Since the 1st rib curves posteriorly in a short bow, ST-13 is generally situated lateral to the 1st rib.
➞ KID-27 is located medial to ST-13, but inferior to the lower border of the clavicle and 2 cun lateral to the anterior midline.
➞ Ren-21 is located on the midline. ➞ ST-14 is located only slightly inferior to ST-13 in the 1st intercostal space.
