Abstract

It is a still a world-wide challenge that hypertensive patients maintain a satisfactory blood pressure control. In TCM practice, traditional physical therapy has shown beneficial to blood pressure (BP) controlling. As the amount of bio medical data in leading databases (i.e. SinoMed, etc.) is growing at an exponential rate, it might be possible to get something meaningful through the techniques developed in data mining. In this paper, focused on hypertension, we proposed an algorithm named two dimensions data slicing to mine rules of Chinese medicinal physical therapies (massage, cupping and so on). The process of mining was done in two dimensions. The one-dimension analyzes the frequencies. The two-dimension analyzes the frequencies of co-existed keyword pairs. By examining the results of these two dimensions, although some noises existed, most regular knowledge of this disease is mined out. This algorithm might be useful in mining rules in the literature of traditional Chinese medicine.
