Subclavian Artery

We just learned about the External Carotid Artery.

We've learned that the aorta carries oxygenated blood from the heart, up to the aortic arch and then to the carotid arteries to bring blood to the neck and head.

The aortic arch also has two other arteries called the left and right subclavian arteries.

They carry the oxygenated blood to your left and right arms.
