The largest blood vessels are arteries and veins, which have a thick, tough wall of connective tissue and and many layers of smooth muscle cells (Figure ).The wall is lined by an exceedingly thin single sheet of endothelial cells, the endothelium, separated from the surrounding outer layers by a basal by: Start studying Chapter The Cardiovascular System: The blood vessels (book).

Inflammatory Diseases of Blood Vessels [Gary S. Hoffman, Cornelia M. Weyand, Carol A. Langford, Jorg J. Goronzy] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. In recent years, considerable progress has been made in understanding the vasculitic diseases, largely due to the introduction of effective treatments for diseases that were once uniformly fatal5/5(3). A. strong, rigid vessels that carry blood under high pressure B. thin, elastic vessels that transport blood under low pressure C. elastic vessels that connect arterioles and venules D. fragile vessels that are prone to rupture. E. strong, elastic vessels that carry blood under high pressure. The arteries, which are strong, flexible, and resilient, carry blood away from the heart and bear the highest blood pressures. Because arteries are elastic, they narrow (recoil) passively when the heart is relaxing between beats and thus help maintain blood arteries branch into smaller and smaller vessels, eventually becoming very small vessels called arterioles. The heart is a complex muscle that pumps blood through the three divisions of the circulatory system: the coronary (vessels that serve the heart), pulmonary (heart and lungs), and systemic (systems of the body), as shown in Figure Coronary circulation intrinsic to the heart takes blood directly from the main artery (aorta) coming from the heart.
BLOOD VESSELS Blood vessels are how blood travels through the body. Whole blood is a fluid made up of red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), platelets (thrombocytes), and plasma. It supplies the body with oxygen. Anatomy of Blood Vessels Review Sheet 32 Microscopic Structure of the Blood Vessels 1. Use key choices to identify the blood vessel tunic described. Key: a. tunica intima b. tunica media c. tunica externa 1. innermost tunic 2. bulky middle tunic contains smooth muscle and elastin 3. its smooth surface decreases resistance to blood flowFile Size: 2MB. Blood is carried through the body via blood vessels. An artery is a blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart, where it branches into ever-smaller vessels. Eventually, the smallest arteries, vessels called arterioles, further branch into tiny capillaries, where nutrients and wastes are exchanged, and then combine with other vessels. The Cardiovascular System: Blood Vessels and Circulation. By the end of this section, you will be able to: Compare and contrast the three tunics that make up the walls of most blood vessels. Distinguish between elastic arteries, muscular arteries, and arterioles on the basis of structure, location, and function.
