OBJECTIVE: The primary aims of this study were to determine the major frequencies and powers of oscillations in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure in the anesthetized rat, and determine whether the CSF pressure oscillations correlated with the major oscillation frequencies in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems as proposed by some chiropractic theories. METHODS: The cardiac and ventilatory cycles, and CSF pressure were simultaneously recorded during spontaneous and positive-pressure mechanical ventilation in the anesthetized rat.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the adjuvant effect of transcutaneous electrical acupoint stimulation (TEAS) in propofol-fentanyl anesthesia in partial mastectomy. METHODS: Ninety patients undergoing partial mastectomy were randomly divided into 3 groups (n=30), namely group A with propofol-fentanyl anesthesia (PFVA), group B with PFVA and TEAS at Hegu-Laogong and Neiguan-WaiGuan acupoints, and group C with PFVA and TEAS at Hegu-Laogong, Neiguan-Waiguan, and bilateral Jianjing acupoints.
