WHAT IS EECP?

EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) treatment increases the blood flow to the heart and opens new blood vessels, which is popularly known as “Natural Bypass”. This technology is an alternate to Bypass Surgery & Angioplasty (stents) and is supervised by a Cardiologist. Over 120 clinical trials have been published in peer reviewed journals show that about 90% of angina / chest pain patients benefit and can prevent surgery.
EECP Treatment was developed at Harvard University and got US FDA approval in 1987. In 2015, the treatment got further revolutionized on getting US FDA approval for heart patients and for wellness as well.

“THE OPTION FOR PATIENTS WITH NO OPTION”

IDEAL FOR PEOPLE WHO.

  • Have Heart Blockage or Chest Pain (chronic stable angina)
  • Have Undergone Angioplasty / Bypass Surgery in the past
  • Want to avoid complications / be Heart Healthy for Life
  • Have Lifestyle Diseases (BP, Cholesterol, Diabetes)
  • Are No Option Patients, Low EF, High Risk Patients
  • Have PVD, Ischemic Stroke, Heart Failure

WHAT HAVE STUDIES SHOWN ABOUT EECP TREATMENT?

Clinical studies have shown that EECP is an effective treatment for angina. Studies have confirmed the following benefits

  • Relief of angina unresponsive to medical therapy
  • Relief of angina for which PTCA and CABG are no longer options
  • Improved blood flow to oxygen-deprived (ischemic) areas of heart muscle as evidenced in the resolution or improvement of perfusion defects on thallium scan.
  • Improved exercise capacity and an enhanced quality of life
  • Increase in energy reduces the high blood pressure
  • Increase cardiac output
  • Reduces the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

DO PATIENTS IMPROVE AFTER EECP THERAPY?

Yes, because EECP Therapy creates collaterals in the heart. These collaterals can help to supply blood flow to ischemic region caused by stenosis of the arteries.
Collateral circulation provides alternate routes of blood flow to the heart in case when the heart isn’t getting the blood supply it needs.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?

There are no known adverse effects as a result of receiving EECP.
Many people have continued their employment while receiving treatment by scheduling their sessions before or after work.

DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

What is Deep Vein Thrombosis…?
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot is embedded in one of the major deep veins of the lower legs, thighs, pelvis, or arm. A clot blocks blood circulation through these veins, which carry blood from the lower body back to the heart. The blockage can cause acute pain, swelling, or warmth in the affected leg.

Explanation

Blood clots in the veins can cause inflammation (irritation) called Thrombophlebitis. Other names for this condition include Thromboembolism, Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS), and Post-Phlebitic Syndrome.
– Severe complications of deep vein thrombosis occur when a clot breaks loose (or embolizes) and travels through the bloodstream, causing blockage of blood vessels (pulmonary arteries) in the lung called pulmonary embolism (PE), this can lead to severe difficulty in breathing and even death, depending on the degree of blockage.
– Symptoms and signs of DVT occur in the affected leg and include swelling, pain, redness, warmth to the touch, worsening leg pain when bending the foot, leg cramps (especially at night and/or in the calf), and discoloration of skin.
– Causes of deep vein thrombosis include damage to the inside of a blood vessel due to trauma or other conditions, changes in normal blood flow, or a rare state in which the blood is more likely than usual to clot (hypercoagulability).
– Risk factors for DVT/PE include prolonged sitting or immobility, recent surgery, recent trauma to the lower body, obesity, heart attack or heart failure, high altitudes, cancer, rare genetic conditions that affect blood clotting factors, certain heart or respiratory conditions, advanced age, and medical conditions that affect the veins.
– Diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis is confirmed using imaging tests such as Doppler ultrasound, venography, impedance plethysmography, and CT scan.

Carotid artery blockage treatment

Carotid artery disease occurs when fatty deposits (plaques) clog the blood vessels that deliver blood to your brain and head (carotid arteries). The blockage increases your risk of stroke, a medical emergency that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted or seriously reduced.
Stroke deprives your brain of oxygen. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Stroke is the most common cause of death and the leading cause of permanent disability in the U.S.
Carotid artery disease develops slowly. The first sign that you have the condition may be a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). A TIA is a temporary shortage of blood flow to your brain.
Treatment of carotid artery disease usually involves a combination of lifestyle changes, medication and sometimes surgery.

Symptoms

In its early stages, carotid artery disease often doesn’t produce any signs or symptoms. The condition may go unnoticed until it’s serious enough to deprive your brain of blood, causing a stroke or TIA.
Signs and symptoms of a stroke or TIA include:
Sudden numbness or weakness in the face or limbs, often on only one side of the body
Sudden trouble speaking and understanding
Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
Sudden dizziness or loss of balance
Sudden, severe headache with no known cause

Our Treatment

At Dr. Shahid Heart & General Hospital, Now Carotid Artery blockage is treatable without surgery with Latest Research of Nano technology in Nutritional Sciences. Treatment is carried out through latest Nano technology food supplements and Therapies. You can get rid of the disease within 08-12 weeks.

Paralysis

Paralysis is the loss of the ability to move some or all of the body.
It can have lots of different causes, some of which can be serious. Depending on the cause, it may be temporary or permanent.
Symptoms
The main symptom of paralysis is the inability to move part of your body, or not being able to move at all.
It can start suddenly or gradually. Sometimes it comes and goes.
Paralysis can affect any part of the body, including:

  • The face
  • The hands
  • One arm or leg (monoplegia)
  • One side of the body (hemiplegia)
  • Both legs (paraplegia)
  • Both arms and legs (tetraplegia or quadriplegia)

The affected part of the your body may also be:

  • Stiff (spastic paralysis), with occasional muscle spasms
  • Floppy (flaccid paralysis)
  • Numb, painful or tingly

ECG

What is ECG?

An electrocardiogram is used to monitor your heart. Each beat of your heart is triggered by an electrical impulse normally generated from special cells in the upper right chamber of your heart. An electrocardiogram — also called an ECG or EKG — records these electrical signals as they travel through your heart. Your doctor can use an electrocardiogram to look for patterns among these heartbeats and rhythms to diagnose various heart conditions. An electrocardiogram is a noninvasive, painless test.

Why It Is Done

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is done to:

  • Check the heart’s electrical activity.
  • Find the cause of unexplained chest pain, which could be caused by a heart attack, inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart (pericarditis), or angina.
  • Find the cause of symptoms of heart disease, such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, or rapid, irregular heartbeats (palpitations).
  • Find out if the walls of the heart chambers are too thick (hypertrophied).
  • Check how well medicines are working and whether they are causing side effects that affect the heart.
  • Check how well mechanical devices that are implanted in the heart, such as pacemakers, are working to control a normal heartbeat.
  • Check the health of the heart when other diseases or conditions are present, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cigarette smoking, diabetes, or a family history of early heart disease.

ECG Procedure

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is often performed by a technician. After changing into a hospital gown, you’ll lie on an examining table or bed. Electrodes — often 12 to 15 — will be attached to your arms, legs and chest. The electrodes are sticky patches applied with a gel to help detect and conduct the electrical currents of your heart. If you have hair on the parts of your body where the electrodes will be placed, the technician may need to shave the hair so that the electrodes stick properly.
You can breathe normally during the electrocardiogram. Make sure you’re warm and ready to lie still, however. Moving, talking or shivering may distort the test results. A standard ECG takes just a few minutes.

Echocardiography (ECHO)

An Echocardiogram, also known as a transthoracic (meaning viewed through the chest) echocardiogram, Echo or Echo Doppler, is an ultrasound of the heart. It is a simple procedure that requires no preparation on the part of the patient and does not use any radiation to produce the images. This test is used to view real time images of the beating heart and the blood flowing through it. This produces the ability to measure whether a proper amount of blood is being moved through the heart at a proper rate. It also shows if there are any defects in the actual heart muscle tissue or the valves.
This procedure involves the patient laying on a table, getting some gel applied to the chest area and having the Radiologist move a transducer around in that gel while measuring heart function. It is non-invasive and completely painless, and so safe that it is often used on pregnant women and infants.
The purpose of this procedure is to get an overall view of everything going on in the heart, including the size and shape of the heart, blood flow and any congenital defects such as prolapsed valves. An echocardiogram can show the cause of a heart murmur or arrhythmia, tissue damage to the heart, backflow of blood through improperly closing valves (regurgitation), and much more.
