    1. Trace the way of a drop of blood from the inferior mesenteric vein into the brachial artery. (name in proper order all structures of the cardiovascualr system.)

    2. Trace the way of a drop of blood from the left cephalic vein to the ascending aorta. (name in proper order all structures of the cardiovascualr system.)

    3. Describe how fetal circulation is different from adult circulation.

    o. Subclavian artery (or perhaps the brachiocephalic artery first; this depends on whether the blood is going to the right or left brachial artery. On the right side, the brachiocephalic branches off the aorta and then gives rise to the subclavian ...

    Solution Summary

    The detailed pathway of a drop of blood from the:
    a) inferior mesenteric vein into the brachial artery
    b) left cephalic vein to the ascending aorta

    This solution also contains a detailed explanation about how the adult circulatory system differs from that of a fetus.
