Both parameters demonstrate a significant difference after acupuncture treatment, indicating that scalp acupuncture facilitates the postoperative recovery of gastrointestinal functions. Morphine is a common opioid analgesic in the postoperative period. While effective, the downside is that the medication may cause nausea, vomiting, constipation, lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, increased sweating, and urinary retention. It may also cause respiratory depression and is contraindicated for patients with cardiopulmonary disease.  In addition, continued use or abuse of morphine can result in physical dependence and addiction.  According to a published NIH (National Institutes of Health) Consensus Conference statement, acupuncture is recommended as a treatment for pain management.  In the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine study, acupuncture increases the effectiveness of epidural morphine analgesia by improving VAS and BCS scores and facilitates the postoperative recovery of gastrointestinal function. The finding is not an isolated occurrence. In a previous study, researchers (Chen et al.) note, “The addition of acupuncture therapy to epidural morphine analgesia in a clinical setting can reduce the total dosage of morphine and correspondingly eliminate the medication-induced side effect rate.”  Researchers (He et al.) from the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine implemented the following study design.
