What is the difference between pulmonary vein and artery?

Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart, while veins carry oxygen-depleted blood back to the heart. The pulmonary veins transport oxygenated blood back to the heart from the lungs, while the pulmonary arteries move deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs.)

Where does the right pulmonary vein go?

Initially there are three vessels for the right lung, but the veins from the middle and upper lobes of the right lung tend to fuse together to form two right pulmonary veins. The right pulmonary veins pass behind the right atrium and another large blood vessel known as the superior vena cava.

Are pulmonary veins right?

The right superior pulmonary vein drains the right upper and middle lobe. The right inferior pulmonary vein drains the right lower lobe. The anatomical relationship of the junction between the pulmonary veins and the epicardium of the left atrium is different depending on the person.

Which artery supplies the lungs with blood?

The pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood at low pressure. They supply 99% of the blood flow to the lungs and participate in gas exchange at the alveolar capillary membrane. The bronchial arteries carry oxygenated blood to the lungs at a pressure six times that of the pulmonary arteries.
