Comparing Atlases of Tripple Energizer(三焦)
Jo, Hak-jun ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 28, issue 3, 2015, Pages 1~26
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2015.28.3.001
Objectives : An atlas of tripple energizer affords to make us understand what the ancients thought it shaped. Methods : All pictures of it were picked out from traditional east Asian medical books where the atlas of every organ had been inserted. To be sure what it shaped, they were classified according to shape. Results : Shang Han Lun Tiao Bian(傷寒論條辨) has been one of the 4 books that shows it in the entire atlas drawing all organs in traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese medical books. 14 books have a picture of it, while 18 books have an atlas of each organ except it. Since its multiple functions could not be expressed on a canvas at once, it had 6 different shapes, including the picture in Shang Han Lun Tiao Bian. Conclusions : Most of them were more representational or conceptualized than realistic, because ancient people had drawn it to inform the various functions, rather to show the actual feature. As anatomy went out into the east world, the more actually it was drawn, the further it was away from the own purpose.
A study on the Transmutation among Six-channels in Shanghanlun
Lee, Sang-Hyup ; Kim, Hoon ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 28, issue 3, 2015, Pages 27~43
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2015.28.3.027
Objectives : Zhang Zhong-jing's Shanghanlun is based on Six-channels system to classified a disease. This paper is planning to describe the Transmutation among Six-channels system. Six-channels change not fixed in either direction and each is relative to each other. Methods : I will try to describe the Transmutation among Six channels system, through the letter of the Shanghanlun. First, I will find letters related to a disease transmission. Second, It will be described through the analysis of the past medical scientists. Results : Six-Meridian Pattern is the categorization of syndromes according to the theory of the six meridians, applied to the diagnosis of acute febrile diseases at different stages, but also useful for the pattern syndrome differentiation of other diseases. Transmutation among Six channels system is not fixed in a certain order and it each affects one another. Conclusions : We can see that Zhong-jing's medical treatment from syndrome differentiation is associated with a Mutual transmission(相互傳變).

Results : Eumsunjungyo is a dietary cure book written by a doctor in the Yuan Dynasty. It suggested different ways of Yangsaeng according to specific patients and purposes, and explained the importance of food. Singnyochanyo is a dietary cure book written by a doctor in the Joseon Dynasty. It suggested ways to cure each of categorized diseases using foods.

Singnyochanyo written in 1460 is a kind of dietary cure book as well, but it categorized foods for each disease and revealed characteristics as an emergency care. However, Eumsunjungyo stressed health management through Yangsaeng and foods throughout the whole life.
A Study of Organ Weights in Nanjing(難經)
Kim, Sang-Un ; Jung, Hyun-Jong ;
Journal of Korean Medical classics, volume 28, issue 3, 2015, Pages 67~77
DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2015.28.3.067
Objectives : This study is to verify the organ weights in Nanjing based on the weights of five viscera (五臟) in autopsy studies of modern times. Methods : Contents on organ weights from many annotations and articles on Nanjing were collected. Organ weights in autopsy studies dealt in many countries including China, India, U.S. and Korea were collected. Among the data, the average weights of liver, heart, spleen, pancreas, lung and kidney of males in the age of 18 to 60 were calculated, and the ratio of each organ was examined. Based on those results, the organ weights of Nanjing were evaluated. Results & Conclusions : There is a close correspondence between the organ weight ratios of liver(肝), heart(心), lung(肺) and kidney(腎) in Nanjing and those in autopsy studies. It proves that the organ weights in Nanjing were recorded based on an actual dissection. As a result of the analysis on autopsy studies, the average organ weights and the ratio among the organs were: liver 1416g(43.0%), heart 296g(9.0%), lung 1047g(31.8%), kidney 273g(8.3%), spleen 264g(4.5%) and pancrease 113g(3.4%). The weight of liver in Nanjing shall be 4 jin and 4 liang(4斤4兩) instead of 2 jin and 4 liang(2斤4兩) to occupy proper proportion out of other organs. It is highly possible that the weight of spleen(脾) in Nanjing is including the weight of pancrease(散膏), and the weight shall be 1 jin and 1 liang(1斤1兩) or 1 jin and 2 liang(1斤2兩) instead of 2 jin and 3 liang(2斤3兩) to occupy proper proportion out of other organs.

DOI : 10.14369/skmc.2015.28.3.107
Objectives : The purpose of this study is to identify Yangsaeng level and pattern identification of subfertility in childbearing aged women according to the pregnancy experience. Methods : Data was collected by structured questionnaire distributed to 217 women(125 women experienced pregnancy, 92 subfertile women) in I city from Nov. to Dec. 2014. For data analysis, Chi-square test, Fisher's exact test, t-test and Pearson's correlation coefficients were performed using SPSS version 19.0. Results : Drinking rate and stress level of subfertile group were higher than pregnancy experience group. Subfertile women group have more disease related to reproductive system, irregularities of the menstrual cycle and dysmenorrhea than pregnancy experience group. Subfertile women showed lower scores for Yangsaeng level but higher scores for all types of pattern identification of subfertility more than those in the women experiencing pregnancy. Conclusions : The results of this study indicate that reproductive health program for the childbearing aged women is necessary before serviced by western or oriental medical treatment for subinfertile(infertile) women. These results can be used for a program based on oriental medicine in order to improve women's health.
