Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia.
Int Immunopharmacol. 2010 Jul;10(7):760-8. Epub 2010 Apr 22. PMID: 10437209
In the present paper, 45 cases of acute trigeminal neuralgia were treated and observed by comparative method. Results showed no significant difference in transient analgesic effect (P>0.05) but a significant difference in therapeutic effect (P<0.01) between the treatment and control groups. This indicates that blood-letting puncture with cupping is an effective therapy for the disease.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic effect differences between electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting plus cupping and western medicine therapy. METHODS: Fifty-three cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n=31) and a control group (n=22). The observation group was treated by electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting with a plum-blossom needle at the affected parts plus cupping, once each day. The control group was treated by oral administration of Valaciclovir Hydrochlordide, Indomethacin, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. RESULTS: The cured and markedly effective rate of 96.8% in the observation group was better than that of 81.8% in the control group (P<0.05), and improvements of pain, pruritus, burning sensation and sleep in the observation group were superior to those of the control group (all P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping is a better therapy for herpes zoster and its therapeutic effect is better than that of routine western medicine therapy.

Application of pulsed arterial resuscitation in a rabbit model of hemorrhagic shock.

BACKGROUND: Hemorrhagic shock is characterized by tissue hypoperfusion caused by a sharp reduction in the effective circulating volume of blood. The key to successful resuscitation lies in eliminating the shock as soon as possible while simultaneously restoring blood perfusion to vital organs. We present the applicability of pulsed arterial blood reinfusion for resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock.
METHODS: Sixty rabbits were randomly assigned to resuscitation and control groups. A rabbit hemorrhagic shock model was developed by bloodletting from the carotid artery. The dynamic changes in blood pressure, urine output, blood lactate, and other indicators were measured.
RESULTS: Compared with the control group, the mean arterial pressure (MAP), pulse pressure, and urine output were significantly higher in the resuscitation group at 60 min (MAP: 83.67±3.90 vs. 38.19±3.50 mmHg, p<0.001; pulse difference: 16.46±2.21 vs. 10.27±2.99 mmHg, p<0.001; urine output: 3.68±0.74 vs. 0.10±0.05 mL·kg-1·min-1, p<0.001), whereas the serum lactate level was significantly lower (3.82±0.50 vs. 6.49±0.61 mmol/L, p<0.001). In addition, the resuscitation group had a significantly higher lactate clearance rate (30 min: 0.26%±0.11% vs. 0.25%±0.14%, p<0.001; 60 min: 0.30%±0.09% vs. 0.67%±0.26%, p<0.001) than the control group.
CONCLUSION: Pulsed arterial resuscitation might be useful for emergency treatment of hemorrhagic shock.
