    Systematic Review into Acupuncture adverse events

    Acupuncture Related Adverse-Events- a Summary of the Review and Findings

    Published on September 22 2021

    Bäumler et al. (2021) Acupuncture Related Adverse-Events- a Summary of the Review and Findings  

     

    The systematic review and meta-analysis by Bäumler et al. (2021) explored prospective studies looking at acupuncture-related adverse events (AEs). The article was recently published in the BMJ-Open. The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence and severity of AEs related to manual and/or electro-acupuncture with or without the use of moxibustion therapy. The types of AEs were differentiated between AEs and severe AEs (SAEs). The authors created a search strategy and searched for 3 databases (Pubmed, Scopus, and Embase) to identify appropriate literature.
