each lymph node has fewer efferent than afferent vessels, so the lymph flow stagnates somewhat within the node this is important because it allows time for the generation of an immune response and for the macrophages to remove debris from the lymp before it reenters the blood vascular system

What structural characterstic ensures a slow flow of lymph through a lymph node Why is this desirable?

Lymph enters the lymph node through a series of afferent lymphatic vessels and exits the lymph node via efferent lymphatic vessels. There are more afferent lymphatic vessels than there are efferent lymphatic vessels, slowing down the flow. The reason the slow flow is desirable is that it allows time for lymphocytes and macrophages to carry out their protective functions of removing debris from lymph.

How is lymph moved through lymphatic vessels?

Lymph is a fluid. It flows through the lymphatic vessels by one way valves which allows lymph move way through lymphatic system. Subclavian suction, and skeletal muscle pumps help to propel the lymph through the lymphatic vessels.

What happens to lymph after it travels through the lymphatic system?

After it travels through the lymphatic system, the lymph nodes filter lymph, trapping bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms in the fluid.Lymphatic vessels open into veins and the fluid re-enters the bloodstream.As lymph flows through the lymphatic system, it passes through small knobs of tissue called lymph nodes. Lymph nodes filter the lymph, trapping bacteria and other microorganisms that cause disease. When the body is fighting an infection, the lymph nodes enlarge. If you've ever had "swollen glands" when you've been sick, you've actually had swollen lymph nodes.
