15 Hemoptysis and Spitting of Blood 咳血, 嗽血, 唾血, 咯血 해혈, 수혈, 타혈, 각혈

① Hemoptysis is when the patient coughs violently and bleeds at the same time. Its cause lies in the lungs. Use a Borneol and Artichoke Pill, Chicken and Perilla Powder [prescription is mentioned later], or Fantastic Persimmon Frost Paste.

② Cough with bloody sputum (嗽血) is when the patient coughs up bloody sputum. Its cause lies in the spleen. Use a Six Gentlemen Decoction with Mori Cortex (桑白皮), Scutellariae Radix (黃芩) (a thick one which inside breaks easily), Aruantii Fructus Immaturus (枳殼), and Schisandrae Fructus (五味子). If the patient has Fire, use Augmented Wander Free Powder. [The Six Gentlemen Decoction is mentioned in the chapter on Phlegm].

③ Spitting of blood is when there is fresh blood in the saliva. Its cause lies in the kidneys. Use a Decoction to Tonify yin and Direct Fire Downward. [The prescription is mentioned in the chapter on Fire]. If there is red blood in the saliva, this is due to lung atropy. It is difficult to cure.

④ Hemoptysis is when the patient spits blood out or when the patient cannot easily spit blood but only spits it out by force. Sometimes red blood like thin thread comes out. This is because the essence and blood are exhausted. Use a Four Substances Decoction with Bambusae Caulis in Liquamen, Zingiberis Rhizoma Crudus (生薑) juice, a child’s urine, and Indigo Pulverata Levis, or a Decoction to Tonify Yin and Direct Fire Downward, Preserve Life Rehmannia Powder [presciption is mentioned later], and Holy Pancake Pill.

⑤ If blood comes out before sputum, it is mostly caused by a yin deficiency with the stirring of Fire. This keeps phlegm from going down. Add Bulbus Fritillariae Cirrhosae (貝母) and Trichosanthis Radix to a Four Substances Decoction to resolve phlegm; add Gardeniae Fructus (梔子), Liriopis Tuber (麥門冬) and Moutan Cortex (牧丹皮) to subdue Fire. Expelling phlegm before vomiting blood is mostly because of accumulated heat caused by phlegm Fire. The phlegm Fire must be made to come down immediately, so use a Gardenia and Rehmannia Decoction.

⑥ If the patient expels phlegm and there is blood in his/her saliva, this is because heat in the entrance of stomach makes blood boil up and come out. If the symptom is serious, use Gardeniae Fructus (梔子); if it is mild, use Polygoni Tinctori Fructus (藍實).

⑦ If the patient vomits sputum before blood, this is because of accumulated heat; therefore, use a Clear Lungs Decoction. If the patient vomits blood before sputum, this is because of a yin deficiency; therefore, use a Decoction to Tonify Yin and Direct Fire Downward.

⑧ To treat hemoptysis or spitting of blood, use a Borneol and Artichoke Pill, Hejian’s Rehmannia Powder, Clear Fire and Nourish Yin Decoction, Clear Cough Decoction, Settle Cough Decoction, Clear Saliva Decoction, Water and Fire Paste [prescriptions are mentioned later], Fantastic Persimmon Frost and Snow Pear Paste, or Robe of Grace Powder.
