Abstract

This paper analyzes information on Augmented Widen the Core Powder (加味普正散) (AWCP) in the Dr. Kim Young Hoon's medical record database, Cheongang Medical Records. AWCP is a prescription that is not found in the existing medical texts, yet is referred to in Dr. Kim Young Hoon's medical record database. By examining these records, this study shows that the original prescription for AWCP was Decoction for Rectifying the Qi with Cyperus and Kudzu (香葛正氣飮) and that this prescription was deeply related to Rectify the Qi Powder Worth More Than Gold (不換金正氣散) as well as Cyperus and Kudzu Decoction (香葛飮). In addition, AWCP had several names over a long period of time, and its name changed from the Powder of Relieving Lives and Rectifying the Qi (普救正氣散) to AWCP. In particular, this study shows that the term 'gami' (加味 augmented) indicates a change in prescription name, not a change in the composition of the prescription.
