Diseases of the heart and arterial system : designed to be a practical presentation of the subject for the use of students and practitioners of medicine . s of the thumbsare then gently pressed togetherin front of the abdomen, and, a proper degree of resistancebeing offered, they are thus slowlyraised until the hands rest on thetop of the bead, after which theyare slowly lowered to the originalposition (Figs. 86 and 87). (6) The arms, depending atthe sides, are then elevated for-ward and upward without bend-ing them until thev are held alofton a line with the perpendicularaxis of the body. They are nextslowly allowed to resume theirposition at the side in the samecareful manner in which theywere raised. To properly resistthis movement requires muchpractice and skill, for the reason that the hand of the attendant must be continually slipped aroundthe patients wrist to suit the changing attitude, first to the horizon-tal and then the vertical (Figs. 88 and 89). (7) Starting with the arms hanging at the side, the rightarm is slowly rotated forward, upward, backward, and downwardaround the shoulder-joint as the pivot, and then in the reverse. Fig. 85.
