With the anterior suface of the forearm across the chest, X-6 lies on the posterior radial surface of the arm in between the muscles of extensor pollicus longus and abductor pollicis longus 3 ACI from the wrist flexure.
Look for a groove in the bone.
On the crease of the flexure of the wrist, on the proximal radial side of the pisiform bone, upon the ulnar artery. The artery lies in the groove between the tendons of flexor carpi ulnaris and flexor digitorum superficialis. Draw a box around the pisiform.
On the back, 2.5 ACI lateral to the median line, at the level of the depression between L2 and L3
On the back, 2 ACI lateral to the median line, at a level formed by the depression of the spinous processes of T3 and T4
Rich for the Vitals
On the back, 4 ACI lateral to the median line at a level formed by the depression of the spinous processes T4 and T5.
Gate of Life
On the posterior median line, in the depression between L2 and L3.
On the posteromedial surface of the forearm, 1 ACI distal to the hollow between the medial epicondyle of the humerus and the olecranon when the forearm is semi-fllexed.
HOW and then triangle. Look for hollow.
On the anterior line, 8 ACI superior to the umbilicus, at the xiphisternal joint.
On the anterior median line, 4 ACI superior to the umbilicus.
On the abdomen, 3 ACI lateral to the median line, at the level of the centre of the umbilicus, on the lateral edge of the rectus abdominus.
