Abstract Skeletal muscular counterpulsation (MCP) has been used as a new noninvasive technique for treatment of low cardiac output. The MCP method is based on ECG-triggered skeletal muscle stimulation. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate acute hemodynamic changes induced by MCP in the experimental animal.
