What is the kind of artery that takes blood to the heart?
Artery and vein are two terms that are in the circulatory
system. They are just anatomical terms. Arteries
Always carry blood Away from the heart.
Veins are the opposite. They carry blood back to the heart.
Most of the time arteries are higher in oxygen but not always. That is why you must understand that arteries always carry blood away from the heart.
The "type" of blood vessel is an artery. The largest, an elastic one connected to the heart, is the aorta.
Most arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs.
The arteries carry or trasfer the oxygenated (PURE BLOOD WHICH IS PUMPED BY HEART)blood from the heart to all parts or organs of our body.
Blood travels through the tubes known as blood vessels. There are three types of blood vessels: arteries, veins, and capillaries. Arteries always carry blood away from your heart, and veins take blood to the heart. Capillaries connect arteries and veins. The body's main artery, the pulmonary artery, takes blood from the heart. The pulmonary vein takes blood to it. The Veins are the "tubes" in our bodies that carry blood throughout the body. One kind… Read More
They leave that heart through a major artery called the Aorta.
The renal artery carries blood to the kidney, and the renal vein carries blood that has been purified by the kidney.
Bleeding from an artery or arterial.
All arteries carry oxygenated blood.
You are NEVER to put anything directly into an artery except for arterial monitoring devices, administering medications of any kind directly to an artery can cause death. Administering medications and IV fluids, glucose, etc to the vein allows time for the fluids to be absorbed on a cellular level before getting to the heart as veins bring deoxygenated blood back to the heart at a slower rate than arteries that bring oxygenated blood from the… Read More
Oxygenated blood is carried by all arteries but one which is the pulmonary artery
Define the term collateral blood flow and describe how this and other factors affect the development of a stroke?
When a collateral vessel on the heart enlarges, it lets blood flow from an opencoronary artery to an adjacent one or further downstream on the same artery. In this way, collateral vessels grow and form a kind of "detour" around a blockage. This collateral circulation provides alternate routes of blood flow to the heart in cases when the heart isn't getting the blood supply it needs. When an artery in the brain is blocked due… Read More
The heart kind of looks like a royal crown. So in Latin, the word for crown (corona) was used to describe the heart. Thus, coronary means "pertaining to the heart". An artery is a blood vessel leading away from the heart toward another body part. This usually means that an artery is carrying fresh, red blood (oxygen-rich blood). So coronary artery means that fresh blood from inside the heart is being sent to the heart… Read More
Veins as they carry deoxygenated blood from body to heart and from heart to lungs.
The heart pumps oxygenated blood to the body.
oxygenated blood so that the heart can then pump it out to the body
blood that has not been oxegenated.
Arteries have smooth muscle in their walls. The smaller the artery is, the less muscle is found. Veins have none, they count on the skeltal muscles to move blood back to the heart. The veins also have valves which prevent back flow.
Answer The carotid artery provides the brain with the blood that carries the blood and oxygen. http://www.answers.com/topic/common-carotid-artery-1 Blood provides the brain and all of our other organs with the oxygen and nourishment it needs. Blood is kind of like the body's highway, it gets everything where it needs to go. When our heart beats blood is sent to the lungs, then when we breath the red blood cells absorb oxygen, then when our heart beats… Read More
Arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart.....veins carry deoxygenated blood to the heart
The blood that leaves the frogs heart through the ventricles is almost pure blood. This blood goes to the brain.
Oxygenated blood flows from the lungs to the heart. Then it gets pumped out to the rest of the body from the left side of the heart.
Veins carry blood back to the heart (though not always with a low O2 concentration)
Either a arteriole on the artery side or a venule on the vein side of the bed.
for circulation of blood
All arteries supply blood. Ateries branch off into arterioles. Then capillaries are where oxygen and nutrient exchange occurs. Then veins take the blood back.
arteries carry oxygen rich blood out of the heart and veins carry oxygen deprived blood back to th heart
they do not have a heart or blood vessels
What kind of surgeon operates on the lungs heart or the large blood vessels within the chest cavity?
what kind of surgeon operates on the lungs , heart, or the large blood vessels within the chest cavity
Yes, artery blockage can cause heart attacks, which cause 1 out of 6 deaths in the United States. If you or someone you love is at risk for artery blockage, they should consult a doctor about what kind of behavioral changes and medication might be able to decrease their risk of dying from artery blockage (also known as coronary artery disease).
Kind of. Arteries carry blood away from the heart to the body where the oxygen is used up, and then the deoxygenated blood is transported through capillaries to the veins, through which it is taken to the heart.
any infection that gets in the blood stream can also get in the heart causing infection.
You kind of die.
an electrical impulse
oxygenated blood through aorta.
Oxygenated blood leaves the lungs and returns to the heart via pulmonary veins to be pumped throughout the body.
Your circulatory system is so important! It consists of your blood, blood vessels, and heart. Your heart brings blood to your heart through your veins, and when it gets to your heart, it goes through your right atrium, through your right ventricle, into your lungs through your arteries, back into your heart through veins, into your left atrium, through your left ventricle, and goes through your biggest artery, the aorta, and then other arteries to… Read More
Yes, there is not an infinite supply of blood in your body. It's just the same blood being recycled by your heart. When your blood goes around your body, it's deprived of oxygen, so your heart kind of "freshens" the blood cells when they return to the heart. That's why people sometimes die from loss of blood.
Arteries, capillaries, and veins. Arteries take blood away from the heart. Veins return blood to the heart. Capillaries are between the arteries and veins and supply the cells with oxygen and nutrients.
Veins are assisted in returning blood to the heart through the contraction of skeletal muscles. These muscles, along with the veins' valves, help blood return to the heart.
Its the venous blood which has low oxygen concentration.
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.
It is an artery.
Your heart is constantly is constricting and expanding which is what makes your blood flow. One part of the heart pumps in blood while the other part pumps out blood making a thud dud kind of noise.
Venous circulation. The arterial system moves oxygenated away from the heart to the rest of the body (as well as deoxygenated blood away from the heart to the lung). Blood moves mostly passively through the venous system, but muscular contractions in the legs help force blood upward (against gravity) to the heart when standing.
Cardiovascular surgery is the surgical treatment of the heart and blood vessels. Treatments may fix blockages, leaky valves, or other problems.
A cardiovascular disease is a disease effecting the cardiovascular system, the heart and blood vessels. A heart disease is a kind of cardiovascular disease which is specific to the heart.
