Page 4B NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Kla., Friday* June 28, 1914 Pain Relief Tested GAINESVILLE - Acupuncture, as a surgical anesthetic, Is being Investigated experimentally in the People's Republic of China, says a University of Florida anesthesiologist who toured Chinese medical facilities for 22 days. Dr. Jerome H. Modell, professor and chairman of anesthesiology in the University's College of Medicine, explains that "while the Chinese have employed acupuncture In treatment of diseases for thousands of years, acupuncture anesthesia Is quite new in their experience. "We were told that the first case of acupuncture anesthesia was performed in China in 1958," he said, "but it was not until 1966 they began intensively exploring the potential of acupuncture as a surgical anesthetic." Dr. Modell was part of a 12-member study group of American scientists who toured Peking, Shanghai and Canton under sponsorship of the National Academy of Sciences' Committee on Scholarly Communication With the People's Republic of China. While in the Republic, they were guests of the Chinese Medical Association. The team Is reported to be the first group of trained observers from the United States specifically to study acupuncture anesthesia in China in an effort to determine the state of the art. A composite of their observations, now being prepared, is to be published in American scientific journals. Hosted by Chinese physicians whom Dr. Modell described as "friendly, gracious and candid in their communication regarding medical science," the study group observed 48 surgical procedures under acupuncture anesthesia. Procedures Included tooth extractions, tonsillectomy, eye surgery, removal of brain tumors, abdominal hysterectomy, ovarian cyst removal, and open heart surgery. The settings were varied: commune hospitals, county hospitals, general medical hospitals, medical schools and research institutes. "There were some patients who — had they been the only patients I observed — would have impressed me as great successes of acupuncture anesthesia," says Dr. Modell. "There were other patients I would have classified as failures, in the sense that acupuncture was not sufficient to relieve them of moderate to severe pain during surgery. In that regard, he notes, "The Chinese physicians whole-heartedly agree. They made it clear to us that acupuncture anesthesia is experimental and therefore is not performed in all patients or for all types of surgery." In a summary prepared by the study group immediately before returning to the States, several key observations are noted: .... The Chinese physicians select patients for acupuncture anesthesia screening out those of nervous, highly emotional or fearful disposition. The patient must state that he wants acupuncture used as an anesthetic technique. .... Acupuncture is not used in cases where complicated surgery is anticipated. It is employed only In cases where the physician has a precise diagnosis and foresees no exceptional difficulties or complications during surgery. It is rarely done in children under 12. .... Patients are counseled prior to surgery by the anesthesiologist and surgeon and by other patients who have undergone similar surgery under acupuncture. They are usually advised that acupunc- ! ture anesthesia will permit them to reco vier from surgery rapidly and to get back on their feet faster — without the "hangover" or side effects of anesthetic drugs. .... For patients undergoing thoracic and heart surgery, there is a one-week training session in which they are instructed how to breathe with an open chest.
