When the elbow is dislocated either inward or outward, extension is
to be made with the fore-arm at a right angle to the arm; the arm,
suspended by means of a shawl passed through the armpit, and a weight
attached to the extremity of the elbow; or force may be applied with
the hands; when the articular extremity has been cleared, the displaced
parts are to be rectified with the palms of the hand, as in dislocations
of the hands. It is to be bandaged, suspended in a sling, and placed
while in this attitude.
