What are Veins?

Veins carry blood to the heart. The blood in veins is typically low in oxygen and high in carbon dioxide, as it has already passed through the body's tissues and is on its way back to the lungs and heart to be re-oxygenated and re-circulated. Veins are typically larger and less muscular than arteries and have thinner walls. There are several types of veins, including superficial veins, deep veins, and venous sinuses.
