Effect of electroacupuncture on minimum alveolar concentration of isoflurane in dogs



Effect of electroacupuncture on minimum alveolar concentration of isoflurane in dogs



Journal of Veterinary Medical Science 65(1): 145-147



The effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on minimum alveolar concentration (MAC) of isoflurane was evaluated in dogs. After determination of baseline MAC, EA was applied at each acupoints (LI-4, SP-6, ST-36 and TH-8) and nonacupoint for 30 min. MAC was determined again. EA at acupoints significantly lowered the MAC of isoflurane in dogs (17.5+or-3.1%, 21.3+or-8.0%, 21.2+or-7.5% and 15.4+or-3.1%, respectively).
