)-- Eastern Connecticut Cardiology Associates has announced that their center has had wonderful success in treating patients with Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP®) therapy, and in recognition of February as American Heart Month and the week of February 18 – 22, 2013 as National EECP® Therapy Week, the center welcomes anyone who has a family member or friend that has a need to improve their heart health to contact the center to learn more about EECP® therapy. EECP® is a therapy for people who are suffering from chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, pain in the jaw or back or fullness in the chest; all are possible signs of angina.
Eastern Connecticut Cardiology Associates LLC began EECP® therapy treatments in June 2012 and is proud to boast nearly 20 patients successfully completing full therapy programs. Patients have gratefully expressed an overall improvement in health and quality of life. Some have gone on to recommend this therapy to others as a helpful, non-invasive alternative. Eastern Connecticut Cardiology Associates LLC continues to strive to improve the heart health of their patients and are proud to offer EECP® therapy at their practice.
The Second Annual EECP® Therapy Week is a result of the International EECP® Therapists Association (IETA), the national organization of EECP® therapists and other healthcare professionals who provide EECP® therapy in hospitals, clinics and private practices. EECP® therapy centers around the country and some participating centers overseas will host events and conduct activities designed to increase the public’s awareness of EECP® therapy and the role it plays in cardiovascular disease management.
EECP® therapy is an FDA cleared, Medicare approved, non-invasive outpatient therapy for treating patients who are experiencing the symptoms of angina and heart failure. There are approximately 600 EECP® therapy centers in the United States and over 250 outside the USA in countries around the world on every continent, with the exception of Antarctica.
