Acupuncture for Emergencies
Acupuncture is one of the therapies in Chinese medicine. It has been used for thousands of years for the treatment of various diseases. It is getting known by people in Western countries that it is useful for chronic diseases, such as chronic arthritis, migraine, diarrhea, but it can actually also be used for the treatment of many severe and emergent conditions, such as shock, coma, heavy bleeding, stroke, drowning, CO toxic, etc. Though the conventional medicine is good at saving life in emergency room, but it cannot prevent a later terrible trouble, such as a persistent vegetative status of the survivor, and it needs complex equipments to work. We believe that the combination of the conventional and the traditional ways would work better to solve emergency conditions faster and more efficient. This book intends to give an introduction for how acupuncture is used in these emergency conditions.
Dr. Martin Wang has been a doctor in both conventional medicine and traditional Chinese medicine since 1982. He earned a PhD in medicine in Sweden in 1996. His rich clinical experience has led him to believe that Chinese medicine is worth exploring and practicing, even with all the advancements in conventional medicine. He has found that many acute and chronic diseases can be treated or even cured with Chinese medicine—without any unwanted side effects. He currently practices acupuncture and herbal therapy in his clinic in Canada.
