The organ-meridian relationship is investigated. The acupuncture and meridian system of traditional Chinese medicine is an important, real biophysical aspect of the living body. With the electrodermal screening device (EDSD), it is possible to define, both quantitatively and qualitatively, much of the meridian system. The meridian system is essential to most or possibly all bodily functions. The EDSD, which reads meridian information, is capable of delivering valuable information on nearly every facet of body function. The EDST could serve as the standard “ruler” by which biological energy is measured, similar to body temperature and blood pressure. In other words, it is conceivable that someday the EDSD will be as commonplace as the thermometer and sphygmomanometer. The EDSD is non-invasive and economical. With its further refinement and acceptance, along with that of the associated testing methodology (EDST) and health management system (EDSS), it may be possible to chart even the higher functions, including emotional, cognitive, and psychosomatic. The EDST has the potential of developing into a truly complete test of the body, making possible levels of international medical standardization and meta-analysis unknown today. The device, test, and system may prove to be the greatest set of tools against disease created this century. But now what is needed is much more research. It is the authors' sincere hope that many others in the medical-scientific community will see the EDST's potential and initiate further research projects
