3-minute Chinese Medicine study---pulse diagnosis 30/3/2018

Pulse diagnosis is a diagnostic technique used in traditional Chinese,The main sites for pulse assessment are the radial arteries in the left and right wrists, where it overlays the styloid process of the radius, between the wrist crease and extending proximal, approximately 5 cm in length (or 1.9 cun, where the forearm is 12 cun). In traditional Chinese medicine, the pulse is divided into three positions on each wrist. The first pulse closest to the wrist is the cun (inch, 寸) position, the second guan (gate, 關), and the third pulse position furthest away from the wrist is the chi (foot, 尺).

脉诊是通过按触人体不同部位的脉搏,以体察脉象变化的切诊方法。又称切脉、诊脉、按脉、持脉。脉象的形成与脏腑气血密切相关,若脏腑气血发生病变,血脉运行就会受到影响,脉象就有变化。
