This is the first volume of the clinical handbook a 3-volume TCM clinical formulary. It covers lung, kidney, liver and heart patterns. Within each organ pattern section, pathologies are organized by established TCM patterns within biomedical categories. Historically established patterns from the Shang Han Lun and Wen Bing are included in the lung section. These sections are supplemented by appendices listing original unmodified formulas, processing methods, delivery methods, contraindications for pregnancy, incompatible and antagonistic combinations, toxic substances, and medicinals derived from endangered species and animals. The 40-page index lists biomedical diseases and symptoms. TCM patterns are listed according to the same biomedical categories by which the clinical handbook is organized. Formulas and medicinals are listed in both Pinyin and English with the main reference noted in bold. This work is arranged to provide easy access to the clinical information needed to treat a patient. Each of the patterns is detailed as to pathophysiology, clinical features (symptoms, pulse and tongue), treatment principle, prescription, modifications, patent medicines, applicable acupuncture points and clinical notes. The clinical handbook is one of the most recommended books for TCM therapists.
