Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more

Could my arteries rupture if my BP gets too high? have prob. that makes BP super high after small things and pulse gets super strong in neck
Not very likely: You are young and presumably healthy. Arteries don't just rupture even with very high blood pressure unless they are diseased. Highly unlikely at your age. It does sound like you might benefit from some counseling or perhaps some biofeedback training to help control these exaggerated responses that you have. ...Read more

Use your fingers: If you are taking your own pulse take your second & third finger; place them over your neck below your chin and slide them to your side (opposite side of the hand you are using is easier) until you feel a pulsation. You will need to put a firm pressure to feel it. Be careful to take pulse at the neck one side at a time as if you do both sides at the same time you could get dizzy. ...Read more
Thin Skinned?: It means you're alive. It could also mean your heart is pumping hard to compensate for a heart valve leak. But don't freak. A lot of people can see their arteries pulsing, especially in the neck or wrist or even the groin area. but if you are concerned go see a doc and it'll be figured-out pretty quick. If you have any weird symptoms like shortness of breath or chest pain, that would up the ante. ...Read more

Do the arteries constrict when u get a panic attack or do they enlarge? if u feel ur pulse much clearer in ur neck when training, do they enlarge?
Is it ever at all possible to feel a pulse when touching a vein? Or is this only specific to arteries? Is there an artery near the small saphenous?
Yes: Since most veins, which drain de-oxygenated blood from the tissues, run close to arteries, supplying oxygenated blood to the same areas, it is quite common to feel arterial pulse when pressing on a vein. Arteries close to small saphenous vein include posterior tibial on the lower part and poplitial in the upper part og leg. ...Read more

Why do u feel a much stronger pulse in the left side of your chest? which artery are there? it is not the heart area im taking about...
I have been pressing my carotid arteries every day for a year now to check my pulse. Sometimes just light but also hard. What's the effects? Clots?
Not too hard!: If you compress your carotid too vigorously, you can initiate a reflex that slows your heart and, in the extreme, could even cause you to pass out. (unlikely). If you press hard and long, you can interrupt circulation to that side (hemisphere) of your brain and cause damage. If you must check your carotid, press gently and for no more than 15 seconds. ...Read more
No pulse in my radial artery. Is this bad. Have total radial artery occlusion. What does this mean. What exercises can I do to restore circulation?
There are many : Reasons why it happens but the absence of a radial artery may affect your hand significantly or not at all. The anatomy of the arterial system of the wrist and hand has a wide variation. Some have a ulnar artery dependent system, others mixed, others radial dependent. For example: the radial artery is often harvested for coronary grafts, or used for a shunt for dialysis. So more important is why? ...Read more
Should the pressure in the carotid arteries on the right side be roughly the same as on the left side? Right side pulse is weak. What could cause this
Arteries: Yes,the pressure or strength of the pulsation in each carotid artery should be the same unless there is a blockage reducing the pressure in the one with a weak pulsation. However this would be unusual in your age bracket. If you have further concerns have your physician examine and advise you. ...Read more
It can be.: If you are able to see your carotid artery pulse in your neck, you're likely quite thin. Rarely a prominent, pulsatile carotid artery in the neck is a sign of a carotid artery aneurysm, an abnormal englargement of the artery which can lead to problems such as stroke or rupture/bleeding. This would be rare in a 43 year old without a history of trauma. See a vascular surgeon to be sure. ...Read more
Doctors please advise. Is it ok to press your carotid to ck pulse if you have carotid artery disease?
Ok but: There is truly no association between pressing on the carotid artery and increase risk of stroke in my opinion except if the patient has more than fifty percent stenosis and he is symptomatic because in this special situation the plaque in the carotid artery can be friable and pressing on it can cause another attack. ...Read more
What is biphasic pulse? Does this mean if you feel double beat in your carotid artery you have HCM? How is it detected? Thanks
Two peaks/heart beat: instead of just one, aka pulsus bisferiens: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulsus_bisferiens. HCM, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is only one possible basis via subaortic stenosis. Detection is normally by palpation (feel) which requires practice & comparison with a normal pulse in a similar location to appreciate. An easily felt double-pulse in carotid is more likely due to a premature beat. ...Read more
I sometimes have a fast pulsation in my neck near carotid artery, but it seems much faster than my actual pulse. Is this normal?
Carotid Artery: You should see a Vascular Surgeon immediately to have your carotids evaluated. A swishing sound or large pulsation is sometimes heard when carotid artery disease is present. One of the most common causes of stroke is carotid stenosis.Your Vascular Surgeon can offer the latest technology and methods to address any potential arterial problems. ...Read more
