Objective: To explore the effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation in treatment of acute cerebral infarction with dysphagia and psychological disorder. Methods: 78 cases of patients with acute cerebral infarction with dysphagia and psychological disorder were selected and randomly divided into two groups. Control group were treated with conventional drug treatment and swallowing training whileneuromuscular electrical stimulation was used to additionally treat the experimental group. Profile of Mood States (Poms) and Robson self-esteem questionnaire (RSEQ-30) scores were used to evaluate the effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation in the two groups before and after treatment. Results: In control group, both Poms and RSEQ-30 scores were not significant different before treatment. In experimental group, Poms and RSEQ-30 scores were significantly lower and higher than before treatment (P < 0.05), respectively. Similarly, after treatment, Poms and RSEQ-30 scores in the experimental group were significantly lower and higher than control group (P < 0.05), respectively. Conclusion: Neuromuscular electrical stimulation in treatment of acute cerebral infarction with dysphagia and psychological disorder could eliminate the patient's psychological barriers and improve their quality of life.
