Sthenia-syndrome of coma caused by pathogenic factors obstructing inside is manifested as clenched teeth, tight fist, loud voice, hoarse breath and forceful pulse, whereas collapse syndrome due to exhausted healthy qi manifests opening mouth, loose fist, low and weak breath, sweating and cold extremities, or feeble and faint pulse. They can only be suitable for sthenia-syndrome of coma and not for the collapse type of unconsciousness which should be treated through supplementing deficiency. Meanwhile, sthenia-syndrome of coma includes heat and cold type.
