Arteries Arteries Transport Materials Away from the Heart Arteries Transport Materials Away from the Heart Arteries are thick walled Muscular Vessels Arteries are thick walled Muscular Vessels Arteries connect to Capillaries Arteries connect to Capillaries http://www.coheadquarters.com/PennLibr/MyPhysiology/lect8/figbp01.htm
Capillaries Connect Arteries and Veins Connect Arteries and Veins Thin Walled Vessels Thin Walled Vessels Where Transfer Of Gases, Food, and Waste Products Occur Where Transfer Of Gases, Food, and Waste Products Occur http://users.tpg.com.au/users/amcgann/body/circulatory.html
Veins Returns Blood to Heart Returns Blood to Heart Not as Large or Muscular as Arteries Not as Large or Muscular as Arteries Valves to Prevent Backflow Valves to Prevent Backflow http://www.coheadquarters.com/PennLibr/MyPhysiology/lect8/figbp01.htm
