Auricular acupuncture and related techniques are increasingly used as an adjuvant to other analgesic modalities in acute and chronic pain. Acupuncture is now accepted as a complementary analgesic treatment. Auricular acupuncture is a distinct form of acupuncture. Electrical stimulation of acupoints (electroacupuncture) increases the effects of acupuncture. Recently, an auricular electroacupuncture device, the P-Stim™, has become available. Clinical studies in outpatients have investigated the P-Stim in chronic musculoskeletal pain and its use for minor surgery. In chronic cervical or low back pain, auricular electroacupuncture was more effective than conventional auricular acupuncture. The results in acute pain were controversial. Auricular electroacupuncture reduced pain and remifentanil consumption during oocyte aspiration when compared with conventional auricular acupuncture or a sham treatment.Depending on the frequency of electrical stimulation, different neurotransmitters are released, including endorphins, endomorphins, dynorphins, nitric oxide and serotonin.The recently introduced P-Stim auricular EA device offers the advantage of a small size and the possibility to administer the therapy on an ambulatory basis, obviating the need for frequent clinic visits to receive treatments. There is no adverse effects in this treatment
