Abstract: 目的: 介绍几个穴位透皮神经电刺激治疗对于心肺系统生理反应效用的科研。
方法: 研究穴位透皮神经电刺激治疗对28名健康正常人士中强度跑步后静止心率恢复的效用、16名哮喘患者及40名慢性阻塞性肺病患者在治疗后肺功能的改变及40名开胸心脏手术术后患者接受该治疗对于心率恢复的效用。
结果: 在接受该治疗后,哮喘患者于运动后肺功能下降的百分比明显减低;慢性阻塞性肺病患者肺功能及气喘指数也得到明显改善;促进健康正常的人士运动后心率的恢复;促进开胸心脏手术术后静止心率的恢复,降低恶心及呕吐指数。
结论: 穴位透皮神经电刺激治疗能减轻气管收窄及促进正常心率的恢复。
Objective: This article describes various projects which investigated the effect of transcutaneouselectrical nerve stimulation applied over acupuncture point(Acu-TENS) on physiological responses of the cardiopulmonary system.
Method: The projects included investigation of the effect of Acu-TENS on recovery of resting heart rate in 28 healthy subjects after running on treadmill at moderate exercise intensity.Two other studies described the effect of Acu-TENS on lung function in 16 subjects with asthma and 40 subjects with chronic obstructive airways disease(COPD) .The last study explored the effect of Acu-TENS on recovery heart rate in 40 patients after acute open heart surgery.
Result: These studies showed that subjects with asthma receiving Acu-TENS before,after and during exercise showed a reduced percentage drop of lung function after exercise.Acu-TENS improved lung function and dyspnoea score in subjects with COPD.Normal subjects who received Acu-TENS demonstrated a significant enhancement of heart rate recovery when compared with placebo group.Acu-TENS also facilitated return of resting heart rate and reduced nausea and vomiting index in subjects after open heart surgery.
Conclusion: Acu-TENS may help to alleviate airway obstruction and enhance the recovery of normal heart rate.
