What is the distance from the end of the axillary fold on the lateral side of the chest to the tip of the 11th rib?
Where does the bladder lie?
Behind the pubic symphysis, and if full it will extend upwards into the hypogastric area, possibly as far as REN-4. ● It is advisable to ask the patient to empty their bladder prior to needling in this area.
Where does the spleen lie?
Beneath the ninth, tenth, and eleventh ribs on the left side of the abdominal cavity, deep to the postero-lateral aspect of the ribcage.
Penetration of blood vessels is likely to result in what kindof sensation?

In the case of arterial bleeding -- generally more rapid and brighter-red hemorrhage in color -- how long should pressure be applied?
A minimum of 3 minutes
What does perpendicular denote?
this denotes a 90 degree angle to the skin surface
How far does the pleural cavity extend?
From the: ● SUPRACLAVICULAR FOSSA superiorly, ● down to the 8TH RIB in the MID-CLAVICULAR LINE, ● to the 10TH RIB in the MID-AXILLARY LINE, and to the ● 12TH RIB at the LATERAL BORDER of the ERECTOR SPINAE muscles.
How far do the two posteriorly pleural reflections runvertically alongside the thoracic vertebral bodies?
From T1 extending down to T12.
In order to avoid the risk of pneumothorax, perpendicular or deep oblique needling should not be used anywhere over the:
thoracic cavity, whether on the: ● chest ● back ● supraclavicular area
Where does the spleen extend if it is enlarged in EXTREMEcases?
