Introducing Pocket tcmDiag


Welcome to tcmDiag. This software will allow you to manage a database of over 50 common Traditional Chinese Medical Diagnosis / Zang-Fu Syndromes. There are over 19 8.5x11 pages of information packed into tcmDiag. You and Add, Delete, and Edit the the entire diagnosis database as you see fit.

For each diagnosis there are 9 separate sections or pages to help guide you to the information you need. There is a "General Signs and Symptoms" section, "Etiology / Disease Cause" section, "Western Diagnosis" section which lists similar western diseases that roughly correspond to the TCM diagnosis, "Differential Diagnosis" section to help you separate a particular diagnosis from others, "Treatment Principles" section to help guide your priorities of treatment, "Formulas" section which contains some representative Chinese Herbal formulas to threat the given diagnosis, "Points" section which lists representative points for the disorder, "My Notes" section where you can add specific information such as clinic notes, book notes, etc., "Picture" section where you can scan-in or import digital camera pictures such as a tongue picture that matches the disorder, facial diagnosis, pulse wave patterns, etc. It's up to you.

Once you have your database the way you want it, ONE click will export your database from the Included Desktop tcmDiag to a file ready to work with Pocket tcmDiag.

You will then have a complete reference at your fingertips including many powerful searching and retrieval features such as: Single Search, Quick Search List, List All, Smart Searching and a powerful Multi-Search tool.



  • Gen. S/S page: This page includes a drop down box listing all the Zang-Fu syndromes and also includes a comprehensive list of the Zang-Fu syndrome Signs and Symptoms, and Tongue and Pulse presentations

  • Etiology page: This page includes the various conditions, disorders or situations that can cause each particular syndrome

  • Western page: This page includes some common Western diagnosis that roughly correlate with the given Zang-Fu syndromes

  • Diff. Diag. page: This page will help aid you in differentiating a given Zang-Fu syndrome with other syndromes that have similar presentations

  • Treat. Prin. page: This page includes the common TCM treatment principles needed to resolve the Zang-Fu syndrome

  • Formulas page: This page includes the most common clinical formulas used to treat the syndrome

  • Points page: This page lists the most common and some not-so-common / special points used in treatments for each syndrome

  • My Notes page: This page is blank and allows you to have additional notes that will be associated with each syndrome

  • Picture page: This page will accommodate any .jpg picture you want associated with each syndrome.  Here you can include a representative tongue picture, facial diagnosis, pulse wave pattern or perhaps a picture of the ingredients of the most common treatment formula.  It's completely up to you how you use your picture page

  • <- AND ->: These buttons allow you to navigate the various pages like you would a web page with a web browser using the Back and Forward buttons

  • Results page: This page stores the results of your last search in a nice, organized, sorted list. One click of a syndrome takes you right to it! This list also allows you to compare and contrast different syndromes based on your searching criteria without having to re-run a search.

  • Single Search: This allows you to search for ANY text in your database. So, finding all the syndromes that, have "Dizziness" as a symptom, is a snap. tcmDiag will produce a "Results" list of all the Syndromes that contain your search term AND which page the search term was found on - then from there, a single click brings you right to that page. Fast and easy or what?

  • Quick Search List: This unique feature gives you the ability to store your frequently typed search terms. Then with two clicks, you can run the search again, all without re-typing which saves you a tremendous amount of time especially when you are with a patient

  • List All: This button provides you with a organized and sorted list of all the Syndromes in your database

  • Smart Searching: There is intelligence built into tcmDiag. For example, you are looking at the Western page and notice "Anemia" is listed. You want to find all the syndromes that have this western diagnosis, so what do you do? Easy, just use the stylus to highlight "Anemia" and click the Search button. Instantly you could have a list with several syndromes that share this diagnosis.  Give it a try!

  • Advanced Multi-Search:
    • Multi-Search allows you to run one search using up to 3 different keywords.  This is an "AND" search.  What is meant by this is that Search Term 1 AND Search Term 2 AND Search Term 3 should appear together.  This makes searching through your database very powerful.  Now you can search for such keywords as "Pale Tongue" AND "Dizziness" and your results will display records that contain both terms.
    • There are 2 options you have as well. 
      • Terms must appear on the SAME Page:  this means that out of the 8 pages (i.e. General s/s, Etiology, Western, etc.), your keywords must appear within the same page.  Your results will be returned according to which page your terms were found on - then a single click will take you right to that page.
      • Terms can be on ANY Page:  this means that the entire record (Zang-Fu syndrome) is searched for your keywords and then the results will be returned according to which record contains all of your keywords.  Ex.  you could search for "Pale" and "Anemia".  "Pale" would most likely be on a General S/S page (i.e. pale tongue) and "Anemia" would more than likely be on a Western page - so your results would return records like "Heart Blood Deficiency", "Heart Yin Deficiency", etc.

  • TcmDiag also incorporates Zap Power-Off, so you can either exit tcmDiag or Turn Off your device, all from the Menu. Saving a lot of wear-and-tear on your Power Button.
