Acupuncture and Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea has become a common health issue in America. When people with sleep apnea go into a deep sleep, their upper airways are blocked completely, thus the oxygen level will drop to an alarming low level.

In Evd Based Complement alterat Med 2016, a review study investigated 6 randomized controlled clinical trials (RCT) for acupuncture and sleep apnea, which involve 362 patients. This review studies indicated that manual acupuncture can improve AHI, apnea index, hypopnea index, and the SaO2 (Saturation of Oxygen) when compared with the control group.
