[The acupuncture prevention of anomalies in labor strength in pregnant women of a risk group]
Acupuncture was carried out for 3-6 days in the course of preparation to labor of 80 pregnant women at risk of developing labor activity abnormalities. Pulmonary, renal, gastric meridians, anteromedian and auricular points were used. Acupuncture was conductive to improvement of the autonomic nervous system activity with the predominance of the cholinergic component. The course of spontaneous labor was normal and blood loss was significantly lower than in puerperae not administered acupuncture.
