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

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.


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.


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


all veins carry de-oxygenated blood except pulmonary vein


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


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.


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.


Veins carry deoxygenate blood and arteries carry oxygenated blood.


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.


The pulmonary vein is the only vein that carries oxygenated blood. All other veins carry deoxygenated blood.


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.)


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.


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.


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.


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.


The pulmonary vein is the vessel that carries oxygenated blood. Veins, arteries and capillaries are all known as blood vessels as they carry blood around the body.The pulmonary vein is unusual because it is the only vein to carry oxygenated blood, all other veins only carry deoxygenated blood.


All arteries contain oxygenated blood, it is their job to carry the oxygen to the organs nad supply them with he oxygen they carry, it is the veins that are generally deoxygenates. The expetion to these is the the pulmonary arteries and veins. These carry the opposite of the vessels, ie the arteries here carry deoxygenated blood and the vein carry oxygenated blood.


Yes. People may often say that the "dirty blood" or de-oxygenated blood is transported in the veins, though this is not completely accurate as The Pulmonary Veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs TO THE heart.


Arteries carries blood away from the heart. They mostly carry oxygenated blood. The pulmonary artery however carries unoxygenated blood.Veins carry blood toward the heart. They likewise carry unoxygenated blood except for the pulmonary veins which carries oxygenated blood.


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.


All veins carry blood TO the heart. Normally, veins carry de-oxygenated blood, but the pulmonary vein poses an exception, because it takes fresh oxygen directly from the lungs. Likewise, the pulmonary artery carries de-oxygenated blood to the lungs. It is called an artery because it takes blood AWAY FROM the heart.


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 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 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.


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.
