  The Anatomy and Physiology of Capillaries. By Prof. August Krogh. (Silliman Memorial Lectures.) Pp. xvii + (New Haven: Yale University Press; London: Oxford Author: E. H. Starling. CAPILLARIES. Capillaries carry blood from arterioles to venules. Their walls are only one cell in thickness; capillaries are actually the extension of the endothelium, the simple squamous lining, of arteries and veins (see Fig. 13–1). Some tissues do not have capillaries; these are the epidermis, cartilage, and the lens and cornea of the eye.

  Capillaries measure μm in diameter and are only one cell thick. Capillaries connect arterioles and venules and enable the exchange of water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and many other nutrients and waste substances between blood and surrounding tissues. There are three main types of capillaries: continuous, fenestrated, and sinusoidal. Blood hydrostatic pressure is the force exerted by the blood confined within blood vessels or heart chambers. Even more specifically, the pressure exerted by blood against the wall of a capillary is called capillary hydrostatic pressure (CHP), and is the same as capillary blood pressure. CHP is the force that drives fluid out of capillaries and. Eventually, the smallest arteries, vessels called arterioles, further branch into tiny capillaries, where nutrients and wastes are exchanged, and then combine with other vessels that exit capillaries to form venules, small blood vessels that carry blood to a vein, a . Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels –Walls consisting of a thin tunica interna, one cell thick –Allow only a single RBC to pass at a time –Pericytes on the outer surface stabilize their walls There are three structural types of capillaries: continuous, fenestrated, and sinusoids Dr. Naim Kittana, PhD
