For improving angiographic potential in the LDM, ES can be started safely immediately post-CMP at 15 cpm (a 1:4 or 1:5 regimen) and single impulses per burst. For partial cardiac assist and for improving LDM performance, cardiac assist can be used for 30 minutes twice daily immediately post-CMP. To rest the muscle and save it from overuse, muscle contraction can be either stopped or slowed down during hours of sleep.
