Background: Sick sinus syndrome (SSS), in terms of diagnosis and treatment, is one of the most difficult problems associated with irregular heart rhythm. Until now, there is no unified generally accepted theory explaining its pathogenesis, there are no unambiguous criteria for making a diagnosis. In this regard, it is interesting to consider this disease from the point of view of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) based on the results of assessing the bioenergetics of such patients using the Akabane test. Methods/Design: On the basis of the cardiac surgery department of a multidisciplinary hospital, 107 patients with a verified diagnosis of SSS and receiving only medication were examined. Of these, there were 64 men and 43 women. In total, 245 tests of Akabane were carried out, including in the dynamics of observation. Results: according to this test, with tachy and brady syndrome, as well as with normosystole, these patients showed general patterns at the level of acupuncture canals (AC), which consisted in an increase in asymmetry at the level of their left and right branches, while in the norm of this asymmetry was not. In addition, the opposite dominance of the left and right branches of the AC was revealed in tachy and brady syndrome. The analysis of these dependencies from the point of view of TCM is carried out. The possibility of predicting the time and nature of arrhythmias based on the assessment of biorhythms of certain AC is shown. Conclusion: Alternative concepts of the pathogenesis of this disease are shown. The use of the Akabane test for patients with SSS allows them to be effectively monitored based on new physical principles, which is much easier and more convenient compared to traditional methods.
