what comes out of the LV?


3 divisions of aorta




first branch off of the aorta

the right and left coronary arteries

4 branches off of the aorta

coronary (R&L)

brachiocephalic trunk

left common carotid

left subclavian

the brachiocephalic trunk branches into

right subclavian

right common carotid

the right common carotid comes off of the ____________and branches into the ________________

comes off the bc trunk

branches into the int. and ex. carotid

the left common carotid branches into the

left int. and ext. carotid

the internal carotids supply to where?

the opthalmic artery (eye, and cerebral arteries(brain))

the external carotids supply to where?

the face, scalp, larynx, pharynx, mouth

the left subclavian goes

to the left arm

the right subclavian comes off what what and goes where?

off: bc trunk

Branches into: axillary artery

at the elbow the brachial artery comes from where and separates into..?

off: axillary artery

into: radial and ulnar arteries

path of blood from heart to left arm


left subclavian

left axillary

left brachial

left ulnar or radial

path from heart to right arm


bc trunk

right subclavian

r. axillary

r. brachial

r. ulnar or radial

the common carotid comes from where and branches into?

RIGHT: comes from bc trunk goes to int. and ext.

Left: aorta goes into ext. and int.

each subclavian artery separates into a

vertebral artery

the subclavians branch into

axillary arteries

the vertebral arteries are located in the

transverse foramen of the cervical vertebral column

the vertebral arteries merge to form

the basilar artery

basilar artery supplies blood to .......


basilar divides into the

posterior cerebral

posterior cerebral arteries supply blood to

posterior cerebellum

the two internal carotid and basilar are connected

by a ring shaped anastomosis called the circle of willis

thoracic aorta decends into the


pericardial arteries supply the


bronchial arteries supply to the


esophogeal arteries supply the


visceral branches of the thoracic aorta are

pericardial, bronchial, and esophageal

thoracic aorta branches into the

abdominal aorta

first branch off of the abdominal aorta is the

celiac trunk

celiac artery divides into the

hepatic artery

left gastric


hepatic artery supplies blood to

liver and gall bladder

left gastric artery supplies blood to


splenic artery supplies blood to

spleen and pancreas

below the celiac trunk, the abdominal aorta divides into the

superior mesenteric artety

superior mesenteric supplies blood to

small intestine and most of large intestine

supradrenal arteries supply blood to

adrenal glands

renal arteries supply blood to the


gonadal arteries supply blood to the


inferior mesenteric supplies blood to the

last part of the large intestine

abdominal aorta divides into the

left and right common iliac arteries

common iliac arteries divide into the

internal and external iliac

internal iliac artery supplies blood to the






external iliac extends as the

femoral artery

femoral artery becomes the

popliteal artety

popliteal artery becomes the

anterior and posterior tibial arteries

anterior and posterior tibial arteries supply blood to the

leg and foot

cephallic and basilac veins drain the

lateral and medial sides of arms

the _____________ vein connects the basilar and cephallic veins


the main site for blood draw is the

medial cubital vein

radial and ulnar veins merge to form the

brachial vein

brachial vein extends as the

axillary vein

axillary vein drains into the

subclavian vein

the subclavian drains the

entire upper extremity

the superficial veins of the arm are the




external jugular drains

face and scalp

external jugular descends and enters the


brain drains into the

dural venous sinuses

dural venous sinuses drain into the

internal jugular

internal jugular descends

down the neck and into the subclavian

internal jugular and subclavian merge to form the


the brachiocephallic veins merge to form the

superior vena cava

the superior vena cava enters the

RA of the heart

anterior and posterior tibial veins drain

the leg and foot

ant. post. tibial veins merge and form

popliteal vein

popliteal vein continues up the thigh as

the femoral vein

saphenous vein goes

up the medial side of the leg and into the thigh superficially and joins the femoral vein in the groin

the saphenous vein is the

longest vein in the body

the femoral vein continues into the

pelvic region as the external iliac vein

the ex. iliac drains the

lower extremity

internal iliac vein drains the

pelvic viscera (uterus, vagina, rectum, prostate)

int. and ext. iliac veins merge to form the

common iliac vein

the common iliac veins merge to form the

inferior vena cava

what veins drain into the inferior vena cava




inferior vena cava enters

the RA of the heart

hepatic portal vein drains the

stomach, small intestine, large intestine, pancreas, spleen and gall bladder

the hepatic portal vein is caused by the merging of

exterior mesenteric and splenic veins

superior mesenteric vein drains the

small and most of the large intestine

splenic vein drains the

spleen and pancreas

the gastric veins drain

the stomach

the inferior mesenteric vein drains the

last part of the large intestine

hepatic portal vein and common hepatic artery

supplies blood to the liver

the right ascending lumbar vein continues as the

asygos vein

azygos vein drains the

right side of thorax and joins the superior vena cava

left ascending lumbar vein continues as the

hemiazygos vein

hemiazygos vein drains the

left side of the thorax

hemiazygos vein drains INTO the

azygos vein

the left and right coronary arteries supply blood to the


the coronary veins drain into

coronary sinus which empties into the RA

pulmonary trunk emerges from the


pulm. trunk. divides into the

R L pulmonary arteries

lungs are drained by the

pulmonary veins

the pulmonary veins drain into the

LA of the heart
