[Influence of changing Ca++ concentration in neiguan (PC 6) on the effect of acupuncture treating experimental arrhythmia of rabbits]
Acupuncture Department, Tianjin College of TCM.
We have made two kinds of experimental arrhythmia of rabbits by injecting aconitine and stimulating hypothalamus. Acupuncture could improve arrhythmia, after Ca++ in Neiguan (PC6) was chelated with EDTA solution the effect of acupuncturing Neiguan (PC6) was abolished. It indicates that Ca++ may be the key factor of acupuncture effect and one of the important material bases of the functional activity of meridians and collaterals.
