Abstract

Objective

To investigate the efficacy of treating craniocerebral trauma-related coma with acupuncture plus hyperbaric oxygen.

Methods

Coma patients were randomly allocated into observation and control groups. Routine surgery or non-surgical treatment was given according to the condition of injury. The observation group received acupuncture plus hyperbaric oxygen as well as the treatment for the control group. The score was counted by the Glasgow coma scale before and after the treatment. A chi-square test was used.

Results

There was a very significant difference in curative effect between the observation and control groups (P<0.01).

Conclusion

Treatment with acupuncture plus hyperbaric oxygen can promote the patients’ early revival.
