Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To observe the promoting consciousness effect of acupuncture for neurosurgery patients with disorder of consciousness.

METHODS

Ninety-two neurosurgery patients with medium or severe disorder of consciousness were randomly divided into an acupuncture plus medicine group and a western medicine group, 46 cases in each group. The acupuncture plus medicine group was treated with the routine western medicine and acupuncture with strong stimulation at twelve Jing points and Shuigou (GV 26) combined with electroacupuncture at Baihui (GV 20), Sishencong (EX-HN 1), Shenting (GV 24) and Benshen (GB 13). The western medicine group was treated by routine western medicine. Two courses later, the therapeutic effects were compared between the two groups.

RESULTS

After treatment, the total effective rate was 100.0% in the acupuncture plus medicine group and 91.3% in the western medicine group, with a significant difference between the two groups (P<0.01).

CONCLUSION

Strong stimulation of acupuncture at twelve Jing points and Shuigou (GV 26) combined with electroacupuncture at the head acupoints have an obvious promotion of consciousness recovery for neurosurgery patients with disturbance of consciousness, and acupuncture involved in the treatment can significantly shorten the healing time.
