  20. Pathogenic Heat Yin Deficiency Stomach Heat channel grandchild Gums organ child Cystitis Ulcer Colitis Stomach Heat

  21. Stomach Food Stagnation Indigestible Food Overeating Retention of Food in Stomach Disturbed Qi Flow Failure to Transform & Transport

  22. Stomach Yin Deficiency Stress Liver Qi Stagnation Chronic Febrile Illness Transformation to Heat/Fire Impairment of Body Fluids Stomach Yin Deficiency

  23. How to Use Acupuncture for Gingivitis in Small Animal Practice Zang Fu Physiology • Teeth correspond to bone • Bone is controlled by the kidney • Malocclusion, oligodontia are examples of Kidney Jing Deficiency • Gums are influenced by the stomach

  48. Bleeding • Primary Hemostasis • Complex chain of events involving interaction of • Platelets • Vessel Wall • von Willebrand’s factor • Fibrinogen • Secondary Hemostasis • Complex interaction of the intrinsic and extrinsic clotting cascades • Stabilize the platelet plug

  49. Primary Hemostasis • Evaluated by the bleeding time • Platelet number • Amount and Quality of the von WIllebrand’s factor VIII:Ag • Fibrinogen concentration • Other alterations due to vessel wall disorders

  50. Secondary Hemostatis • Assessed by • ACT (activated clotting time) • APTT (activated partial thromboplastin time) • PT (prothrombin time)
