Abstract

The relationship between acute life stress and the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) has been noted in the literature. However, the use of integrative medicine (IM) in restoring cardiac rhythm has not been adequately studied. This case report describes how an IM approach was used in a patient with atrial fibrillation and acute pain. Spontaneous cardioversion to normal sinus rhythm occurred during the IM session, in addition to marked decreases in self-reported pain, anxiety, and nausea at the conclusion of IM treatment. These results provide initial support that for some cases of AF, IM therapies can help to reduce costs via avoidance of additional hospitalization, electrocardioversion, and general anesthesia. 文件指出沉重生活压力与出现心 房颤动 (atrial fibrillation, AF) 之间的关联。但尚未对使用 综合医学 (integrative medicine, IM) 恢复心律这一课题作出 充分研究。该案例报告说明综合 医学 (IM) 方法如何用于出现心房 颤动和剧痛的患者。在综合医学 (IM) 疗程期间,患者自动恢复至 正常窦性心律,此外在综合医学 (IM) 治疗结束时,主诉疼痛、紧 张和恶心的情况明显减少。 Se ha citado en la literatura una relación entre el estrés agudo vital y el desarrollo de fibrilación auricular (atrial fibrillation, AF). Sin embargo, el uso de la medicina integrativa (integrative medicine, IM) para restablecer el ritmo cardiaco no se ha estudiado adecuadamente. El informe de este caso describe cómo se usó un enfoque de IM en una paciente con fibrilación auricular y dolor agudo. Se produjo una cardioversión espontánea a un ritmo sinusal normal durante la sesión de IM, además de una reducción marcada del dolor, la ansiedad y las náuseas notificados por la paciente al finalizar el tratamiento de la IM.
