By palpating across the clavicle from superior to inferior, the first rib will generally be felt directly below the clavicle, although, in some cases, the 1st rib might be completely hidden under the clavicle.
The 1st intercostal space follows directly inferior to the 1st rib, where ST-14 is located.
