All arteries carry blood that is rich in oxygen except those arteries that carry blood to the lungs called the pulmonary arteries.

The pulmonary artery carries oxygen poor blood and the pulmonary vein carries oxygen rich blood.

The pulmanary artery carries oxygen poor blood.

The pulmonary artery carries blood away from the heart and it is low in oxygen.

By definition, ALL arteries carry Oxygen rich blood. Veins carry oxygen depleted blood.

An artery doesn't carry oxygen-rich blood from the lungs. The pulmonary vein carries oxygen-rich blood from the lungs.

Veins. And the pulmonary artery.

true or false arteries carry blood low in oxygen

The blood in most arteries is oxygen rich. The blood in the pulmonary artery is oxygen-poor.yes all the arteries carry oxygenated blood except pulmonary artery which carry deoxigenated blood from the right ventricle of the heart towards the lungs..I don't know what arties are, but arteries carry oxygen-rich blood while veins carry CO2 rich blood.

Actually, arteries carry oxygen-rich blood to the body, whereas veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to the heart. The only exception to this rule is the Pulmonary Artery, which carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs. It is called an artery because it carries blood from the heart instead of towards it.

Arteries almost always carry oxygen rich blood. The exception to this rule is the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs to pick up oxygen.

The pulmonary artery carries oxygen-poor blood. The pulmonary vein carries oxygen-rich blood.

All arteries except for the pulmonary artery carry oxygen rich blood. All veins except for the pulmonary vein carry oxygen poor blood. Generally, people think "A" for away from the heart for arteries. All arteries carry blood away from the heart. The one artery that carries blood away from the heart before it gets oxygenated in the lungs is the artery that carries the oxygen poor blood form the right ventricle to the lungs: the pulmonary artery. The blood in the lungs carried back to the heart by the pulmonary vein is the only oxygen rich blood in veins. All other veins which carry blood to the heart carry oxygen poor blood.

The artery that does not carry oxygenated blood (red blood) is the Pulmonary artery.

The pulmonary artery carries non-oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs, where it will receive oxygen.

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.

An Artery caries Oxygen Rich blood and a Vein carries Oxygen Poor blood, but not by definition because the Pulmonary Arteries carry Oxygen Poor blood and the Pulmonary Veins carry Oxygen Rich blood, (these vessles can be found between the heart and the lungs).

I'm pretty sure that the frogs pulmonary artery carries oxygen poor blood to the lungs.

User Avatar

In terms of uniqueness, it is the only artery in the body that carries Oxygen poor blood. All of the other arteries carry oxygen rich blood.

User Avatar

The pulmonary arteries carry blood poor in oxygen and the pulmonary veins carry blood rich in oxygen. This the opposite for any other artery and vein in the body.

Arteries almost always carry oxygen rich blood. The only exception is the pulmonary artery.

An artery ALWAYS carries blood away from the heart, mostly high in oxygen but not all the time.

User Avatar

the artries always carry O2 rich blood but the exception to this rule is pulmonary artery which carries o2 poor blood.pulmonary artery carries O deficit blood to the lungs it is exception to artries which always carry O rich blood to organs of body.

User Avatar

arteries mainly carry oxygenated blood as they transport blood around the body providing oxygen in order to keep the body functioning. the veins usually carry deoxygenated blood to be recycled.

User Avatar

false; all arteries except the pulmonary artery carry oxygen-rich blood.
