The purpose of this guide is to describe how to use CDISC standards to represent data pertaining to traditional (manual) acupuncture studies. Version 1.0 primarily focuses on “common” acupuncture device related concepts, such as acupuncture study design elements, acupuncture device information, device (treatment) exposure, device events, and common adverse events collected that are related to acupuncture administration and needle events, and provides advice and examples for representing the data using the Study Data Tabulation Model (SDTM).
