The venous system is aimed to drain tissues, to modulate thermoregulation, and to refill the heart regardless of posture or muscular activity. The organs of the venous system are the pathways that transport the blood from microcirculation to the right atrium, and the pumps, respectively cardiac, respiratory and valvulo-muscular, that move it. This article revises the physiological mechanisms of blood distribution and blood motion within the venous system.


KEY WORDS: Hemodynamics - Veins - Blood circulation
