Objective :
Blood-letting at Sybsun-points has been used for fever since ancient times in oriental medication. We were to evaluate the effectiveness of blood-letting at Sybsun-points on fever compared with aspirin, a representative antipyretic agent in modern western medicine.

Patients was selected who were admitted to Kyung-hee oriental medical center and developed fever over 38.0℃ during admission. Subjects were devided into 2 groups at random; aspirin 250mg injection group(n=11) and blood-letting at Sybsun-points group(n=10). Each group was allowed to massage with lukewarm water and not to change any medication during study. And then the body temperature was monitored at 2 hours and 8hours later.

As hours going by, all subjects temperature was lowering(P<0.001) and the antipyretic effect of the blood-letting group was not less than that of the aspirin injection group. After all, the blood-letting treatment could lower temperature about 0.7℃ after 2 hours and about 1.3℃ after 8 hours.

Blood-letting at Sybsun-points may be useful for fever.
Key words: antipyretic, Sybsun-points, blood-letting, aspirin
