In this randomised controlled trial (RCT), we compared the incidence of N&V and rescue antiemetic medication used during CS under CSE in three groups of women, including those who received transcutaneous P6 acupoint
stimulation, intravenous (IV) metoclopramide and ondansetron and no prophylactic antiemetic treatment or P6 stimulation.
It was observed that a temperature greater or at 43 degrees Celsius at the surface of the skin at acupoint
ST36 decreased gastric distention induced reflex increases in blood pressure.

Stainless steel needles (0.16 mm diameter) were inserted bilaterally in the ST36 acupoint
, which was located in the anterolateral portion of the hindlimb, in the middle of the cranial tibial muscle, 5 mm below the capitulum fibulae, 7 mm deep from the skin surface, and is innervated by the deep fibular nerve .
 As GV20 acupoint
and acupressure was given at the similar points the result corroborated with above study.
However, once AP excites afferent nerve fibers deep in the acupoint
area, the pain threshold value will be increased.
Using a random data table, the remaining 40 patients were divided equally into the ischemia-reperfusion group (I/R group) and the transcutaneous electrical acupoint
stimulation group (TEAS group).
An increasing number of studies have also focused specifically on different acupoints
and the mechanism underlying the protective effects of EA against cerebral ischemia ; for example, the Zusanli acupoint
has been widely discussed .
