The Nerve to the Subclavius (or subclavian nerve) is a small filament, which arises from the point of junction of the fifth and sixth cervical nerves; it descends to the subclavius muscle in front of the third part of the subclavian artery and the lower trunk of the plexus, and is usually connected by a filament with the phrenic nerve.
