Department of Clinical Research of Korean Medicine
This department was founded in order to provide eastern and western joint medical practices for both inpatients and outpatients. We take charge of Oriental medical ICU and Oriental medical ER, and we help with western medical treatment when managing inpatients and outpatients of hospital of Oriental medicine.
While some patients have chronic degenerative diseases, others are in the early stage of stroke or are accompanied by complications. Patients with these cases require intensive care, and therefore receive both eastern and western treatment at Oriental medical ICU. Patients can receive treatment and care from both western medical specialists and Oriental medical doctors, as well as western medical treatment(tracheal intubation, percutaneous central venous trophotherapy, tracheostomy, rachicentesis, thoracic ductus intubation, artificial respir ation using medical instruments and etc.) and intensive care(24h electrocardiograph, body positioning and etc.). Thus, compared with those who only receive western treatment at western ICU, patients at Oriental medical ICU can benefit from overall health recovery and decrease in complication death rate by receiving Oriental medicinal and acupuncture treatment.
If one faints all of a sudden or patients occur in the middle of the night, patients come to Oriental medical ER. When patients are sent to ER, we first understand the state of the patient and decide whether his/her state is urgent and which department he/she should go to. If patients are in fairly good condition, they get first aid and are informed about which department to go. On the other hand, if patients are in critical condition or are expected to carry on with their diseases, they are hospitalized at each medical department or Oriental medical ICU. One may receive emergency examination or tracheal intubation if needed.
If emergency occurs while one is being treated in general ward, we quickly carry out CPR(cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and tracheal intubation and if the situation calls for it, move him/her to Oriental medical ICU so he/she can be taken care of intensively.

1) Researches on efficient model of east-west joint medical practices
Due to dualistic medical system of Korea, patients are forced to choose one of the two medical systems(Oriental medicine/Western medicine) or deal with time and economic loss by choosing both. The department of East-West joint practice thereupon proposes a joint practice model that can reduce time and economic loss of patients and enhance the effectiveness of treatment by assigning both Oriental and western medical doctors to one patient.

2) Researches on Malum Senile through east-west joint medical practices
As society develops and mean life span extends, diseases that are not shown in early ages and are frequent in old population are increasing in frequency, which has led to a high interest in malum senile. This department anticipates a high-quality treatment on malum senile by researching Oriental medicine which has its strong points in chronic degenerative diseases or strengthening immunity and western therapies suitable for various complications.

3) Researches on the treatment of incurable diseases through east-west joint medical practices
Despite great developments in science and medicine, there remain diseases that are yet to be conquered or newly found diseases. Although up-to-date medical technologies such as surgical operations and organ transplants continue to develop, domains that cannot be solved with scientific examination and treatment clearly exist. Meanwhile, it is true that Oriental medicine lacks eye-opening cures for patients with excruciating pain who are in their terminal stage of diseases or for temperamental problems. This department thereupon researches and tries new approaches toward incurable diseases by complementing weaknesses of both Oriental and western medicine and maximizing strong points.
