Chronic gastritis is a disease that occurs in one in every 10 persons in Korea. Endoscopic examination is needed to diagnose chronic gastritis in western medicine, but it causes patients pain, long period of examinations and financial burden. In KM (Korean Medicine), on the other hand, it can be known whether stomach is abnormal or not through a pulse diagnosis. The Guan position of the right wrist is related to a stomach in KM. Thus, the pulse wave of the right-hand Guan of patients with chronic gastritis and the healthy were measured. Then, the diagnostic parameter and features to distinguish between the patients with chronic gastritis and the healthy were discovered. Through P-H curve, consequently, it can be concluded that the pulse waves of patients with chronic gastritis appear as a floating pulse, whereas the pulse waves of the healthy appear as a normal pulse.
