By Chen SC; Lu SN; Lai CT; Jean JY; Hsiao CL; Hsu PT.

Kao-Hsiung i Hsueh Ko Hsueh Tsa Chih Kaohsiung Journal of Medical Sciences,

Pub type: Clinical Trial; Journal Article.

Abstract: The analgesic effects of acupuncture are well-documented. Aqueous acupuncture, or point injection, is a conveniently modified modern acupuncture method. This matched controlled trial was carried out to evaluate the effects of aqueous acupuncture in postoperative pain control.

A total of 12 patients were selected as age-, sex- and operative-style-matched controls. In treating group, 2 to 5 ml of 20% glucose solution was injected into Ho-Ku (LI 4) and Yang-Ling-Chuan (GB 34) when patients had regained consciousness from operation anesthesia. The pain intensity were recorded as score system included verbal, sleep disturbance and use of narcotics.

In comparisons with the control group, the intensity of postoperative pain, and the amounts and frequency of narcotics used were significantly lower in the study group, especially for the first 12 postoperative hours. Aqueous acupuncture is a convenient and effective procedure in postoperative pain control.
