When you say “artery,” you are referring to the vessels that are responsible for carrying blood. They will make sure that they will remove the blood that is filled with oxygen away from the heart so that it can reach the various parts of the body. It should be remembered that different organs will not be able to survive without blood and oxygen.

Veins, on the other hand, are the ones that are responsible for bringing back the blood that came from various parts of the body to the heart. This will make sure that the blood that has come from various parts of the body will become reoxygenated again because this is needed.

Arteries transport blood from the heart to the lungs to purify it, and it establishes a network of highways that carry oxygenated blood from the heart to other parts of the body. Arterioles are further extensions or branches of the main artery that assist in the transport of blood to smaller places in the body.

The vessels that bring blood forms into different body organs to the heart are called veins. There are two types of threads. These include pulmonary and systematic. The pulmonary carries blood from the lungs to the heart, and the systematic drain the tissues of the body and distributes deoxygenated blood to the heart. Pulmonary and systematic veins may be superficial, or they are deep inside the body.
