Blood vessel anatomy

Description

This topic begins with a brief introduction to the vascular system and its components (arteries, veins and capillaries). An overall schematic diagram illustrates the position of the components in relation to the heart. Layers of the components are described in more detail (e.g. collagen fibres; smooth muscles) and are accompanied by diagrams. The control of blood flow is described; emphasis is on spincters and shunt vessels.
