  • experimental and placebo Auriculotherapy for stressed nurses randomized controlled trial
    Revista Da Escola De Enfermagem Da Usp, 2018
    Co-Authors: Juliana Miyuki Do Prado, Leonice Fumiko Sato Kurebayashi, Maria Júlia Paes Da Silva

    Abstract:

    OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of experimental Auriculotherapy and placebo Auriculotherapy with sham points for the treatment of stress in nurses of a charity hospital in Sao Paulo. METHOD Randomized, single-blind, controlled trial. The sample consisted of 168 nurses with medium and high stress levels according to the List of Stress Symptoms (LSS). The participants were randomized to three groups: Auriculotherapy (G1), Placebo (G2) and Control (G3). Groups 1 and 2 received 12 sessions, twice a week. The points used in Group 1 were: Shenmen and Brainstem; in Group 2 the points were: External Ear and Face Area. The three groups were evaluated at baseline, after eight sessions, 12 sessions and in a follow-up (after 15 days). RESULTS Group 1 achieved a 43% reduction and a 1.81 Cohen d index (high effect), presenting statistical difference after eight sessions, maintained in the follow-up evaluation (p <0.001), according to Analysis of Variance. Group 2 achieved a 26% reduction, with Cohen's d index of 0.86 (great effect), achieving a difference after 12 sessions (p<0.001), maintained in the follow-up (p <0.05). The G3 did not present stress reduction. CONCLUSION Experimental Auriculotherapy achieved greater stress reduction among nurses, but there was no statistical difference between the two intervention groups.

    Revista Latino-americana De Enfermagem, 2014
    Co-Authors: Leonice Fumiko Sato Kurebayashi, Maria Júlia Paes Da Silva

    Abstract:

    Objective: this randomized single blind clinical study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of Auriculotherapy with and without a protocol for reducing stress levels among nursing staff. Method: a total of 175 nursing professionals with medium and high scores according to Vasconcelos’ Stress Symptoms List were divided into 3 groups: Control (58), Group with protocol (58), Group with no protocol (59). They were assessed at the baseline, after 12 sessions, and at the follow-up (30 days). Results: in the analysis of variance, statistically significant differences between the Control and Intervention groups were found in the two evaluations (p<0.05) with greater size of effect indices (Cohen) for the No protocol group. The Yang Liver 1 and 2, Kidney, Brain Stem and Shen Men were the points most used. Conclusion: individualized Auriculotherapy, with no protocol, could expand the scope of the technique for stress reduction compared with Auriculotherapy with a protocol. NCT: 01420835

    Co-Authors: Imaneh Khaki, Mahboubeh Valiani, Abolfazl Mohammadbeigi

    Abstract:

    Context: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine abnormalities in women. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of Auriculotherapy on the clinical manifestations of PCOS in single girls aged 18–35 years. Setting and Design: A single blinded parallel clinical trial. Materials and Methods: This study was performed on 60 single girls aged 18-35 years that randomly assigned into two groups including Auriculotherapy and medication. The clinical symptoms, hirsutism score, laboratory tests and ultrasound were measured and both groups were treated for two months. Statistical Analysis Used: The results were analyzed in three stages and analyzed by t-test, Chi square and repeated measurement tests. Results: A significant reduction was observed in hirsutism score in Auriculotherapy group (P = 0.04). There was a significant difference before and immediately after the intervention in Auriculotherapy group (P = 0.01). Hair loss immediately after the end of intervention was significantly lower in Auriculotherapy group (P = 0.04). There was a significant change in relative frequency of acne immediately after the intervention between two Auriculotherapy and medication groups (P = 0.01). Acne recovery in Auriculotherapy group was higher, and the relative frequency of acne was significantly different between the two groups after 3 months of intervention (P = 0.005). The irregularity of menstruation in Auriculotherapy group was reduced more compared with medication group (P = 0.02). The mean weight 3 months after the intervention was significantly different between two groups (P = 0.04). Conclusion: Auriculotherapy can play a role in reducing the symptoms of hirsutism, hair loss, and acne in single girls with PCOS, and even can control weight gain.

  • The effect of Auriculotherapy on the severity and duration of labor pain
    Journal of education and health promotion, 2018
    Co-Authors: Mahboubeh Valiani, Masoumeh Azimi, Zahra Mohebbi Dehnavi, Soheila Mohammadi, Masoume Pirhadi

    Abstract:

    INTRODUCTION: Pain is a common phenomenon and an inevitable part of the labor process. Labor pain is one of the most severe pains. Auriculotherapy is one of the nonpharmacological aspects of relieving pain, reduces the intensity of pain, and improves its compatibility. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of Auriculotherapy on labor pain in primiparous women. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This clinical trial was performed on 84 pregnant women aged between 18 and 35 years, who referred to Isfahan Shahid Beheshti Hospital in 2017. This study was carried out between two groups: control group (receiving routine hospital care) and interventional group (20 min for Auriculotherapy). We used the McGill Short-Form Standard questionnaire with Visual Analog Scale. Data were analyzed by SPSS software using paired t-test and ANOVA. RESULTS: The results showed that there was no significant difference between demographic variables in the two groups. Statistical analysis also showed that the severity of labor pain in the interventional group (Auriculotherapy) was lower than that of the control group (P = 0.001). CONCLUSION: Auriculotherapy reduces the severity of labor pain in primiparous women. Due to the easy, inexpensive, and noninvasive nature of this method, its use has been recommended in these cases.

  • The Effect of Auriculotherapy on the Stress and the Outcomes of Assistant Reproductive Technologies in Infertile Women.
    iranian journal of nursing and midwifery research, 2018
    Co-Authors: Mozhgan Saffari, Zahra Khashavi, Mahboubeh Valiani

    Abstract:

    Background: Infertility means failure to achieve pregnancy after one year of regular unprotected sexual intercourse. Infertile women may experience severe stress and depression. Numerous studies have indicated that Auriculotherapy could reduce stress. Thus, the aim of the present study was to determine the effect of Auriculotherapy on the stress and the outcome assisted reproductive technology in infertile women. Materials and Methods: The present study was a clinical trial that was conducted on 56 infertile women aged 20–45, who were assigned into two groups of intervention and control, from November 2014 to November 2015. The control group only received the routine treatments, while the intervention group, in addition to their routine treatment, received Auriculotherapy for 8–10 sessions during menstrual cycle. Both groups completed Newton’s Fertility Problem Inventory in three stages. The datasets collected for the study were analyzed using independent t ‑test, repeated‑measures analysis of variance, and Chi‑square test. Results: The mean score of stress in the intervention group decreased significantly, compared to the control group prior to the embryo transfer and pregnancy test stages. Although insignificant, the rate of pregnancy in the intervention group was higher than the control group. There was a significant increase in the rate of clinical pregnancy in the intervention group, compared to the control. Conclusions: The results indicated that Auriculotherapy might be effective in reducing stress and improving the outcome of assisted reproductive treatment.
