Effects of Transcutaneous Acupoint Electrical Stimulation on Postoperative HRV and Hs-cTnT of Elderly With CHD

General anesthesia can inhibit sympathetic nerve activity and attenuate stress response, but it also inhibits vagus nerve activity. The decrease of vagus nerve activity can cause cardiovascular complications, especially ventricular arrhythmia in patients with coronary heart disease. Some study have shown that electrical stimulation of transcutaneous acupoints can regulate the ...
