Homework Help: Anatomy

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, December 10, 2012 at 9:18pm.

A 27 year old woman suffers a fracture of her tibia. The fracture is severe enough that she needs immobilization of the bone as well as the joints both proximal and distal to the bone. How should the cast be applied?
A. Across the elbow
B. From above the elbow to below the wrist
C. From above the knee to below the ankle
D. Across the knee.
I am thinking the answer is C because the tibia is a bone below the knee. I'm confused about proximal and distal but I'm thinking proximal is above the knee and distal is below the ankle.
