Ch. 20 Circulatory Pathways. Worksheet 5

Right Subclavian Right Carotid
Two arteries formed by the division of the brachiocephalic trunk.
Coronary Arteries
First branches off the ascending aorta: serve the heart.
Inernal Carotid and Vertebral Arteries
Two paired arteries, serving the brain.
Largest artery of the human body.
Deep Femoral
Artery that serves the posterior thigh
Artery that supplies the diaphragm.
Artery that splits to form the radial and ulnar arteries.
Inferior Mesenteric
Artery that supplies the last half of the large intestine.
Artery generally auscultated to determine blood pressure in the arm.
Internal Illiac
Artery that serves the pelvis.
External iliac becomes this artery on entering the thigh.
Major artery serving the arm.
Superior Mesenteric
Artery that supplies most of the small intestine.
Common Illiac Arteries
Terminal branches of the descending aorta.
Ciliac Trunk
Arterial trunk that has 3 major branches serving the liver, stomach, spleen.
External Carotid
Major artery, serving the tissues external to the skull.
Posterior Tibial, Anterior Tibial, Peronial
Three arteries, serving the leg inferior to the knee.
Artery generally used to feel the pulse at the wrist.
Damage to the left semilunar valve would interfere with blood flow in this artery.
Brachial Cephalic Trunk, Right Common Carotid, Right Subclavian
First, second and third branches of the aortic arch.
Major artery supplying the lower limb.
An intermediary between the subclavian and brachial arteries.
Pulmonary Arteries
Brings deoxygenated blood to the lungs.
Ascending, Aortic Arch, Descending
Parts of the aorta.
Radial, Ulnar
Branches of the brachial artery.
Visceral branches of the thoracic aorta that supply the visceral pleura, esophagus and bronchi of the lungs.
Internal Carotid
Compressing this artery next to the mandible can cause loss of consciousness.
Which common carotid artery arises directly from the aortic arch?
Vertebral Artery
Travels through the transverse foramina of the cervical vertebrae.
Common Carotid
Divides into external and internal branches at the level of Adam's apple.
Popliteal Artery
An artery getting its name from the popliteal fossa at the rear of the knee.
Pericardial Phrenic
A branch of the subclavian artery that issues finer branches to the pericardium.
intercostal arteries
33. Anterior and posterior _______________supply the muscles between the ribs.
Superficial Temporal
You can palpate the pulse on this vessel, immediately laterally to the eyebrow.
Gonadal Arteries
Generic name for the ovarian arteries in females and testicular arteries in males.
The pulse can be palpated on this artery in the femoral triangle of upper medial thigh.
Internal Carotid Artery
Supplies 80% of the brain.
Radial and Ulnar
Arteries supplying the forearm muscles and the fingers.
Aorta. Explanation: A narrowing of the Aorta at different levels of the Aorta causing changes in blood pressure.
39. A congenital cardio-vascular anomaly (frequency 1 in 2000 autopsies), 4-5 times more frequent in males is called the coarctation of the ______________. Explain this condition.
