No, only in the systemic (body) circuit. The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood.
All veins carry blood to the heart. The pulmonary vein carries oxygen rich blood to the heart from the lungs.

All of them. Veins carry blood from the body to the heart, arteries carry blood from the heart to the body.


In all cases except one, veins carry deoxygenated blood. The exception is the pulmonary veins which carry oxygenated blood to the heart from the lungs. Veins ALWAYS carry blood to the heart.


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


in most cases, veins carry deoxygenated blood. the exception to this are the pulmonary veins which carry oxygenated blood. all veins carry blood back to the heart, while arteries carry blood away from the heart.


Blood vessels are of two types - Veins and Arteries. Arteries carry blood away from the heart. Veins carry blood back to the heart. All animals have veins and arteries.


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


It is very true that most all veins carry deoxygenated blood.


Arteries always carry blood away from the heart. Veins always carry blood back to the heart. Not all arteries carry high O2 blood. Not all veins carry low O2 blood.


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.


Through flaps called valves which carry it into veins, the veins carry blood all the way around the body


all veins carry de-oxygenated blood except pulmonary vein


None of them. All arteries carry blood away from the heart, and all veins carry blood to the heart.


veins are blood vessel carrying blood toward the heart; postnatally, all veins except the pulmonary carry dark unoxygenated blood.


all veins carry blood if you mean the only vein to not carry deoxygenated blood it is the pulmonary artery.


It carry’s towards the heart


Veins carry deoxygenate blood and arteries 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 de-oxygenated blood away from the heart except for the pulmonary vein and the umbilical vein, both of which carry blood towards the heart.


all veins except for the pulmonary veins are low in oxygen


Arteries always carry blood away from the heart. Veins always carry blood back to the heart. In almost all cases, arteries carry oxygenated blood. And veins carry deoxygenated blood. The exception to this rule is that pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart and Pulmonary arteries carry deoxygeneted blood.


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.


Veins always bring blood from somewhere to the heart. The pulmonary veins bring it from the lungs to the heart and is the only time when it carries oxygenated blood. All other veins carry deoxygenated blood from the body tissues back to the heart.


While most veins carry dark CO2 rich blood, three exceptions are the pulmonary veins which return oxygenated blood to the heart from the lungs, the portal veins from the digestive organs, gall bladder, and spleen to the liver, and the umbilical veins which carry blood from the fetus to the mother's placenta.


All veins carry blood TO the heart, while arteries carry blood AWAY from the heart (A-rtery = A-way).


Veins are blood vessels that carry blood from all parts of the body back to the heart.
