Fan Correction: Veins Don't Carry Oxygenated Blood! - CONAN on TBS

by Team Coco • 268,275 views

Another foolish fan calls Conan out on his knowledge of his own circulatory system. Submit YOUR correction at http://teamcoco.com/hahaifoundanerror

I might also add that veins and arteries can be surgically rerouted and/or transplanted in cases where the structure of the circulatory system is failing or injured. Furthermore, calling someone a nerd because s/he is smart is not an insult. You only result in publicly demonstrating your personal insecurities in the realm of education.

+Cailan Shannon AV fistula for people on long term hemodialysis will raise the oxygen content of venous blood significantly.

The difference between veins and arteries is not in whether or not it's oxygenated, but rather if it's coming to or from the heart. Veins can be oxygenated or deoxygenated. Same with arteries. Also, the umbilical vein carries oxygenated blood from the placenta to the fetus, while the umbilical artery carries deoxygenated blood from the fetus to the placenta.

Yes, but he specifically said to the brain.

And what about the width of the muscular wall being wider in the arteries? And what about Portal venous systems?

I like how Andy points out the doctor knows about cable even when that video was supposed to take place cable tv didnt really exist. The first basic cable tv network was created in 1976.

Sure it's been said before but this woman is...DEAD WRONG
Report spam or abuse
That one he actually could have proven her wrong without the jokings. Veins are defined by their structure and also by that fact that they carry blood towards the heart. -in the prenatal state all veins carry oxygenated blood(compared to arteries) -the pulmonary veins do the same -an some theoretically possible stuff but they have no practical meanings
Report spam or abuse
So the fan was wrong in the general sense but correct in the specific case where Conan was speaking about an eye vein.
Report spam or abuse
Megan is actually wrong, MOST veins don't carry oxygenated blood while MOST arteries carry oxygenated blood; however it is not the case for the pulmonary veins and arteries. It's taught in anatomy & physiology course. The more accurate definitions for veins and arteries are the direction of blood flow instead of the kind of blood they carry.
Report spam or abuse
It's not whether arteries or veins carry oxygenated or deoxygenated blood. The difference is that arteries are blood vessels that carries blood that flows AWAY from the heart. Veins on the other hand carry blood that goes TO the heart. Since most arteries contain oxygenated blood and most veins have deoxygenated blood, people found it easier to differ the two blood vessels with the blood they carry. But there are exceptions.  In the heart, Pulmonary ARTERY actually carries DEOXYGENATED blood to the lungs to get oxygenated, then the blood that is OXYGENATED in the lungs goes back to the heart via pulmonary VEIN. Makes sense? Even tho pulmonary Artery contains deoxygenated blood, it still goes AWAY from the heart so it's still an artery. That also applies to the pulmonary VEIN despite carrying blood with o2, it goes to the heart so it's a vein.

The pulmonary artiery carries de oxygenated blood and the pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood also not all oxygen in the blood is defused in capillary bed some while having less veins do carry oxygen in the blood

Veins do have leftover oxygen, just not as much as the arteries the blood came from, obviously.

Veins carry de-oxygenated blood, except for the Pulmonary Vein I believe.

lol anyone that took human anatomy/physiology would know that THAT IS NOT HOW YOU CLASSIFY VEIN VS ARTERY it's whether it's coming from the heart or into the heart seriously, i think i actually learned it in high school as well it's a basic knowledge...

Conan could have said that "no.. you are wrong.. not all veins carry deoxygenated blood.. pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood.. veins just carry blood toward the heart.. and yes these veins around my eye carry blood back to my heart.. .. .. and NOW based on this film when i was a child.. this will explain the rest.."

Unnecessary footage, the girl was wrong anyway. The pulmonary artery which comes from the lungs and goes to the heart does indeed carry oxygenated blood. There are many others.

At least she's really cute

She is cute alright, with her glasses and all. But then again I have a thing for girls who wear glasses. So it is subjective.

The actual difference between veins and arteries is that veins carry blood to the heart and arteries carry blood away from the heart. Arteries are also more muscular and stronger. Because of this, there are a very few veins that carry oxygenated blood - the pulmonary veins, which head from the lungs (which just oxygenated them) to the heart, and the umbilical veins, which carry blood from mother to fetus (and thus to the fetus's "heart".) For most practical purposes, an average joe can ascribe to the generalization that veins don't carry oxygenated blood.

Nice, a hottie!  What's up blue eyes?
Report spam or abuse
come on my fellow nerds. how can you all talk about pulmonary veins when there is a hottie in the video! just look at her blue eyes and beautiful face! the way she talks and her smiles! damn..
Report spam or abuse
She blew it on two counts. First of all, she should have mentioned that this fact is why the vein near Conan's eye is blue, the color of de-oxygenated blood. Secondly, she should have observed that the skin of the face is actually very far removed from the system that engages the brain, and so there is no "brain blood" in the face in any case, oxygenated or otherwise. Was a nice try, though.  :^)
Report spam or abuse
+Madelyn Warren That's still wrong. The only reason a vein appears blue is due to how light acts with the whole having to go through and reflect against the skin, vein and blood setup. Could all of you just google this please?

Report spam or abuse
well the pulmonary vien carries oxygenated blood..
Report spam or abuse
a better excuse would be that the blood that's in the veins will just end up going to the arteries that DO carry oxygen anyways, and that that blood loss from removal of a vein could impact oxygen supplies indirectly.

You could have pointed out the vein that carries blood from the lungs to the heart to be pumped around the body.

If both veins and arteries carried blood away from the body, wouldn't a human's cells expand and explode from being overfed with oxygen or shouldn't they suffocate as they use all the blood within about 10 mins?

stupid bitch, pulmonary veins carry the most oxygenated blood in the body.

There are two circulations, the pulmonary circulation where pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood away from the heart, and pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood to the heart; and the circulation in the rest of the body where arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart, and veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart.

Apparently Conan went back in time and delivered a modern digital camera to that doctor. And possibly supplied the cameraman as well... That or film stock was a hell of a lot better back then than I've been led to believe.

She's wrong. Veins carry blood to the heart and arteries take blood out of the heart. The main difference is the amount of pressure they can stand. Nothing to do with oxigen.
