Combined use with LiequeLU7 (Lieque (LU7) Luo-Connecting Point the Eight Confluent Point) and ChizeLU5 (Chize (LU5) He-Sea Point) for treatment of tracheitis; with ShuifenCV9 (Shuifen (CV9)) and ZusanliST36 (Zusanli (ST 36) He-Sea Point) for treatment of hydrothorax; with XinshuBL15 ( Xinshu (BL15)), GanshuBL18 (Ganshu (BL 18)), JuqueCV14 (Juque (CV14) Front-Mu Point of the Heart) and JiuweiCV15 (Jiuwei (CV15) Luo-Connecting Point) for treatment of cough with bloody sputum.

Avoid puncturing the artery. Insert the needle perpendicularly 0.1-0.2 cun deep; needling response: local sensation of distension and soreness; moxibustion: using 3-5 moxa-cones, mild moxibustion for 15 min.
Don't puncture deeply, especially not toward medial and inferior side, or else the needle would penetrate the serratus anterior muscle-the external intercostal muscles-the internal intercostal muscles-the parietal pleura-the pleural cavity-the visceral pleura and the upper lobe of lung, injure the lung tissue and cause pneumatothorax.
