On further inspection, he notes an inability to flex the proximal interphalengeal joints of his four medial fingers. He concludes from the information that he has injured his:

During his trip to the ER, he studied his wrist and began to make an initial diagnosis. Remembering his training, he initially assumed that the cut had affected all of the muscles in his wrist and he proceeded to examine all of them.

Since he was able to flex the distal phalangeal joints of his four medial digits and his thumb, he concluded the following muscles were uninjured?

When he got up from his fall, he noticed he could not support his right arm and he had lost feeling on his shoulder. As he slowly made his way to the hospital, he reviewed his knowledge of the shoulder joint.
