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

Another foolish fan calls Conan out on his knowledge of his own circulatory system. Submit YOUR correction at

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. 
Wrong! Pulmonary veins!
Actually during gestation the umbilical vein also supplies oxygenated blood to the fetus. So two examples.
Funny how every fucking comment says that she's wrong. Two options: 1. You're all doctors. 2. You looked it up on wikipedia and now trying to tell everybody that you absolutely knew it and the girl is dumb. You didn't know it as well, fuckhead loudmouths! Get a life!
3. we studied the basic biology and here is one for you, 'apply cold water to burned area'.
Well I.m a First Responder and E.M.T. and I went through half of L.P.N. school. The pulmonary vein and the pulmonary artery are the only ones that work opposite of the rest of your veins and arteries. .
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.
The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated from the lungs to the heart as well
OMG. The way she says HEART. Just melts my HEART.
Pulmonary vein look it up bitch!
+Taven It's OK to be racist, but at least try to be discrete about it.
Which is the only exception to the rule.
Yes, but it wouldn't be that funny isn't it?
Sure it's been said before but this woman is...DEAD WRONG
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.
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.
I learned this in 6th grade
video was around at that time..  I remember how the BBC (in the 60's) taped over most of the classic shows they recorded over the 15 years previous to save like $20 by reusing each tape.
Veins do have leftover oxygen, just not as much as the arteries the blood came from, obviously.
1:27 janice from friends is among the audience?
OxyGENAted, NOT oxyNEGAted as she keeps saying! holy shit, shes kinda cute, but fuck how about trying to pronounce oxygenated like yur not halfway down a crate of winebottles!! 
The girl is a newscaster material.
Veins carry de-oxygenated blood, except for the Pulmonary Vein I believe.
As my 2nd favorite segment, this Fan Correction was pretty weak in terms of the response. BTW, my favorite segment is Basic Cable "Name that Tune", you know, in case you wondered.
Nice, a hottie!  What's up blue eyes?
conan's a funny cunt
She is hot...or I'm just extremely lonely
How does the blood get back out?
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
Wow who knew Jodie Foster new so much about veins.
I almost feel bad but a high school biology class would rapidly dispel the belief that veins do not carry oxygenated blood...
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.
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
I think they were taking about a blood vessel in Conan face so she is partially right
Veins means going back, pulmonary or coronary they are going back to its organs name
She is HOT! period.
1:48 you can see how hard it is for him not to laugh
I think she won...
well the pulmonary vien carries oxygenated blood..
She is pretty AND smart! awesome :D
She isn't smart at all. She was dead wrong about the whole thing.
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.." 
Conan says smart things like that from time to time and always makes it funny.. it's all in the delivery :)
Pulminary vein has oxygen because it leaves the lungs and goes to the heart
Conan making his nerd impression is soo f'n great!
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.
Was that Tina Fey as "Young Conan's" mom?
That was so enlightening Conan is a medical mystery in more ways than one . 
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.
hahaha that was an error
I am in the sixth grade and I know you were wrong...
I didn't, and I know how sex feels like, I win.
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..
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? 
Pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood ,, the definition of vein is vessels carrying blood BACK to the heart !!
and umbilical veins as well :)
Pulmonary veins do carry oxygenated blood but these veins ain't located under the eyes...They are connected from the lungs to the heart
correction: (I know he won't see it but maybe someone can enter it for me) when you were saying to enter it with the title "hahaifoundanerror," you said "haha I FIND a error. I got you this time Conan. the proof is I. the pudding! ( whatever that means) but yeah just watch this video and you will see
stupid bitch, pulmonary veins carry the most oxygenated blood in the body.
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.  :^)
+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?
+Rachamacha Or, you know, pay attention in Biology class...
this segment from conan is getting fucking stupider and stupider
Ok so what happens to all his deoxygenated blood?
It goes back into his penis
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.
That kid looks so much like Conan! Same facial structure with the ginger hair.
You should have just said you had a pulmonary vein in your face. That's slightly possible.
Lol Haha got you now!
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 looks like a female version of daniel radcliffe
also... systemic veins also carry oxygen, not in the same content/saturation than systemic arteries tho
Arteries carry blood away from the heart and veins carry blood toward the heart .
IN a fetus. We have all been a fetus once -.- And once you're a newborn it takes a couple of days until your system changes to the one we all have now.
If his veins carried oxygenated blood, his organs will probably be dead
Conan is so snobby about TBS. They gave you work & this is how you repay him!
Um, what about the pulmonary veins?
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.
Veins carry less oxygenated blood not deoxygenated.
I doubt that thing under his eye is a pulmonary vein.
what exactly is the purpose of these stupid responses from conan?
The way she speaks reminds me of Gillian Anderson.. I find it exotic and sexy..
i wonder what these people who had their clips shown during the show, get? I mean Conan is being factitious but basically these people are all right.
it doesn't aorta transports oxygenated blood to the rest of your body...ask a 9th grade Biology student
he said her name in the could try that on youtube maybe.
It could be argued that the whole show is a mistake. You know, since Conan was an unwanted baby.
another fan correction: that was not a doctor and that is not his mom
no, she is correct... veins do carry deoxygenated blood, and arteries carry oxygenated blood. But there are some veins that do carry oxygenated blood (Pulmonary veins.) I have studied anatomy and physiology, and that is what the medical standard is.
i have one account you immature bastard. God trolling is so old.. grow up
no, people who carry red haired genes are ALWAYS red haired. Me, Im a genetic scientist/doctor. Please, bro, just no.
this is why you guys don't have your own show! you are missing your funny bones :))
yeah, that's one question she got wrong on her Step 1. She needs to spend less time watching late-night and more time boning up on her cardio-pulmonary. haha
Your first comment received too many negative votes to show. Take the hint. Could it be that that stupid one is erm... you?
