The exchange of energy providing nutrients and water inside us is ceaseless and vital to proper physiological functioning. When we drink water or eat food it is absorbed in the intestines and spread throughout the body via the blood which is ultimately filtered by the kidneys and excreted as urine. The vessels that that carry blood in the body are the arteries and the veins. Arteries are thick walled, muscular, high pressured vessels that carry hydrated and oxygenated blood away from the heart to all the tissues of the body.
After the cells have been nourished, blood returns to the heart through the venous system and is then re-oxygenated in the lungs. There are two systems of veins at work in the legs: The deep system veins are of a large diameter and are situated close to the bone, surrounded by muscle.
The superficial system veins are located in the fat tissue under the skin, and are visible at times. These two systems meet at two junctions, one at the groin and the other behind the knee. They also meet through a series of connecting veins called perforators.
Venous Facts The body has roughly 60, miles of blood vessels. The heart beats approximatelytimes a day, pushing 2, gallons of blood.
The average person takes approximately 9, steps a day. The Second Heart The second heart is a system of muscles, veins, and valves in the calf and foot that work together to push deoxygenated blood back up to the heart and lungs. Vein valves act as trapdoors that open and close with each muscle contraction to prevent the backflow of blood.
When valves become defective or weak the second heart can be overwhelmed, blood can pool in veins, and varicose veins, spider veins, and Chronic Venous Insufficiency CVI can develop.• Reduce heart work load and improve perfusion. • Improve renal function.
