In clinical medicine no physical sign is more revealing than the Nadi Parkisa. The term "Nadi" has been used in several contexts in Ayurvedic classes but gradually this term has been restricted to the Nadi Parkisa i.e. radial pulse examination. Importance of Nadi Pariksa as a diagnostic measure in systemic diseases including cardio-vascular system, G.I.T. diseases (Udar Roga) and Manas Roga is described in Ayurvedic literature. In modern medical science the pulse examination has been given much stress but it is limited to only C.V.S. Nadi is the foremost among the Astasthana Pariksa described in medieval texts on Ayurveda as the main points of general examination of a patient. In Ayurveda Nadi Pariksa is described in Udar Roga and other Vyadhis also. The present paper describes the variations of Nadi in some importants Udar Roga.
