A. On an articulated skeleton,
1. Identify and study the bone of the arm "humerus" and bones of
the forearm "ulna and Radius."
2. Identify the 8 bones of the wrist, proximally, the scaphoid, lunate, triquetrum and pisiform and distally, the trapezium,
trapezoid, capitate and hamate.
B. Localize and study the superficial structures of the arm and forearm on cadavers:
1. Define the location of dorsal venus network of the hand.
2. Locate the cephalic and basilic veins along with their
tributaries and destination.
3. Identify the cutaneous nerves of the arm and forearm.
4. Differentiate the location and cutaneous innervation of
each brachial and antebrachial cutaneous nerves.
5. Appreciate the deep membraneous fuscia of the arm and
forearm along with their deep septae.
6. Identify the three muscles of the anterior compartment of
the arm. Define their origin, insertion, actions and innervation. Identify and trace the musculocutaneous nerve to the
lateral aspect of the wrist.
7. Identify the triceps and anconeus muscles in the posterior
compartment of the arm. Define the origin, insertion, action,
and innervation of the above muscles.
8. Identify the component of the neurovascular bundle of the arm.
9. Locate the brachial artery within the neurovascular bundle along with its three major branches.
10. Identify the major nerves that accompany the major vessels.
11. Identify and trace the median and ulnar nerves in the arm.
12. Define the cubital fossa along with its contents.
13. Describe the relationship of the major structures in the cubital
14. Identify the five muscles of the superficial group in the forearm
anterior compartment, along with their origin, insertion,
action and innervation.
15. Identify the three muscles of the deep group of the forearm
anterior compartment, along with their origin, insertion, action
16. Identify the course and innervation of the median and ulnar
