Stimulation of this point draws the internal angle of the scapula upward, inward and forward, while the acromion, fixed by the weight of the arm and the action of the antagonists, moves very little. 21. rhrenic nmv. This is the important motor point far the production of artificial respiration. The positive electrode should be large, and must be pressed gently ngainst the outer margin of the sterno cleido-mastoid muscle, near the omo-hyoid muscle. The result is rapid contraction of the diaphragm, bulging out of the abdomen, and the forcible entry of air into the trachea, giving rise to a sobbing sound.
