  1. caudal vena cava
    vein that drains body posterior to diaphragm
  2. cranial vena cava (R&L)
    vein that drains body anterior to diaphragm
  3. Right atrium of the heart
    accepts oxygen-depleted blood from body (via vena cava)
  4. Right ventricle of the heart
    • mostly ventrally located
    • contracts to pump blood to lungs via pulmonary trunk
  5. Left atrium
    accepts oxygen-rich blood from lungs
  6. Left ventricle
    • mostly dorsally located
    • contracts to pump blood to body via aorta
  7. What does the sinus venosus of the shark become in mammals?
    right atrium
  8. What does the conus arteriosus of the shark become in mammals?
    with the ventral aorta becomes the base of the pulmonary trunk and aortic arch
  9. external jugular
    • branches into linguofacial, maxillary cranially and the axillary laterally
    • posteriorly from the cranial vena cava
  10. linguofacial vein
    • from the external jugular
    • runs from heart to face
  11. maxillary vein
    • from external jugular
    • branches to supply blood to jaw region
  12. axillary vein
    • drain pectoral and armpit region
    • from external jugular/cranial vena cava
  13. azygos vein
    branches immediately off the cranial vena cava looping posteriorly to drain the rib region
  14. branchiocephalic artery
    • first branch off the aortic arch
    • splits into right subclavian and paired common carotid arteries
  15. common carotid arteries
    supply head, neck and brain
  16. left subclavian artery
    • second branch off aortic arch
    • (with R) supplies armpit and pectoral region
  17. hepatic portal vein
    blood flow from aorta to gut to liver via hepatic portal vein back to heart via caudal vena cava
  18. aorta
    main artery that supplies blood to organs and tissues posterior to the heart
  19. coeliac artery
    branches off aorta and supplies most of foregut
  20. cranial mesenteric arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off aorta
    • veins merge into hepatic portal vein
    • supply and drain midgut
  21. caudal mesenteric arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off aorta
    • veins merge into hepatic portal vein
    • supply and drain hindgut
  22. renal arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off aorta
    • veins merge into caudal vena cava
    • supply and drain kidneys
  23. testicular and ovarian arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off aorta
    • veins merge into caudal vena cava
    • supply and drain gonads
  24. external iliac arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off common iliac artery
    • veins merge into caudal vena cava
    • go into hind legs as femoral arteries and veins
  25. internal iliac arteries and veins
    • arteries branch off common iliac artery
    • veins merge into caudal vena cava
    • supply muscles and viscera of pelvic region and reproductive organs
