Acupuncture Analgesia in Surgery
Perhaps the most dramatic example of acupuncture’s ability to control pain is the use of acupuncture during surgery. Acupuncture analgesia has been used for battlefield surgery in China since at least 200 A.D. Research shows that acupuncture may be effective in perioperative settings for preoperative sedation, and for postoperative pain relief, nausea and vomiting but requires a high level of expertise by the acupuncture practitioner.
Recently we made a film with reporter Hendrik Sybrandi, anesthesiologist Mimi Wong, and surgeon Rebecca Knight.
