Patient had shoulder arthroscopy
Thu Sep 1, 2005 14:35

Here's the context:

The patient has +1 swelling of the right shoulder, portal incisions with sutures in place. No signs of infection present. Axillary nerve distribution is intact to light touch as well as S/L "into the distal hand" of the radial, medial and ulnar nerve distribution.

Does "into the distal hand" make sense here? Sounds like he's saying that. Cannot hear "end," distinctly hear the "h" sound as in "hand." Thanks for helping!
