Palmar Arch

We know that the subclavian artery in the chest goes to the axillary artery in the armpit and then the brachial artery in the upper arm, then the ulnar and radial arteries in the forearm.

After that the radial and ulnar arteries go to the deep palmar arch and the superficial palmar arch which both bring blood to your hand.

(from: wikipedia - superficial palmar arch)
