Arteries carry blood away from the heart, veins carry blood to the heart, and capillaries branch off of arteries and veins. Capillaries are essentially min-arteries and min-veins.
yes in artery, you can but capillary and veins no. yes in artery, you can but capillary and veins no. yes in artery, you can but capillary and veins no.
The answer is an artery(arteries), a vein(veins), and a capillary(capillaries)
Heart > artery > arteriole > capillary > venule > vein > heart
compare and contrast the structure of a vein and artery
Capillaries connect arteries and veins. =========== Yes, with arterioles and venules in between. (artery - arterioli - capillary - venule - vein)
Small veins into larger veins, eg antecubital to subclavian to brachiocephalic to superior vena cava to right atrium of heart to right ventricle to pulmonary artery to lung capillaries to pulmonary veins to left atrium to left ventricle to aorta to brachiocephalic trunk to right subclavian artery to radial or ulnar artery to thumb!
The arteries and veins in an umbilical cord are different from the vessels in the rest of the body. These are more numerous and much thinner.
the walls of lymphatic vessels are similar to those of veins
A capillary is the smallest blood vessel. It connects arteries and veins.
veins go to heart, arteries go away from heart
Microcirulation consists of terminal arterioles connected to capillaries. The capillaries are connected to post-capillary venules which are connected to the veins,
The walls of the artery are generally thicker and their tunica media layer contains more smooth muscle and elastic fibres. When it is not opposed by blood pressure, the walls of the artery still contracts so arteries generally appear to be smaller in histological sections. As the endothelial lining of an artery cannot contract, an artery's endothelium is thrown into folders when it constricts and it gives it a pleated appearance. Veins do not have these folds.
It comes back through the pulmonary veins. Veins always carry blood TO the heart. This is the only case where veins are high in oxygen.
A 'blood vessel' can be an artery, vein, capillary, or an arteriole or a venule. These last two are minor arteries or veins. While technically a muscle, the heart is sometimes referred to as the 'largest blood vessel in the body'.
Blood flows from arteries to veins or from arterioles (small arteries) to venules (small veins) in a capillary bed.
A capillary connects arteries and veins. it is the site of diffusion of materials from cells to and from the bloodstream.
Head (In arteries)> Arterial Capillary Bed>Venus Capillary Bed>Veins>Jugular Veins>Superiod Vena Cava> Right Atrium (of heart>Right Ventricle (of Heart)> Pulmonary Arteries>Left Atrium (Of heart)> Left Ventricle (Of heart)>Aorta>Femoral Artery. After the Femoral artery the blood flow varries, unless you can give a more specific answer than "leg"
Small veins into larger veins: ulnar vein (feeds the thumb side) to subclavian v. to brachiocephalic v. to superior vena cava v. to right atrium of heart to right ventricle to pulmonary artery to lung capillaries to pulmonary veins to left atrium to left ventricle to aorta to brachiocephalic trunk to right subclavian artery to ulnar artery to thumb!
heart disorder hypertension coronary artery disease arteriosclerosis's veins
The tunica media of arteries is larger than that of veins of same size.The tunica adventitia is larger in veins than arteries of same size.
how veins connected to hte artery
The capillary is the site of diffusion of materials to and from the cells and bloodstream. They connect arteries and veins.
The artery has more muscle, media layer. This is used for contraction. The veins have little muscle layer, but have valves to prevent back flow.
No the veins are bigger than the artery
the veins are narrower and the arteries are thicker because the arteries should have to withstand a great force
