Arteries have thicker wall as compared to arteriole and veins.
Arteries are blood vessels, the network of pathways through which the oxygenated blood travels away from the heart to various cells, tissues and organs of the human body.
- Arteries have thick walls and are situated superficially in comparison to other blood vessels.
- This is due to the fact that these blood vessels are responsible for transporting oxygenated blood across the body under high pressure.
- If the walls of these blood vessels are thinner, they will be weakened, resulting in blood loss from blood vessel rupture.
