EXTERNAL COUNTER PULSATOR (ECP)

Ischemic heart disease and heart failure are increasing in incidence and prevalence around the world. These diseases remain the commonest cause of disability and death than any other illness. Stable angina pectoris / Heart Failure are generally managed by drugs, initially, but subsequently are advised to undergo coronary angioplasty / revascularization procedures. A significant proportion of patients cannot undergo invasive procedures due to either co-morbid illness or cost. Such patients may benefit from non-invasive methods using External Counter Pulsator (ECP) which unfortunately are not widely available due to the exorbitant cost of these equipment. ECP has been shown by scientific studies to provide relief to patients with IHD in several ways.

Since ECP involves pneumatics based cardiac support, SBMT has identified DEBEL to take up this area of research. The proposal intends to design and develop pneumatics which works in relation to ECG algorithms.
