How do you trace the path of a blood cell from the right leg femoral vein to the large intestines?
Wow! What a question: From the right femoral
vein up to the inferior vena cava, then into the heart's right
atrium, past the tricuspid valve, into the right ventricle, then up
past the pulmonary semilunar valve, out of the heart and into the
pulmonary trunk, into the pulmonary arteries, to the lungs, then
the pulmonary veins bring the blood back to the heart's left
atrium, past the mitral valve, into the left ventricle, past the
aortic semilunar valve, then out of the heart into the Aortic arch,
down the dorsal Aorta, into the inferior mesenteric artery, and
then into the colon, or large intestine. That was one
"">heck of a trip!
