  Title Electroacupuncture reduces the dose of midazolam monitored by the bispectral index in critically ill patients with mechanical ventilation: an exploratory study Type of Study RCT
  Year 2012 Publication Acupuncture in medicine : journal of the British Medical Acupuncture Society Abbreviated Journal Acupunct Med  
  Volume 30 Issue 2 Pages 78-84  
  Keywords AcuTrials; RCT; Anesthesia and Analgesia; Pain, Postoperative; Acu + Usual Care Versus > 1 Control; Acupuncture; Electroacupuncture; TCM Acupuncture Style; Fixed Acupuncture Protocol; Restricted Modalities, Acupuncture Only; Usual Care Control, Pharmaceutical; CAM Control; Acu Versus Acu  
  Abstract OBJECTIVE: Electroacupuncture, a modern variation on a traditional Chinese treatment, might be useful for sedation and analgesia. This study aims to investigate whether electroacupuncture can modify the dose of midazolam monitored by the bispectral index (BIS) in critically ill patients with mechanical ventilation. METHODS: Orotracheally intubated patients undergoing mechanical ventilation were randomly assigned into three groups (groups A, B and C). All patients were given an intravenous infusion of midazolam. Patients in group A received no additional treatment. Patients in group B were given acupuncture without electrical stimulation at acupuncture points GV24 and EX-HN3 (Yintang) for 6 h simultaneously, and patients in group C were given electroacupuncture to the same points as in group B. RESULTS: Maintaining the BIS between 60 and 80, the hourly mean one dose of midazolam within the first 6 h after sedation in group C was 0.05 (+/-0.02 mg/kg per hour), which was significantly lower than both group A (0.08+/-0.03 mg/kg per hour, p<0.001) and group B (0.07+/-0.01 mg/kg per hour, p<0.021). The doses in groups A and B showed no significant difference. Between-group comparison analysis of hepatic and renal function and severe adverse reactions all showed no significant difference between the three groups. CONCLUSIONS: Electroacupuncture appears to reduce markedly the dose of sedative drug required in critically ill patients with mechanical ventilation monitored by BIS, without any obvious severe adverse action, and larger studies to confirm the effect are justified.

  Title Manage migraine with acupuncture: a review of acupuncture protocols in randomized controlled trials Type of Study Systematic Review
  Year 2010 Publication The American journal of Chinese medicine Abbreviated Journal Am J Chin Med  
  Volume 38 Issue 4 Pages 639-650  
  Keywords AcuTrials; Systematic Review; Headache Disorders; Migraine; Acupuncture  
  Abstract The aim of this article is to present a standardized protocol of acupuncture for the management of migraine. A systematic review of available randomized controlled trials of acupuncture for migraineurs was conducted in the five following electronic databases: Cochrane Central Register of Controlled trials, MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO and CINAHL. Information of selected acupoints and treatment course was extracted from the included trials. Then we analyzed the treatment methods used in these trials, to identify any similarities of therapeutic approaches. Additionally, quality of all the included trials was assessed. At last, the extracted information of acupuncture protocols was analyzed, and the similarities of therapeutic approaches were summed up. Bilateral use of the following points is recommended: Fengchi (GB20), Taiyang (EX-HN5), etc. De-qi sensation is requested in acupuncture manipulating procedure, and manual stimulation is suggested. The optimal treatment frequency is twice a week with one week rest between the first 10 and the last 10 sessions. Additionally, the duration of one treatment session ought to be 30 minutes, while it is recommended to use about 20 needles in one session. The total duration of an acupuncture treatment should be at least 10 weeks. The protocol analyzed from trials with positive results is different from trials with negative in number of treatment sessions. Therefore in future trials, enough acupuncture treatment sessions should be fully considered.

  Title Meta-analysis of scalp acupuncture for acute hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage Type of Study Systematic Review
  Year 2011 Publication Journal of alternative and complementary medicine (New York, N.Y.) Abbreviated Journal J Altern Complement Med  
  Volume 17 Issue 4 Pages 293-299  
  Keywords Systematic Review; Cerebral Hemorrhage, Hypertensive; Cardiovascular Diseases; Nervous System Diseases; AcuTrials; Acupuncture; Electroacupuncture  
  Abstract Abstract Objectives: Scalp acupuncture (SA) is a commonly used therapeutic approach for primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), but the efficacy and safety of SA therapy are still undetermined. The aim of this study is to systematically evaluate the efficacy and safety of SA therapy for the treatment of acute hypertensive ICH. Methods: Literature reports with randomized controlled clinical trials and controlled clinical trials on SA therapy for acute hypertensive ICH were searched, and the efficacy and safety of SA therapy were evaluated by using the Cochrane systematic review methods. The primary outcome measures were death or dependency at the end of long-term follow-up (at least 3 months) and adverse events. The secondary outcome measure was neurological deficit improvement at the end of the treatment course. Results: Seven (7) independent trials (230 patients) were included in this study. All trials described the methods of randomization in which four trials had adequate concealment of randomization at the level of grade A, but no trial included sham acupuncture as a control group. None of the trials included “death or dependency” as a primary outcome measure. Four (4) trials contained safety assessments and stated that no adverse event was found, whereas the other three trials did not provide the information about adverse events. By using random effects statistical model, it was found that patients with acute hypertensive ICH who received SA therapy had significantly improved neurological deficit scores (Z = 4.97, p &lt; 0.01). Conclusions: Although SA therapy is widely used to treat acute hypertensive ICH in TCM, the efficacy and safety of SA therapy remain to be further determined. No evidence is available on whether SA therapy can be used to treat acute ICH according to the primary outcome measure. However, SA therapy appears to be able to improve neurological deficit in patients with acute hypertensive ICH.

  Abstract Objective: To observe the effect of acupuncture on hyperplasia of mammary glands. Methods: Sixty patients with hyperplasia of mammary glands were randomly divided into 2 groups, the treatment group and the control group, 30 cases in each group. The patients in the treatment group were treated by acupuncture combined with electromagnetic therapy, while the patients in the control group were treated by Tamoxifen. After treatment, the serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) levels were detected during luteal phase. Results: The total effective rate of the treatment group was 90.3%, while it was 93.3% in the control group, there was no statistical difference (P>0.05). The E2 levels decreased, and the P levels increased in the two groups. After treatment, the E2 and P levels were significantly different from those before in the two groups(P<0.05). And there was no statistical difference of the E2 and P levels between the two groups both before and after the treatments. Conclusion: Acupuncture combined with electromagnetic therapy can regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis' function, and can repair normal process from hyperplasia to involution of the mammary

glands. According to our study, the effect of acupuncture combine with electromagnetic therapy was almost the same as with western medicine.

  Abstract Objectives: To evaluate whether electroacupuncture (EA) at ST36 can accelerate the recovery of gastrointestinal motility after colorectal surgery. Methods: Forty patients of American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status II and III undergoing elective open resection of malignant colorectal tumours were included in this study. Using a sealed envelope method, the patients were randomly divided into two groups either receiving EA (EA group) or sham EA (SEA group). Data regarding the recovery of bowel function (times to the first bowel sounds, passage of flatus and defaecation) were collected and analysed. Results: In the EA group, the time intervals from surgery to the first bowel movement and passage of flatus were shorter than in the SEA group (13±10 h vs 19±13 h, p<0.05 and 23 ±14 h vs 32±18 h, p<0.05, respectively). There was no significant difference between the groups regarding the time to first defaecation (68±45 h vs 72±53 h, p>0.05). Conclusions: EA at ST36 accelerates the recovery of gastrointestinal motility after colorectal surgery.

  Title Acupuncture for adults with overactive bladder: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials Type of Study Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Medicine Abbreviated Journal Medicine (Baltimore)  
  Volume 97 Issue 8 Pages e9838  
  Keywords *Acupuncture Therapy/adverse effects; Adult; Humans; Urinary Bladder, Overactive/drug therapy/physiopathology/*therapy; Urination; Urological Agents/therapeutic use  
  Abstract BACKGROUND: Overactive bladder is stated as the occurrence of urinary urgency which will cause negative impacts and decrease patients' health-related quality of life. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the efficiency and safety of acupuncture for adults with overactive bladder (OAB) comparing with sham-acupuncture, drugs, and acupuncture plus drugs. METHODS: We independently searched 9 databases from beginning to August 15, 2017. Two writers extracted data at the same time independently. Study outcomes were calculated by standardized mean differences (SMD) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) and mean difference (MD) with 95% CIs. RESULTS: Ten randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with 794 patients were included in this systematic review. The combined results showed that electroacupuncture (EA) may be more effective than sham electroacupuncture (sham EA) in improving the 24-hour nocturia episodes and EA may enhance tolterodine for relieving voiding symptoms and enhancing patients' quality of life. However, more trials with high quality and larger sample sizes will be needed in the future to provide sufficient evidence. Only 15 of 794 OAB patients from the included studies reported mild adverse reactions related to EA, therefore, acupuncture is safe for treating OAB. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture might have effect in decreasing the number of micturition episodes, incontinence episodes, and nocturia episodes. However, the evidence is insufficient to show the effect using acupuncture alone or the additional effect to drugs in treating OAB.

  Title Acupuncture for adults with overactive bladder: A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials Type of Study Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication Medicine Abbreviated Journal Medicine (Baltimore)  
  Volume 97 Issue 8 Pages e9838  
  Keywords *Acupuncture Therapy/adverse effects; Adult; Humans; Urinary Bladder, Overactive/drug therapy/physiopathology/*therapy; Urination; Urological Agents/therapeutic use  
  Abstract BACKGROUND: Overactive bladder is stated as the occurrence of urinary urgency which will cause negative impacts and decrease patients' health-related quality of life. The aim of this systematic review is to assess the efficiency and safety of acupuncture for adults with overactive bladder (OAB) comparing with sham-acupuncture, drugs, and acupuncture plus drugs. METHODS: We independently searched 9 databases from beginning to August 15, 2017. Two writers extracted data at the same time independently. Study outcomes were calculated by standardized mean differences (SMD) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) and mean difference (MD) with 95% CIs. RESULTS: Ten randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with 794 patients were included in this systematic review. The combined results showed that electroacupuncture (EA) may be more effective than sham electroacupuncture (sham EA) in improving the 24-hour nocturia episodes and EA may enhance tolterodine for relieving voiding symptoms and enhancing patients' quality of life. However, more trials with high quality and larger sample sizes will be needed in the future to provide sufficient evidence. Only 15 of 794 OAB patients from the included studies reported mild adverse reactions related to EA, therefore, acupuncture is safe for treating OAB. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture might have effect in decreasing the number of micturition episodes, incontinence episodes, and nocturia episodes. However, the evidence is insufficient to show the effect using acupuncture alone or the additional effect to drugs in treating OAB.
