How to Care Your Vein
Many of the internal processes in our body occur without our conscious awareness. Our stomach digests food, lungs take in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.Our kidneys filter our blood each and every day through vein. Internal organs and systems work automatically.It is likely that whole days go by when we don’t pause to think of our insides at all. However, one major bodily system may catch our attention more often because we can feel it working in certain parts of our body. Our pulse, rhythmic pulsing of blood through our arteries, is a constant reminder that, at any given moment, blood is coursing through each and every part of us.
Our bloodstream is part of our circulatory system, which consists of the heart and blood vessels that carry blood throughout our body. In this lesson, we will learn more about the important vessels that return blood back to the heart after traveling to our body parts. Within our bodies, there is a massive network of blood vessels with blood racing from our heart to all parts of our body and then back.
Imagine an interconnected pipeline with a constant flow of fluid. Blood vessels are the pipeline and blood is the fluid. However, in this example, there is no endpoint. The blood circulates continuously, hence the name circulatory system. There are several different types of blood vessels, with differing size, strength, and composition.
Veins categorized into four main types – pulmonary, systemic, superficial, and deep veins.
- Pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium of the heart.
- The Systemic veins return oxygen-depleted blood from the rest of the body to the right atrium of the heart.
- Systemic veins return oxygen-depleted blood from the rest of the body to the right atrium of the heart.
- Superficial veins are located close to the surface of the skin and are not located near a corresponding artery.
- Deep veins are located deep within muscle tissue and are typically located near a corresponding artery with the same name.
Arteries are the strong, elastic vessels that take oxygenated blood from the heart out to parts of our body to deliver oxygen. Arterial blood is a rich red color, due to the oxygen bonded with hemoglobin on the red blood cells. After the oxygen has been dropped off, the blood is returned back to the heart by the veins. This blood is not only deoxygenated, but it has also picked up carbon dioxide. This gives venous blood a dark red, almost purplish color. We can often see veins just under our skin, where they can tend to have a bluish tint.
Veins serve a critical function within our bodies. When blood has been pumped by the heart to various parts of the body, it must return back to the heart. In a metaphorical sense, veins are the return portion of a round-trip plane ticket. The veins serve the purpose of delivering the blood, now bluish in color, back to the right atrium (chamber) of our heart. In the heart, blood will collect more oxygen and prepare to be pumped back out through arteries. This is a cycle that continues as long as a person is living.
Veins can vary greatly in size. The largest vein in the body is called the vena cava, which is Latin for ‘hollow vein.’ There are two sections of the vena cava, one below the heart and one above it. The section above the heart is called the superior vena cava, and it returns blood from the head, neck, chest, and upper limbs back to the heart. You can remember this term by associating the word ‘superior’ with ‘above.’
The lower section is called the inferior vena cava, and it returns blood from all other parts of the body back to the heart. Similar to the aforementioned example, ‘inferior’ can be associated with ‘below.’ As we get farther away from the heart and toward extremities, veins branch out and get smaller and smaller. The smallest veins are called venules.
How to Care
Every parts in our body is important for our life , if anybody lose any parts from his body then he can understand what was that ! our god gives all of the body parts for our helps only.
In Aging causes your veins to lose some of their elasticity, the valves inside your veins stop functioning correctly and the result will be lose stability with your bodies’ movement, this can be cause varicose veins to develop or sometimes may be problem like high or low blood pressure.
Biologically Women are more likely to develop varicose veins; this may be because of the hormonal changes female bodies usually experience, such as menopause and pregnancy.
If you stand or sit still for long stretches of time, you may be at greater risk for developing varicose veins. Staying in position for too long puts extra pressure on your veins to pump blood to your heart.
If you have had previous trauma or injuries, such as blood clots, you are at higher risk of Leg trauma. Extra weight will put undue pressure on your legs and circulatory system causes may be getting pain in your vein.
Maintain your healthy eating habits.
Avoid foods with high calorie and low nutrition content, Eat a diet that’s high in fiber, some studies suggest a relationship between low-fiber diets and the development of varicose veins, Diets high in fiber also help lower your cholesterol and may reduce blood pressure. Avoid added raw salt when you eat. Reducing your salt intake can help reduce swelling in varicose veins also It may reduce your body’s water retention .
Do your exercise regularly, Walking and jogging improve circulation in the legs, and proper circulation helps ward off the development and worsening of varicose veins, exercise also reduces overall high blood pressure and strengthens your entire circulatory system. Running is also helpful in preventing the appearance of varicose veins, its improves circulation in your legs.
Reduce or Quit smoking, Smoking contributes to many health problems, many studies have shown that the high blood pressure associated with smoking also helps cause varicose veins, smoking is also associated with “lower limb venous insufficiency,” where blood does not flow properly and pools into the legs.
Please Avoid taking high-estrogen birth control pills (try to self-controlling with your partner), Long-term use of birth control pills containing high levels of estrogen and progesterone may increase your risk of developing varicose veins.
Avoid long time standing, long time standing in one place increases venous pressure in the legs and feet. Over time, this pressure weakens the blood vessel walls. This will worsen existing varicose veins and could contribute to the development of new ones, try to walk around at least every 30 minutes.
Sit properly when you work.Sit up straight always also not good you need to change your sitting style after 15 to 30 minutes as you feel comfort. Good posture improves circulation, while crossed legs may restrict blood flow to and from the legs.Avoid sitting for long stretches of time without taking a break.
Get up every half-hour or so to stretch or walk around. Some people sitting with style and sometimes somebody criticize if one person sitting and her foot is moving un-necessary – This is also good for blood circulation( may be not stylish or unwanted moving but good for blood circulation ).
