Coma refers to temporary loss of consciousness for a short period of time due to insufficiency of cerebral blood flow. Usually there is no sequela. However, rehabilitation is difficult to be obtained in some cases and death may be caused eventually. The clinical manifestations are sudden faint, unconsciousness and cold limbs. According to TCM, coma is caused by asthenia of qi and blood or disorder of yin and yang, adverse flow of qi, disconnection between nutrient qi and defensive qi as well as obstruction of the upper orifices due to wind, fire and phlegm.
