The pulmonary veins are the only veins in the body that carry oxygenated blood.

Like all veins the blood in the pulmonary veins travel toward the heart.

Deoxygenated. The blood is carried by the pulmonary arteries from the heart to the lungs to replenish the oxygen.


Blood carried by the pulmonary arteries is deoxygenated. Blood carried by the pulmonary veins is oxygenated.



Pulmonary arteries transport de-oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs, where carbon dioxide from the blood is exchanged for oxygen in the lungs.


Blood carried by the vein is oxygenated whereas the blood carried by the artery is de oxygenated


The left atrium receives the blood carried from the pulmonary veins.


Oxygenated blood is carried by all arteries but one which is the pulmonary artery


Pulmonary viens conduct blood away from the lungs.This blood is carried to the right atrium of the heart.


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


This is through the Pulmonary Circulation.


Oxygenated blood is carried through the body by arteries. There is one exception though - the pulmonary artery carries de-oxygenated blood to the lungs; the pulmonary vein returns to the heart carrying oxygenated blood.


Low oxygen/de-oxygenated blood is carried by:all the veins (except the pulmonary vein)the pulmonary artery.


Oxygenated blood is carried by the pulmonary vein. This vein transports blood from the lungs to the heart.


The pulmonary artery is the only artery in the body that carries de-oxygenated blood. The pulmonary vein is the only vein that carries oxygenated blood. This is because technically the blood is being carried away from the heart, to the lungs in the case of the pulmonary artery.


The systemic circualtion enters the heart at the right atrium. This blood is carried here by the superior and inferior vena cava and the coronary sinus. The pulmonary circulaiton is carried tothe heart by the pulmonary veins and is deposited in the left atrium.


Veins carry de-oxygenated blood apart from the pulmonary vein which carries oxygenated blood.The type of blood that is carried by most veins is called deoxygenated blood. However, the pulmonary vein does carry oxygenated blood.


Specifically the aorta carries oxygenated blood from the left ventricle of the heart to the tissues of the body. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs. Deoxygenated blood is carried away from the heart to the lungs by the pulmonary artery, and oxygeneted blood is carried away from the heart by the aorta.


Once your right ventricle pumps blood into the 2 pulmonary arteries, it is carried to the right and left lung. It receives oxygen in the lungs and is then carried to the left atrium of the heart though the pulmonary veins.


There are two pathspulmonary circulation- covers short distances as blood flows from heart to lungs trough pulmonary artery and returns back immediately through pulmonary vein.systemic circulation- blood is carried by aorta to all parts of the body and is brought back by pulmonary vein.


Yes, blood needs to go into the lungs via the pulmonary artery so gas exchange can occur. This turns the oxygen poor blood in the pulmonary artery into oxygen rich blood which is carried back to the heart via the pulmonary vein. No, then the pathway would be wiped out and you would not be able to breathe.


The pulmonary vein carries oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart. This is the only time oxygenated blood is carried by veins.


Deoxygenated blood travels through the veins called the inferior vena cava and superior vena cave into the right atrium. Blood flows from the right atrium, through a valve and into the right ventricle and into the pulmonary arteries. From the pulmonary arteries the blood is carried to the lungs. So the answer is pulmonary artery.


Except the pulmonary vein which carries oxygenated blood back to the heart. Arteries = oxygenated Vein = oxygen depleted


blood vessels! the two main blood vessels are veins and arteries. This is correct, however doesn't answer the question. The blood vessel that carried blood from the lungs is the pulmonary vein.


The heart pumps blood through the arteries to all parts of the body. The blood is carried back to the heart through the veins.There is an exception: The Pulmonary artery is the only artery that carries blood to the heart & and the Pulmonary Vein is the only vein that carries blood from the heart.
