Abstract:Objective To observe the adjusting effect of acupuncture on patients receiving cardiac surgery under extracorporeal circulation. Methods Forty patients undergoing repair of auricular septal defect were randomly divided into acupuncture anesthesia ( n=15 ), acupuncture puls general anesthesia ( n =12) and general anesthesia groups ( n=16 ). Intraoperative mean arterial pressure (MAP) and pulse oxygen saturation (SpO 2), intraoperative and postoperative dosage of vasoactive drugs and the incidence of postoperative complications were observed. Results After the operation, MAP was significantly lower in general anesthesia group than in acupuncture anesthesia and acupuncture plus general anesthesia groups ( P <0.05); there were no statistically significant differences in SpO 2 and HR among the groups. Automatic cardioversion rate was significantly higher in acupuncture anesthesia and acupuncture plus general anesthesia groups than in general anesthesia group; the dosage of vasoactive drugs and the incidence of postoperative complications of circulative and nervous systems were significantly larger in general anesthesia group than in acupuncture anesthesia and acupuncture plus general anesthesia groups. Conclusion Acupuncture has a regulative effect of improving body’s functions in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
