Health Informatics -- Categorial structures for representation of acupuncture

This document aims to specify categorial structure in the field of cupping by defining a set of domain constraints for use within terminological resources. This document describes a concept system detailing the domain constraints of sanctioned characteristics, each composed of a semantic link and applicable characterizing categories.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

Introduction

Acupuncture therapy is widely practiced in Asia, and as a part of complementary and alternative

medicine treatments in western countries. Cupping is a therapeutic procedure using a vacuumized cup

or jar to apply negative pressure to certain points or areas of the body surface for treating diseases

through regulation of the functions of meridians/channels and visceral organs.

A guideline for reporting acupuncture intervention in clinical trials has already been provided and a

large number of clinical trials have been conducted to assess the efficacy and efficiency of acupuncture

therapy. However, the descriptions of cupping, as an acupuncture intervention in clinical reports tend

to be insufficient for the interpretation of heterogeneity among trials, often causing difficulties in

synthesizing data in meta-analysis. This arises from three reasons: firstly, an appropriate information

structure of cupping has not yet been formulated; secondly, the peculiar concepts within traditional

medicine in the western pacific-rim region originated in China and are not considered sufficient;

thirdly, semantic associations between concepts of cupping need to be explicit.

This document defines the categorial structures in the field of cupping in order to address these existing

problems.
The potential benefits of this document include

— supporting developers to provide new terminological resources concerning cupping,

— supporting developers to provide new detailed content areas of existing terminological resources

concerning the cupping process to ensure its conformance,

— facilitating the representation of the cupping process using a standardized core model in a manner

suitable for computer processing,

— providing a conceptual framework for the generation of a compositional concept representation of

cupping,

— facilitating the mapping and improved semantic correspondence between different terminological

resources by proposing a core specification for cupping and the means for determining conformance

to the specification;

— providing a core model to describe the structure of cupping, and facilitate improved semantic

correspondence with information models,

— providing a tool for cupping text mining, database construction, ancient document processing over

a wide area of acupuncture information collection and processing, and

— providing a new method for researchers to conduct relevant research, and ideas for the developmen
