Blood Vessel Types: Arteries, veins, and capillaries. Arteries carry oxygen rich blood away from the heart & toward the organs. Veins carry oxygen poor blood away from the organs and back to the heart & lungs to get re-oxygenated. The capillaries are the connecting blood vessel that travel between arteries and veins, allowing the blood exchange between the two networks.
