Researchers from the AJA University of Medical Sciences and Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran have found that acupuncture could be considered as an option in prevention of postoperative anaesthesia-related sore throat.

The research, published in the journal Acupuncture Medicine undertook a non-randomised clinical study in a tertiary care hospital in Tehran, on 228 consecutive patients undergoing elective surgeries under general anaesthesia.

Half were assigned to an acupuncture group and half to the control group.

Those treated with acupuncture were treated at the PC6 point and both groups checked over a 24-hour period.

Amongst those treated with acupuncture, 14% suffered post operative sore throat – whilst 29.8% of those in the control group suffered one.
