Humeralis Artehia

(From humerus, the shoulder). The humeral artery arises from the lower and fore side of the axillaris, and runs backward between the head of the os humeri and teres major, surrounding the articulation, till it reaches the posterior part of the deltoides, to which it is distributed. In its course it gives off several branches to the neighbouring parts. A puncture of this artery, near the shoulder, though the haemorrhage may be restrained by ligature, will probably, it is said, be followed by a fatal mortification unless the arm be amputated at the joint.

Humeralis musculus. See Deltoides.

Humeralis nervus. See Cervicales.


Os. The bone of the arm; adjutorium; is articulated by its head, which in children is an epiphysis, to the scapula: immediately, below the head is the neck of the humerus. This bone grows broader at its lower extremity; and at the end is formed into two condyles, on the external of which the head of the radius moves; and, in the cavities, between these condyles, the ulna.

(Ab humo, because moisture springs from the ground). Humour. A general name for any fluid; particularly applied to the fluids of the human body, and often to these in their morbid state. The term is used without any reference to diseas'e, in speaking of the fluids of the eye; and popularly employed as synonymous with disposition; in the time of Shakspeare and Jonson greatly abused by an indiscriminate application. The ancients seem to have called the nutritious juices the radical humours.


(From humor, a fluid). In Lin-naeus's Nosology it is an order of diseases in the class vitia; and signifies disorders attended with vitiated or extravasated fluids.


(From the same). A continued fever, in Sagar's system, apparently inflammatory, attended with a vitiation of the fluids.
