Procedure of ECP

ECP increases blood flow by creating collaterals without surgery from outside the body by creating special pressures.

ECP increases blood flow:

- To heart by 20-42% 

- To brain by 22-26% 
- To kidneys by 19% 
ECP also increases heart's output (stroke volume) by 12% by reducing after load. This improves LVEF.
This is done by:
  •  Dilating blood vessels - Small blood vessels enlarge.
  •   Opening dormant blood vessels lying closed since birth.
  •  Angiogenesis – Forming new blood vessels.
ECP is a comfortable procedure.
Patient lies on the ECP bed wearing eight pressure cuffs - around calves, thighs, hips and arms (older ECPs had six cuffs). These increase blood flow by heart beat synchronized inflate and deflate synchronized with the heartbeat to. 
ECP is done one or two hour a day for 35 hour.
ECP means successfully fighting Heart Disease
Upto 90% patients improve. Most feel better in 15 to 20 hours treatment. ECP benefits last 3 to 7 years or more. ECP is so successful that in USA insurance reimbursement for ECP has gone up by 6 % whereas that for other procedures like angioplasty, bypass surgery etc. has decreased by 7%.
ECP a recognized treatment worldwide
ECP is internationally recognized by FDA (USA), CE Mark (Europe) etc. ECP is mentioned in medical textbooks. Many articles have been published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Reviews Reports, Cardiology, Mayo Clinical Proc., Clinical Cardiology, Journal of External Counter Pulsation, etc.
ECP is available.
ECP is available world-wide in most leading hospitals such as Cleveland Clinic, Johns Hopkins, JFK Medical Centre, Mayo Clinic, Miami Heart Institute, Texas Heart Institute, Hammersmith Hospital, London, etc
Current status and the expected future of ECP
Leading technology for treating cardiovascular disease is slowly moving from very invasive methods to less invasive. Medical history is witnesses that in the seventies bypass surgery was the big news in the treatment of coronary artery disease. In the eighties it was balloon angioplasty and in the nineties it was the stent now we can move still a step further to a totally noninvasive treatment with ECP. The Future belongs to those who succeed and ECP in now provided world-wide by leading hospitals. The success of ECP can be judged by the fact that in the US Medicare reimbursement rate for ECP has increased by 7% whereas that for other procedures like angioplasty and bypass surgery decreased by 6%.
Trained doctors at Sibia Medical Centre are well trained in ECP
Dr.Sibia has been trained at Red Cross Hospital, Canton and at Guangzhou Medical Apparatus & Instrument Factory (China) where ECP originated. Sibia Medical Centre introduced ECP in North India in 2002 and is authorized by the Chinese to train doctors in ECP. 
All EC P machines are not the same - compare the machines and the doctor's experience before deciding the treatment. 
For best results - Have treated by the best ECP machines at the most experienced medical centre. Don’t let the names confuse you – 
ECP (External Counter Pulsation) is the generic term for the treatment. 
There are brands by different manufacturers which may be misleading: like ASECP, EECP, Lifepulse, Cardiacassist, etc 
FDA(USA) clarified that they are all ECPs for same purpose but may vary in design and output. 
(and hence effectiveness). 
ECP machines can be classifies as follows: 
1st generation ECPs - Hydraulic, positive pressure 
2nd generation ECPs - Pneumatic, positive pressure 
3rd generation ECPs - Pneumatic, positive pressure, sequential 
4th generation ECPs - Pneumatic, positive / negative pressure, sequential 
5th generation ECPs - Pneumatic, positive / negative pressure (augmented), sequential with arm cuffs for more efficacy and possibility of treating cerebral circulatory disorders also 
Our ECP has all the above feature - many do not have active negative pressure deflation and arm cuffs thus decreasing their efficacy. To provide you the best we have the best – we keep up with the time 
Hence before you decide where to have the treatment - check: 
•Are you being misguided by the name? 
•Have you compared the features of the different ECPs available – are you being treated with the latest generation ECP or the ones obsolete abroad. 
Because we understand you.
Which patients can benefit by ECP and ACT?
Patients with decreased circulation anywhere can be treated such as:
Patients not fit for angioplasty and bypass surgery or do not want them
Before angioplasty or bypass to improve the cardiac status before surgery.
Patients with failed bypass or recurrence after bypass
Cerebral ischaemia, atherosclerosis, embolism, TIA, Vertebro-basilar insufficiency, Senile Dementia, Alzheimer disease, Cerebellar ataxia, 
Hearing deficiency, Memory Disorders, etc
Vascular headache and migraine
Renal hypertension
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Decreased sexual functioning due to erectile dysfunction 
To increase sports performance
How are ACT and ECP beneficial in so many conditions?
ACT and ECP are beneficial in all these conditions because all of them are due to decreased blood flow to the affected organ. As ACT and ECP increase circulation they benefit disease in any part of the body due to decreased blood flow.
