Objectives: Coughs are among the most common symptoms seen during clinical practice. For the purpose of seeking a better treatment methodology for treating syndromes involving cough, the theory of Six Channels Syndrome Differentiation Pattern is studied and applied. Method: This study will review the Six Channels Syndrome Differentiation Pattern, first introduced by Zhang ZhongJing in his classical work Shang Han Lun of the Han Dynasty. Before dissecting the core theories of Shang Han Lun, other theories that form the backbone of the Six Channels Syndrome Differentiation Pattern will be analyzed, such as the Yin Yang Theory, the five elements theory, the three yins and three yangs theory, as well as the five cycles and six qi theory. After that, each of the six channels are discussed and appropriate case examples of syndromes involving cough will be included. Outcome: syndromes involving cough can generally be categorized into the six channel diseases, where they may occur independently or subsequently. The Six Channel Syndrome Differentiation Pattern collects the many symptoms experienced by the patient and categorize them into the various syndromes in the six channels diseases. From the syndromes, an appropriate treatment principle and prescription formula can be administered for the betterment of the patient’s condition. Various diseases will also involve more than one channel. Conclusion: It is important to perform a through syndrome differentiation in order to treat syndromes involving cough and relieve the coughing from the patient. By capturing the symptoms listed in the general outline of each channel, as well as the nature of the disease, an appropriate treatment formula can be prescribed for maximum efficacy.
