Anatomists have given the name sublimis to certain muscles, which are situate more superficially than their kindred muscles. These last they have called profundi. Of the former, the flexor sublimis digitorum is an example. The French use the term respiration sublims for the respiration which is accompanied by considerable elevation of the ribs, and with separation of the alae nasi at the time of inspiration.
