Lab # 3 Blood Vessels Anatomy
Arteries Veins Capillaries They carry blood away from the heart (they are efferent vessels) They carry blood back to (toward) the heart (they are afferent vessels They connect the arteries with the veins Blood Vessels Pulmonary veins Pulmonary arteries
Lumen Endothelium Tunica media Tunica externa It lines the blood vessel and is exposed to blood. It is simple squamous epithelium overlying. a basement membrane Basement membrane It consists of smooth muscle, collagen, and elastic tissue. It consists of loose connective tissue that often merges with that of neighboring blood vessels, nerves, or other organs. They are small vessels that supply blood to at least the outer half of the larger vessels. Vasa vasorum Nerve Tunica interna The Vessel Wall
Veins have a greater capacity for blood containment than arteries. Veins have thinner and flaccid walls and contain less muscular and elastic tissue than the arteries, that is why they can expand easily. In large arteries, blood pressure averages 90 to 100 mm Hg, whereas in veins it averages about 10 mm Hg. Veins, therefore, do not require thick, pressure resistant walls.

Inferior mesenteric v. Superior mesenteric v. Splenic v. Hepatic portal v. Gastric vv. The hepatic portal system all the blood draining from the abdominal digestive tract, as well as from the pancreas, gallbladder and spleen The hepatic portal system gives the liver first claim to the nutrients before the blood is distributed to the rest of the body It also allows the blood to be cleansed of bacteria and toxins picked up from the intestine The Hepatic Portal System Hepatic veins
