The Edwin Smith Papyrus A Fracture of the Humerus

      EXAMINATION If thou examinest a man having a break in his upper arm, (and) thou findest his upper
              arm hanging down, separated from its fellow .

      DIAGNOSIS Thou shouldst say concerning him  "One having a break in his upper arm. An ailment
              which I will treat."

            Thou shouldst place him prostrate on his back, with something folded between his two shoulder-
            blades; thou shouldst spread out with his shoulders, 
            in order to stretch apart his upper arm until that break falls into its place. Thou shouldst make for
            him two splints of linen, (and) thou shouldst apply for
            him one of them both in the inside of his arm, (and) the other of them both on the under of his arm.
            Thou shouldst bind it with ymrw, (and) treat afterward with honey every day until he recovers.
