Id: NCT03711734

Organisation Name: Hospital for Special Surgery, New York

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: November 1, 2018

Last Update: July 9, 2020

Lead Sponsor: Hospital for Special Surgery, New York

Brief Summary: Acupuncture research in regards to PONV has been fairly well established, however, studies about perioperative pain control and acupuncture are a little more murky. In 2008, a meta analysis looked at randomized controlled studies and found that while acupuncture was shown to decrease pain, there were limitations including credible placebo or sham intervention, and thus, blinding. The main purpose of this feasibility trial is to determine whether or not adequate blinding is possible in the intraoperative setting with the patient sedated.
