Arrhythmias and Heart Failure- Condition Resources

Important to know: Chronic health conditions should be addressed under direct medical supervision of your GP or consultant, and acupuncture would be an adjunct or complement to usual care – we advise that you let you doctor know when you use this approach.

The British Acupuncture Council (BAcC) has produced an evidence based factsheet about arrhythmia and heart failure including specific research, trials and mechanisms of action for acupuncture in this condition, we recommend taking a look via the underlined link above.

About the research: When reading the BAcC factsheet, and looking at the research evidence available it is worth noting that in research, randomised controlled studies (RCT) are the most reliable in terms of quality of evidence, with a systematic review or meta analysis of numerous studies being the best way of seeing the overall picture of the state of the evidence. The n= figure tells you how many people were participants in the study.
