Male Wistar rats were randomly divided into a burnt control group and a burnt-treating group. Burn injury was 25% TBSA, full skin thickness. The treating group received emitted qi from a qigong master, 30 minutes once a day during 14 day's postburn. The erythrocyte electrophoretic time (EET) was determined on day 0,1,3,7 and 21 postburn.
On day 1 postburn, the values of EET in both two groups were markedly higher than those of preburn, the values of EET of the treating group in preburn and on day 1 postburn were 15.04 and 18.50 respectively; while the values of EET of the control group in preburn and on day 1 postburn were 15.18 and 21.78 respectively. Both had significant difference (p<0.01). The results showed that the values of EET were higher in both the treating group and control after thermal injury (p<0.01), but on day 1 and 21 postburn EET of the treating group was faster than that of the control(p<0.05).
The thermal injury, following infection and some other factors made RBC accumulate more easily by decreasing RBC negative charge which interfered the microcirculation. It has been found that emitted qi can improve the body's immune ability, micro-circulation and kill bacteria. Combined with some other methods,emitted qi may have satisfactory results in treating burns
