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.

Why pulmonary veins have no valves

where are pulmonary veins located

Pulmonary Arteries lead from the heart to the lungs. Systemic arteries go everywhere else. Consequently, the pulmonary arteries are usually slightly smaller and thinner. There is also less of them.

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.

The main difference between systemic and pulmonary circulatory systems is the method in which they exchange oxygen. Pulmonary systems use aveoli in the lungs to pull in oxygen while systemic systems distribute it to the rest of the body through veins, arteries, and capillaries.

pulmonary arteries carries deoxygenated blood while pulmonary veins carries oxygenated blood

The pulmonary veins are veins which carry oxygenated blood (unlike most veins) back from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart.

Pulmonary veins derive from the lungs. And reside in the cardiovascular system.

Pulmonary veins are the blood vessels which carry freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs into the heart. There are four pulmonary veins, two of which come from each lung.

The pulmonary arteries and the pulmonary veins.

Pulmonary arteries and pulmonary veins are two different items. The pulmonary artery takes deoxygenated blood from the heart and into the lungs so that the blood can be oxygenated. The oxygenated blood then returns to the heart, via the pulmonary veins, in order to be pumped into the system circulation.

In the human body arteries carry oxygenated blood and veins carry deoxygenated blood. The pulmonary arteries and veins are exceptions to this rule. The pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood, and the pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood.

the name pulmonary means lungs.. veins take blood away from the heart.. and yes there are four.. two are the left pulmonary veins.. two are the right pulmonary veins.. they are not named separately except for the right/left part..

arteries have oxygenated blood and veins have oxygenated blood

No. Pulmonary veins take blood from the lungs to the right atrium.(veINs take blood IN to the heart.) Pulmonary arteries take blood from the heart(left ventricle) to the lungs. But pulmonary veins are the only veins in the body to carry oygenated blood, and pulmonary arteries are the only arteries to carry deoxygenated blood.

Veins are muscular, arteries are not. Veins are designed to collapse (when empty), arteries are not.

The pulmonary veins leave the lungs and carry blood to the left atrium of the heart.

Veins are vessels that bring blood to the heart. Pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium. There are four pulmonary veins which extend from the left atrium to the lungs. They are the right superior, right inferior, left superior, and left inferior pulmonary veins.

Pulmonary artery, capillaries of the lung, pulmonary veins.

The pulmonary veins are the only veins in the human body that can carry oxygenated blood.

The pulmonary vein is the only vein that carries oxygenated blood. Arteries are the major oxygenated blood carriers (away from the heart) veins carry blood back to the heart. The pulmonary vein returns blood from the lungs to be distributed by the heart and arteries.

Pulmöary veins are d veinswhich carry oxegenated blood to heart.pulmonary arteries r those carry impure bloodto lungs for purification.
