The Wrist, Hand, & Fingers Skills Lab #4: Palpations
Instructions 1.Palpate the anatomical structures on your partner 2.Label the structures using various colored pens 1.Use a different color for each aspect, or a different color for bones, muscles, ligaments, etc. 2.Mark each with #s for easier identification
Anterior Palpations (Palmar) Skeletal 1.Radial styloid process 2.Ulnar styloid process 3.Pisiform 4.Hamate (hook) 5.Lunate 6.Scaphoid 7.1 st MCP joint
Posterior Palpations (Dorsal) Skeletal 1.Metacarpals 3.Phalanges 9.Ulnar head 10.Ulnar styloid process 12.Radial styloid process A.Scaphoid B.Trapezium C.Lunate D.Triquetrum E.Pisiform (anterior) F.Hamate G.Capitate H.Trapezoid
Posterior Palpations (Dorsal) Soft Tissue 2.Collateral ligaments of MCPs (RCL & UCL of each digit) 4.Collateral ligaments of IPs (RCL & UCL of each joint) 6.Thenar webspace 11.Ulnar collateral ligament of the wrist 14.Radial collateral ligament of the wrist
REVIEW QUESTIONS (2pts each) 1.Describe how to best palpate the muscles that flex the wrist. 2.Describe how to differentiate between the wrist extensors and the extensor digitorum muscle. 3.What is the term for the area between the APL/EPB and EPL muscles? What bone is located within that area?
