Objectives: We examined the effects of Sinbi-tang on a patient with pontine hemorrhage and respiratory disturbance. Methods: A patient diagnosed with pontine hemorrhage and respiratory disturbance was treated with herbal medicine and acupuncture. We checked the peripheral oxygen saturation ($SpO^2$) by oximetry three times a day, and obtained an average value. We evaluated the improvement of symptoms by changes in the average applied $O^2$ and average $SpO^2$. Results: After taking Sinbi-tang and treatment with acupuncture therapy, the patient showed improvement in respiratory disturbance. Applied $O^2$ was gradually decreased from 4 L/min to 0 L/min and $SpO^2$ was stabilized. Conclusions: Korean medicine may provide effective treatment for respiratory disturbance in patients with pontine hemorrhage, but further study is needed.
