Detailed Description
Stroke is a major cause of death and disability. According to the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Taiwan, stroke accounted for 6.8% of all deaths and was the 4th leading cause of death in Taiwan in 2020. Stroke can be divided into acute, subacute, and chronic stages, and the initial severity of stroke affects recovery from sequelae. Therefore, how to effectively improve the sequelae and accelerate the recovery of patients through early interventions is an important issue. This study aimed to investigate the effect of early acupuncture treatment in the acute stage of hemorrhagic stroke. Subjects will be divided into two main groups by random assignment. The intervention group will be treated with traditional acupuncture, while the control group will be treated with pseudo-acupuncture(superficial acupuncture). The treatment frequency was 3 times a week for at least one week. Consciousness, neurological status and disability status were assessed before treatment, at the end of the first week, the second week and the third week, and biomarker were examined before and after treatment
