Abstract: Huangdi Neijing (Huangdi’s Internal Classic, hereinafter referred to as Neijing) not only laid the foundation of traditional Chinese medicine theories, but also recorded quite a few data about critical diseases. Neijing categorized and named critical diseases, and most of those diseases were named as Jue (syncope), bao (sudden onset), and cu (sudden death), which built a series of basic pathogenesis theories for TCM critical diseases. The statements of yin-yang relationship in Neijing illuminated the pathogenesis of critical disease to a large extent. Neijing explicitly recorded manifestations, diagnosis thinking pattern, treatment principles, and therapies of critical diseases. Neijing marks the establishment of TCM emergency system, and provides basic theories for TCM emergency.

Key words: Huangdi Neijing, critical diseases in emergency care, traditional Chinese medicine, discipline construction
