Vein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (504 words)
In biology, a vein is a blood vessel which carries blood toward the heart.
As an exception, in the pulmonary circulation oxygenated blood from the lungs is taken to the left part of the heart by pulmonary veins.
Veins are used medically as points of access to the blood stream, permitting the withdrawal of blood specimens (venipuncture) for testing purposes, and enabling the infusion of fluid, electrolytes, nutrition, and medications.
Arm (1333 words)
The median nerve, nerve origin C5-T1, which is a branch of the lateral and medial cords of the brachial plexus.
The artery is in between the median nerve and the tendon of the biceps muscle in the cubital fossa.
There is a connecting vein between the two, the median cubital vein, which passes through the cubital fossa and is clinically important for venepuncture (withdrawing blood).
