当中医针灸居然进入美国大型医院急诊的时候......



美国的急诊室(西医院)的中医针灸


一位名为Adam的在美国明尼苏达州的明尼阿波利斯城的阿博特西北医院的急诊科践行中医的针灸师.


那针灸被运用该院急诊这个事实是真的吗?我们请看如下资料。



美国阿博特医院首创急诊运用中医针灸!

Abbott Northwestern Hospital is the largest private hospital in the Twin Cities, Abbott Northwestern is reconized nationally and locally for its exceptional expertise and care. Each year, the hospital serves more than 200,000 patients and their families from across the Twin Cities and Upper Midwest. Abbott pioneers acupuncture in the Emergency Room. 



这个名为阿博特西北医院的规模有多大呢?它是美国Twin Cities著名双城明尼阿波利斯与圣保罗及邻近的多个郡所组成的都会区(这个都会区现时已跨越了明尼苏达州的边界进入威斯康星州,发展成为一个由13个郡、188个城镇组成的都会区,人口约360万,是现时美国人口第16多的都会区)最大的私人医院,每年为20多万患者服务。



有此可见该私人医院(大家都知道美国最好的医院是私人医院)的规模非常大,中医针灸能被认可并被运用于该医院急诊充分说明针灸的作用被该医院认可。


Abbott Northwestern Hospital is reporting success using acupuncture in its emergency room to treat condition ranging from car accident injuries to migraines to kidney stones, and hoping to prove that the traditional Chinese treatment can reduce doctors' reliance on addictive opioids to manage patients' pain.

The Minneapolis hospital was the first in the nation to staff its Emergency Room with an acupuncturist two years ago, as part of  a broader campaign to promote Eastern remedies as complements to Western mainstream medicine.

阿博特西北医院正在记录着针灸被用治于急诊室的成功,针灸被用之于从车祸创伤、偏头痛到肾结石,他们希望去证实传统中医疗法的确可以减轻疼痛并减少医生们对成瘾性阿片类镇痛药的依赖。

2年前,明尼阿波利斯医院曾经是美国第一个把针灸师纳入急诊医师团队的医院,这作为一项广泛开展的运动旨在把东方治法融入西方主流医学。

本月在跟踪随访186名患者中发现,那些单纯使用针灸治疗的患者和那些使用镇痛药物的患者疼痛积分降低一样的水平。换句话说就是等效。


阿博特医院急诊主任Chris医生说:“证明针灸可能取代阿片类镇痛类药物将会很有意义,因为越来越多的证据指出阿片类镇痛药正在被滥用,其引起越来越多的镇痛药成瘾性及过量使用导致死亡的事件。

根据州死亡记录,明尼苏达州因药物过量导致的死亡升高了6倍,这种趋势与逐渐升高的处方镇痛药几率相关。

Proving acupuncture could sometimes replace opioids would be meaningful because there is growing evidence that the drugs are being overused and causing addictions and overdose deaths, said Dr.Chris Kapsner, the medical director of Abbott's Emergency Room.

Minnesota overdose deaths have risen sixfold, according to state death records, a trend that has corresponded with rising prescription rates.

Emergency Room Patients are choosing Acupuncture Instead of Painkillers at Minneapolis Hospital.



Last year there were 336 people died from the side-effect of the Painkiller pills in Minnesota 


Since the hospital using acupuncture for pain management in the ER, they have reduced 20% of the Opioids usage and also reduce the cost.

Note: Opioids are mainly used for moderate to severe pain treatment, such as cancer pain. Opioid analgesics include codeine, dihydrocodeine, hydromorphone, oxycodone, methadone, morphine, fentanyl, pethidine (meperidine) and tramadol and so on.


ABC News report the Acupuncture in the hospital ER(Emergency Room)

美国三大广播公司之一的ABC美国广播公司旗下的第五频道还有关于明尼苏达州急诊患者选择针灸替代镇痛药物。目前该医院阿片类药物减少20%,为医院节省了大量费用。

注:阿片类药物主要用于中到重度疼痛治疗,例如癌痛。阿片类镇痛药主要包括可待因、双氢可待因、氢吗啡酮、羟考酮、美沙酮、吗啡、芬太尼、哌替啶(度冷丁)和曲马多等。
