Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To compare therapeutic effects of acupuncture combined with hyperbaric oxygenation and simple hyperbaric oxygenation on delayed encephalopathy in the patient of acute carbon monoxide poisoning.

Sixty inpatients were randomly divided into an observation group and a control group. The observation group were treated with acupuncture at Neiguan (PC 6), Shuigou (GV 26), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Baihui (GV 20), Sishencong (EX-HN 1), etc., and hyperbaric oxygenation. The control group were treated with simple hyperbaric oxygenation. Nerve function defect was evaluated.

RESULTS:

The total effective rate was 96.7% in the observation group and 86.7% in the control group, the observation group being significantly higher than the control group (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Acupuncture combined with hyperbaric oxygenation has a significant therapeutic effect on delayed encephalopathy in the patient of acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
