Acupuncture for cardiovascular disorders.
Cardiopet, Inc., Floral Park, New York.
Experimental studies in animals and clinical studies in humans have demonstrated that acupuncture can exert significant effects on the cardiovascular system and provide effective therapy for a variety of cardiovascular ailments. In veterinary practice, acupuncture should be considered as adjunctive therapy in cases of shock and cardiac arrest. Acupuncture may also be beneficial as adjunctive or sole therapy in the management of congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, and systemic hypertension.
