Key Mechanisms of Action
Hemodynamic Effects of RejuvaHeart™ Therapy
The RejuvaHeart ECP system opens the door to new revenue opportunities while addressing today’s demanding clinical environment. The system is designed to deliver effective therapy and seamlessly integrate with information technology systems, track patient outcomes and improve efficiency for clinicians.
RejuvaHeart ECP systems incorporate advanced technology with proven effectiveness and reliability,
External Counterpulsation Therapy (ECP Therapy) has documented great benefit for many cardiac patients in several credible, peer reviewed journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal American College of Cardiology. However, in order to be eligible for reimbursement from Medicare & private insurance, you must adhere to the standard guidelines put forth by the Centers for Medicare &
RejuvaHeart™ therapy is distinctively different from other common approaches to angina such as cardiac catherization, angioplasty, stent placement, and coronary artery bypass surgery. None of these procedures actually address the real underlying heart issue.
Build up of atherosclerotic plaques can prevent blood flow to the heart muscle, resulting in oxygen starvation of the cardiac muscle tissue.
The publications listed below will provide you a great start in understanding the benefits, mechanisms of action, and long-term outcomes of RejuvaHeart™ therapy.
The counterpulsating action of RejuvaHeart™ increases venous return and cardiac output. During RejuvaHeart™ systolic unloading is improved by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the heart, while diastolic augmentation increases the energy supply to the heart thus reducing the workload of the heart.
The hemodynamic effects of RejuvaHeart™ also increase the pressure gradient as well as the release of vascular growth factors that enhance coronary collateral circulation.
ECP Therapy may reduce the need for medications, increase exercise tolerance and improve your patient’s quality of life.
Yes, it’s completely non-invasive, thereby reducing the risk of complications associated with surgery.
