all veins except for the pulmonary veins are low in oxygen

Veins carry blood low in oxygen and arteries carry blood rich in oxygen.


Usually veins carry blood low in oxygen back to the heart except for the pulmonary veins. They carry blood higher in oxygen.


No, they usually carry low oxygen blood except for the pumonary veins which carry oxygen from the lungs to the heart.


Veins carry blood back to the heart but the blood is not always low in oxygen. If the blood is coming back from the lungs to the heart, it will be higher in oxygen.


Pulmonary veins carry oxygen rich blood from the lungs to the heart. Pulmonary arteries carry low-oxygen blood from the heart to the lungs.


The arteries carry the blood that is high in oxygen content, while the veins carry the blood that is low in oxygen content.


veins. arteries carry oxygenated blood to the body, and veins carry the deoxygenated blood back to the lungs.


Most arteries are high in oxygen except for the pulmonary arteries.Most veins carry blood low in O2 The only veins that carry blood high in oxygen are the pulmonary veins.


Blood cells low on oxygen.


Arteries always carry blood away from the heart. Veinsalways carry blood back to the heart.Most arteries are high in oxygen except for the pulmonary arteries. Most veins are low in O2.And then there are the pulmonary veins. The only veins that carry blood high in oxygen.


Veins are the blood vessels that carry the blood that is low in oxygen back to the heart. Remember this trick; Arteries Away from the heart, veins back to the heart. I think that veins carry deoxygenated blood to the heart. For example, vena cava superior from head and upper limbs.


To symbolize that arteries carry blood that's rich in oxygen while veins carry blood that's low on oxygen.


Arteries take blood away from the heart (arteries=away). Almost always these carry blood high in oxygen. Veins carry blood back to the heart and almost always carry blood low in oxygen. The only exception: Pulmonary arteries carry blood away from the heart but they are low in oxygen and need to pick up this in the lungs. The Pulmonary veins carry oxygen to heart from the lungs.


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.


These are called the pulmonary veins. Arteries always carry blood away from the heart but not all of these have blood high in oxygen. Veins carry blood back to the heart. Again most are low in oxygen except the ones coming from the lungs.


The tiniest blood vessels that carry oxygen-rich blood are the capillaries. These capillaries form a bed. The arterioles that carry the blood into the bed are high in oxygen. The oxygen is released to the cells. The rest of the bed is low in oxygen and venules carry deoxygenated blood to the veins back to the heart.


Arteries carry blood away from the heart and veins carry low oxygenated blood back to or towards the heart.


Veins carry blood at low pressure back into the heart.


No your blood is not red until it hits oxygen, that is why your veins are not red. The above answer is incorrect. All blood is red but blood with oxygen is brighter red and blood lower in oxygen is darker red. All veins do not carry blood low in oxygen. Most do but not ones coming to the heart from the lungs.


No. Arteries carry blood from the heart to the rest of the organs, and veins carry blood back to the heart. All arteries have high pressure from being pumped by the heart so recently, and all veins have low pressure from travelling round the body for so long. Most arteries carry oxygenated blood (except for the pulmonary artery, which goes to the lungs to pick up more oxygen) and most veins carry deoxygenated blood (except for the pulmonary vein, which has lots of oxygen from the lungs).


Arteries don't always carry blood that is high in oxygen. The term artery is an anatomical term. All blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart are arteries. All blood vessels that carry blood back to the heart are veins. Most arteries do carry blood that's high in oxygen but there is an exception. When the arteries carry blood to the lungs, this blood is low in oxygen. The veins that carry the blood back to the heart from the lungs is high in oxygen. This is called the pulmonary circuit. In this more or less seems backwards. It's best to remember that arteries carry blood away from the heart.


no, pulmonary arteries do not carry oxygen rich blood?Answer:No, two arteries carry blood with low levels of oxygen:The pulmonary artery carry blood from heart to the lungs to become oxygenated.The umbilical arteries in the fetus.except the pulmanory arteryThe Pulmonary arteryit is the aortaTrue. Veins are the return route for oxygen depleted blood.Yes they take the oxygenated throughout the body. Veins return the blood to be oxygenated by the lungs.


Veins are blood vessels that are all over your body. The main function of the veins is to carry blood from the body back to the heart. This blood is low in oxygen, depleted of nutrients, and loaded with waste products.


Not all arteries carry oxygenated blood. The definition of an artery is a vessel that carries blood away from the heart. There are the pulmonary arteries that carry blood low in oxygen from the heart to the lungs. Pulmonary veins bring blood higher in oxygen back to the heart. Then that blood is sent out the rest of the body.


The vessels that carry blood to the heart are called veins and the vessels that carry blood away from the heart are called arteries.Arteries Always carry blood Away from the heart. Most are oxygenated except the pulmonary arteries which are low in oxygen and are going to the lungs to pick up oxygen.
