No. All veins are carry de-oxygenated blood. Veins carry de-oxygenated blood to the heart so that the heart in turn can pump that de-oxygenated blood to the lungs where they will become oxygenated.

No, it is oxygenated. Pulmonary veins are the only veins in the human body that carry oxygenated blood.


all veins carry de-oxygenated blood except pulmonary vein


Yes, the pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart. All other veins carry deoxygenated blood.


The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood.


The only veins in an adult that carry oxygenated blood are the pulmonary veins, which carry blood from the lungs to the heart after it has been oxygenated. All other veins in the body carry relatively de-oxygenated blood.However in fetal circulation, the umbilical vein also carries oxygenated blood.Otherwise, arteries carry oxygenated blood to the body from the aorta and heart.


All veins carry blood to the heart, but the difference between the pulmonary vein and all others is that the pulmonary transports oxygenated blood to the heart. De-oxygenated blood flows through the other veins.


Red veins carry oxygenated blood.


arteries have oxygenated blood and veins have oxygenated blood


No. In fact, the only vein that carries oxygenated blood to the heart is the pulmonary vein. All other veins carry deoxygenated blood to the heart.


For the most part, arteries carry oxygenated blood and veins carry de-oxygenated blood. This is opposite in the pulmonary veins and arteries because they are going to and from the lungs to get oxygen.


Blood in the arteries is oxygenated. Blood in the veins is de-oxygenated. With the exception of the pulmonary arteries which carry de-oxygenated blood, and the pulmonary veins that carry oxygenated blood.


The only veins that carry oxygenated blood are the pulmonary veins, which return blood from the lungs to the heart.


All veins in your body carry de-oxygenated blood. Arteries carry oxygenated blood.


Nope, some veins carry unoxygenated blood back to your heart.


All veins carry de-oxygenated blood except for the pulmonary vein, which carries oxygenated blood from the lungs directly to the heart. All arteries carry oxygenated blood except for the pulmonary artery, which carries deoxygenated blood from the heart directly to the lungs.


veins are the blood vessles that return de-oxygenated blood to your heart, while arteries carry oxygenated blood.


The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart.


Only when it is the pulmonary vein, as it carries oxygenated blood to the heart. All other veins carry de-oxygenated blood which ends up going to the heart. (The pulmonary vein, however, comes from the lungs, where blood is first oxygenated and then transported to the heart.)


The typical definition of an artery is a blood vessel that transports oxygenated blood from the heart to all body cells; veins usually carry de-oxygenated blood from the body to the heart. In the pulmonary vessels, this is not the case: the pulmonary arteries transport de-oxygenated blood to the lungs; the pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart.


In general veins carry de oxygenated blood from the tissues to the heart.


The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood to the left atrium of the heart.


The pulmonary veins are the only veins in the body that carry oxygenated blood. Like all veins the blood in the pulmonary veins travel toward the heart.


Pulmonary veins are the only ones that carry properly oxygenated blood. The reason is say properly oxygenated is that some would argue that the Hepatic Portal Vein's primary function is to collct nutrients and does not completely surrender all its oxygen, remaining partially oxygenated.


All veins carry blood to the heart, and pulmonary veins are specifically veins that carry oxygenated blood (oxygenated in the lungs) from the lungs to the heart. In other words, the left pulmonary vein carries oxygenated blood from the left lung to the heart, and the right pulmonary vein carries oxygenated blood from the right lung to the heart.


As veins flow TOWARDS the heart, the PULMONARY VEINS are the only veins that carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the LEFT ATRIUM.
