[The influence of changing the Ca2+ concentration of the point quze (PC3) on the curative effect of puncturing neiguan (PC6) in experimental arrhythmic rabbits]
Tianjin College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The experimental arrhythmic model was made with Aconitin in rabbits. The Neiguan (PC6) point was punctured to observe the influence on recovering time of arrhythmia. After the curative effect of puncturing Neiguan(P6) was confirmed, Ca2+ in the Quze (PC3) point of the Pericardium is chelated by EDTA solution to observe the influence on curative effect of arrhythmia by puncturing Neiguan. The result shows that the curative effect doesn't exist after the Ca2+ in Quze is chelated. It is probable that Ca2+ is one of the most important factors producing acupuncture effect. As a result, Ca2+ probably involves in the activities of channels and collaterals.
