blood capillaries

blood capillaries

Etymology: AS, blod + L, capillaris, hairlike
the tiny vessels that convey blood between the arterioles and the venules and allow for internal respiration and nourishment of tissues. The capillary wall generally has a thickness of one cell, permitting easy diffusion of gas molecules; occasional tiny openings permit diapedesis of leukocytes, distribution of nutrients to the tissues supplied by the capillary network, and collection of waste products released by the cells.
