4 Abdominal Pain o Today s class will focus on some common TCM patterns of Abdominal Pain, to build the skills necessary in the interview,when asking about this condition in Student Clinic. o This topic will be revisited and covered comprehensively in later CMAC classes o This is a large topic and so the focus will be on developing palpatory and interrogatory skills for the preclinical student Endeavour College of Natural Health 4

5 Observation of the Abdomen o You will be hearing many of these terms as you progress through the course. Lets review. Palpate these areas if you want to. The abdomen is considered to reflect the status of the Sp/St(post natal qi) while the lower abdomen is ruled by the Ki( pre natal qi) o What is the xiphoid process and where is it? o What is the epigastrium and where is it? o What is the hypochondrium and where is it? o What is the umbilicus and where is it? o What is the central lower abdomen and where is it? o What is the lateral lower abdomen and where is it? o What is meant by RLQ? RUQ, LLQ, LUQ? Endeavour College of Natural Health 5
