Your body has arteries and veins inside your body and they run from the top of your head to the toes on your feet.
Arterial blood is red richly mixed with oxygen that flow from the heart to each part of the body to provide oxygen and nutrients.
The blood that flow through your veins is actually blue and this blood is oxygen poor but returns to the heart to be re-oxygenated.
Millions of Americans die or have major complications from blood clots that stop the blood flow and cause pulmonary embolism or deep venous thrombosis.
If you have been diagnosed with any type artery or vein disorder you need to talk to your doctor about having a ultrasonography done to determine if the valves, arteries and veins are working normally.
A ultrasonography is painless, noninvasive test that uses sound waves and usually only takes about thirty minutes to complete the test.
