linear guide of the axillary arterydraw/visualize a line in the center of the axillary space along the lateral border of the base of the axillary space
memorize

Section 2

Question Answer
anatomical limit for the brachial arteryextends from the inferior border of the teres major muscle... ends 1 inch below the antecubital fossa
anatomical guide for the brachial arterylies in the bicipital groove at the posterior margin of the medial border of the biceps brachii muscle
linear guide of the brachial arterydraw/visualize point over the center of the lateral border of the base of the axillary space to 1 inch below and in front of the elbow joint
