Objective: To investigate the effect of the application TEAS (Transcutaneous acupoint electric stimulation) on the women been used oxytocin for labor pain at latentphase.Methods: Nul1iparous women were recruited and allocated into experimental group(n=61) and control group(n=60). The technique TEAS was applied to the TEAS groups at the points of Jiaji (T10-13)and Ciliao (BL 32). The VAS (Visual analogue scale) was used to assess the abdominal pain and low back pain during latent phase of labor before and 30mins, 60min, 120minand cervical dilatation2 to3cm after intervention. In order to observed the change of the score to evaluate the effect of the TEAS. The secondary outcomes of this study contains the operative delivery rate, duration of active phase, duration of second stage of labor, duration of third stage of labor, postpartum hemorrhage, maternal side effects, neonatal Apgar score at 1 and 5 min, neonatal arterial blood gas test values, level of β-EP, maternal satisfaction scores, cumulative consumption, the times of PCA.Results: After30 mins 60min,120min our intervention, the mean VAS scores of TEAS group about abdominal pain were significantly decreased compared with the control group (P<0.05), respectively. After30 mins 60min,120minintervention and the point of cervical dilatation2 to3cm, the mean low back pain scores of TEAS group were significantly decreased compared with the control group (P<0.05), respectively. The maternal satisfaction scores of the TEAS group were significantly compared with the control group (P<0.05) The β-EP level of TEAS group after 60min ,120min intervention was higher than the control group (P<0.05). No statistically significant differences in amount of duration the stage of labor, maternal side effects, maternal satisfaction scores, cumulative consumption and the times of PCA, neonatal Apgar score at 1 and 5 min,and umbilical venous blood gas test values.Conclusions: This study showed that TEAS applied in latent phase can reduce labor pain and the low back pain. It has no significant effect on the progress of labor and has no side effect on mother and the newborn.
