  2. VeinsFormed when venules converge; Composed of three tunics; Return blood to the heart, facilitated by valves in veins and in limbs.


  3. What are the major determinants of Peripheral Resistance?Small-diameter arterioles.


  4. PulseFormed when capillary beds unite. Allow fluids and WBC's to pass from the bloodstream to tissues. Collect blood from capillaries and pass it on to veins.
