Laszlo Vass, Ed.D. Version 42-0008-01-01
Please explain the purpose of this lab. Include in your explanation the major concepts you learned and any safety concerns associated with the lab.
Learning the structural and functional differences among arteries, veins, and capillaries.
Identify the major arteries arising from the aorta through observation and dissection of a preserved specimen. identify the major veins draining into the superior and inferior vena cava through observation and dissection of a preserved specimen
Exercise 1: Microscopic Structure of Blood Vessels Observations Sketch your slide in the space below and label the structures…show more content…
Axillary artery supplies blood to the upper arm while brachial artery supply upper arm region below the elbow. Radial artery supply lateral side of forearm, ulnar artery supply medial side of the forearm, and palmar arches supplies hand and fingers (Wright, 1993)
E. List the arteries that branch from the descending abdominal aorta to the femoral artery.
Mesentaric artery, vena cava, abdominal aorta iliolumbar artery and vein common iliac vein, iliac artery, iliac vein.
F. What is the large vein that enters the liver? Where do its branches originate from?
Lower vena cava.
Branch root is another name for lateral root. Originates from the pericycle
G. Name the major artery and vein that deliver and drain blood to and from the kidneys.
The main artery that supplies blood to the kidney is called the renal artery.
H. What are the differences (if any) you noticed between the major arteries and veins in the human versus those in the cat?
In the human, the right common carotid artery branches from the brachiocephalic artery, whereas the left common carotid artery comes directly from the aortic arch. In the cat, both common carotid arteries branch from the brachiocephalic artery.
Do some research on the internet about deep vein thrombosis (DVT). What
