There is a depression of the skin over the
cavity. The shoulder is flattened. The bone of the arm points to where the

head of the bone is.

Treatment. Carry the elbow to the side with the forearm at right angles

to the arm: turn the arm around until the forearm points away from the

body. Then carry the arm up from the body until it is level with the

shoulder. In this position gradually rotate the arm again and then bring

the arm to the side, with the forearm across the chest, hand pointing to

the other shoulder when it should be bandaged by pieces of bandages three

inches wide passing around the arm, elbow and body. A pad should be placed

under the hand to keep it from making the flesh sore.
