MONTREAL (CP) Acu- puncture, used to treat illness and relieve pain in China for thousands of years, will be used commonly in Canadian hospi- tals to eliminate pain during surgery within the next few years, says the president of the Canadian Medical Association. Dr. Gustav who led a recent 16-member Canadian medical delegation to China, told a news conference yester- day Canadian doctors could learn acupuncture best by studying it in China. "It would take between three and six months in China for a Canadian anesthetist to learn the technical method of apply- ing Dr. Gingras said. "However, he would have to understand and speak Chinese. Since there are only about 10 or 15 qualified Chinese-sneaking anesthetists in Canada, it would be advisable to send over medi- cal teams with translators.' In China, acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of condi- tions and illnesses, including tu- mors, deafness, schizophrenia and epilepsy. It was first used as an anal- gesic during surgery in 1958, when a Chinese military physi- cian ran out of anesthesia and used acupuncture as a method of eliminating pain while he was extracting a tooth. REMAINS CONSCIOUS Acupuncture term is more correct than anes- thesia because the patient re- mains conscious during sur- the insertion into the skin of fine, stainles-steel needles. The needles are, usually in- serted only about one or two centimetres and then twirled to produce a numbing effect. Dr. Gingras, director of the Rehabilitation Institute of Mon- treal, said that in spite of a re- cent extensive research pro- gram, the Chinese themselves do not understand how acu- puncture works. Members of the Canadian medical team viewed its use in several operations including the removal of a brain tumor and partial removal of a stomach, "and there is absolutely no doubt that it works." Acupuncture analgesia is sometimes supplemented by the use of local anesthetics and is never used on children under the age of 16 or on mentally ill patients. It is most effective on surgery of the neck, head and upper ex- tremities and less effective on lower parts of the body. Dr. Gingras hopes that an ex- change of medical personnel can be arranged so that Cana- dian anesthetists can learn acu- puncture techniques in China and experienced Chinese acu- puncture teachers will accept research-teaching fellowships in Canada. RECEIVED TREATMENT Dr. Gingras said the tech- nique should initially be re- stricted to qualified anesthet- ists, but could be used in the near future by operating-room nurses, dentists and other health workers.

He had suffered a dislocated shoulder last year and received several acupuncture treatments while he was in China with the medical delegation. After the initial treatment, which was painless and lasted about three or four minutes, "the shoulder was pain free fcr the first time in over 15 months, although its effect lasted only a couple of hours." ''Subsequent treatments pro- vided additional relief for longer periods of time. Unfortu- nately, I had insufficient time to obtain the 15 to 20 treatments that were advised." He said the delegation, which toured msdical schools, hospi- tals and research institutions in four Chinese cities, was "some- what less impressed'1 with the use of acupuncture in the treat- ment of certain diseases and conditions than its use as an analgesic. CANNOT ASSESS "With respect to the treat- ment of children with con- genital or acquired deafness, we were simply unable to as- sess its effectiveness in the time available." He said the medical delega- tion received reports of positive results in the treatment of epi- lepsy, Bell's palsy and gastric and duodenal ulcers, adding that acupuncture has proven "extremely valuable" in the treatment of arthritis and other muscle and joint disorders. Dr. Gingras said the Cana- dian delegation was also im- pressed with Chinese advances in limb replantation and the treatment of severe burns. At the Sixth Shanghai Hospi- tal, where replantation tech- niques were developed, officials reported a 60-per-cent success rate in finger replantation and an 80-per-cent success rate in the replanting of severed limbs. "We saw several patients with replanted that were functioning extremely well. The techniques developed at this hospital are now being duplicated in many hospitals in major cities in China. LEAD WITH BURNS He said the Chinese success- fully replant limbs that have been separated from the body for up to 36 hours, While in Can- ada it is considered necessary to replant within six to eight hours to retain a functioning limb. Dr. Gingras considers the Chinese to be the world's lead- ing experts in the treatment of burns. "We examined patients who had survived burns covering 99 per cent of their bodies with over 94 per cent of the body having third-degree bums." The Chinese have established special burn units in major hos- pitals, which remove burned tis- sue surgically shortly after the patient is admitted to hospital and temporarily use human cadaver skin, or animal skin, in newly-developed skin graft tech- niques. Dr. Gingras also saad thai during its tour of medical faci- lities, the Canadian delegation saw "some things that were bad medicine." As far as the treatment of infections is concerned, we were not with certain cases of inner-ear infections and strep throat." Inquest ruled 'waste of lime' EDATONTON (CP) A cor- oner's jury deliberated only 11 minutes to return a verdict cf accidental death in an inquest described by Dr. M. M. Cantor, provincial coroner, as "a waste cf time." Dr. Cantor said the investiga- tion into the death of 45-year- old Elsie Danielson cf Edmon- ton in December, 1972, wasted taxpayers' money. "I judge it cost about to rent the court, pay off-duty policemen and pay the court re- porter." He said the evidence estab- lished by the three-hour inquest was known to him shortly after the woman died, but an anony- mous telephone call last month claimed she had been pushed under a train. The jury found that Mrs. DanielEon crawled under the train Dec. 17. She died in hos- pital of cardiac arrest Dec. 28.
