Abstract

The physiology of the venous circulation has, in comparison to that of the arterial, received very little consideration. It has been looked upon as a circulation carried on in a system of inert, elastic tubes, carrying the blood back to the heart from the periphery and without much, if any, physiological action on the part of the venous wall in the process. We are in the habit of looking to the heart, the arterial tension and the skeletal muscle action as being the forces driving the blood through the venous system.
