Improvement of Angina, Quality of Life, and Working Capacity After Enhanced External Counterpulsation

We are thrilled to share this case study from Denmark. The study highlights a woman’s journey towards improvement from angina, a better quality of life and working capacity after receiving Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) Therapy.

A 43-year-old woman was hospitalized 15 times in 6 years because of chest pain. She was diagnosed with reversible ischaemia, a temporary shortage of blood flow to the heart. Her doctor confirmed that she was suffering from Class III angina, based on Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) classification. She experienced chest pain doing simple, everyday living activities, leading to a poor quality of life. With no signs of improvement after going through other recommended treatments, she turned to EECP® Therapy.  After a course of EECP® Therapy, her angina was reduced from Class III to Class I, and she was able to resume normal, everyday activity, allowing her quality of life to improve significantly. Her quality of life remained high for the next three years and she was only admitted to the hospital once due to chest pain.

If you’ve tried other angina treatments with less than satisfying results, ask your doctor about EECP® therapy and hopefully it will work for you too!
