EECP appears safe when applied as adjunct therapy for heart failure.
Efficacy results suggest that EECP can improve exercise tolerance capacity, quality of life and functional status, both in the short term and also for a period of 6 months after completion of the EECP therapy Results of the study warrant the initiation of a randomized controlled study to ascertain the effectiveness of EECP therapy in the management of patients with chronic stable heart failure.
