Subclavian Artery
either of two arteries that supply blood to the neck and arms
Renal Artery
an artery originating from the abdominal aorta and supplying the kidneys and adrenal glands and ureters
Subclavian Vein
carries deoxygenated blood from the arms to the superior vena cava
Iliac Vein
blood vessel that drains deoxy blood from the legs and carries it to the inferior vena cava
Coronary Vein
carries deoxygenated blood from the heart muscle back to the right atrium
Renal Vein
blood vessel that carries blood away from the kidney and toward the heart
Iliac Artery
one of the large arteries supplying blood to the pelvis and legs
Jugular Vein

Antigens

Antibodies
Protein that is produced by lymphocytes and that attaches to a specific antigen.

Pulmonary Circulation
circulation from the right side of the heart to the lungs and back to the left side of the heart
Systemic Circulation
pathway of circulation between the heart and the rest of the body except the lungs
Fetal Circulation
Oval Opening, Arterial Duct, Umbilical Arteries, Venous Duct
Oval Opening
an opening between the two atria, this opening is covered by a flap of tissue that acts as a valve
Arterial Duct
the connection between the pulmonary artery and the aorta, directs blood away from lungs into systemic circulation
Umbilical Arteries and Vein
vessels that travel to and from the placenta, leaving waste and receiving nutrients
Venous Duct
receives blood from the umbilical vein and directs it to the inferior vena cava
B lymphocytes
form in the bone marrow and release antibodies that fight bacterial infections
T lymphocytes
provide cell-mediated immunity and are processed by the thymus gland.
