Differentiate between arteries & veins?
Asked by | 12th Jul, 2008, 10:51: AM
Arteries carry oxygenated blood to the body from the heart whereas veins bring the deoxygenated blood from body to the heart. (The only exception is pulmonary artey and pulmonary vein).
Arteries are thick walled whereas veins are thin walled.
Arteries are usually deeply situated in the body whereas veins are superficial.
Arteries are more elatic than veins.
In arteries the blood flows in much greater pressure than in veins.
