Flashcards in Venous Return Deck (29):
1

Which three veins supply the heart?

Superior Vena Cava
Inferior Vena Cava
Coronary Sinus

2

How does blood drain from the inferior sagittal sinus?

Inferior sagittal to straight to transverse to sigmoid to internal jugular

3

How does blood drain from the superior sagittal sinus?

Sagittal to transverse to sigmoid to internal jugular vein

4

What does the internal jugular vein drain?

drains the brain, superficial face, and neck

5

Where does the internal jugular vein go?

Unites with the subclavian vein (from arm) to form the large brachiocephalic vein (both left and right), to the superior vena cava

6

What does the external jugular drain?

drains the exterior of the cranium and facial muscles

7

Where does the external jugular vein go?

Empties into the subclavian veins on each side

8

How would blood drain from the superior sagittal sinus to the heart?

superior sagittal sinus to transverse to sigmoid to internal jugular vein to brachiocephalic vein to superior vena cava to heart

9

The largest portion of blood volume at rest, __% is in systemic veins and venules, _% in capillaries, __% in arteries and arterioles, and the rest is in the pulmonary circuit.

60%
5%
15%

10

What do digital veins drain into?

Superficial OR deep palmar arches

11

How are the radial and ulnar veins formed?

By the superficial and deep palmar arches

12

What forms the brachial vein?

At the elbow, the radial and ulnar veins combine to form the brachial vein

13

The brachial vain meets the _____ vein to form the axillary vein

basilic

14

How does the axillary vein drain?

The axillary vein → subclavian vein → brachiocephalic vein → superior vena cava

15

Which vein goes up the lateral aspect of the arm to the axillary vein?

Cephalic vein

16

How does blood drain from the fingers to the heart?

Digital to deep palmar arch to ulnar to brachial to axillary to subclavian to brachiocephalic to superior vena cava

17

What is the median cubital vein?

A short anastomosis between the cephalic and basilic veins that obliquely crosses the anterior bend of the elbow, the cubital fossa. It is visible through the skin and is a common site for drawing blood.

18

What does the dorsal digital vein drain to?

Dorsal arch

19

What does the dorsal arch drain to?

Dorsal pedal vein

20

What does the dorsal pedal drain to?

Anterior tibial vein

21

What does the plantar digital drain to?

Plantar veinous arch

22

What does the plantar veinous arch drain to?

Lateral or Medial plantar veins

23

What do the lateral and medial plantar veins drain to?

Posterior tibial vein

24

What do the anterior and posterior tibial veins drain to?

Popliteal

25

What great vein drains the leg?

Great Saphenous

26

Where does the great saphenous vein drain?

femoral vein, just distal to the inguinal ligament

27

What is the longest vein in the body?
Where does it run?

Great saphenous vein
dorsal foot to upper thigh

28

How does blood drain from the anterior tibial vein to the heart?

Anterior tibial to popliteal to femoral to external iliac to common iliac to inferior vena cava

29

How does blood drain from the dorsal venous arch to the heart?

dorsal venous arch to great saphenous to femoral to external iliac to common iliac to inf. v.c
