Hello everyone and welcome. I am Cassie Campbell; I am a video reporter with voyage health. Today we will go on a delightful journey in my mini sub that has been minimized to eight microns long and we will be traveling through the body of a young and healthy lady named Mary. We are going to start at the femoral vein and end up in her lungs. After we have explored her lungs we will then travel through her body to exit out through her nose.
There is something going on and we are in for a surprise. It seems like bacteria has got into Mary’s lower lobe of her right lung. As we already know Mary is healthy, so we need to figure out what is going on. In our next step through Mary’s femoral vein to her lungs we are going to document the invasion. Everyone sit tight and buckle up. This journey maybe a little bumpy. Be very observant of everything around us. I will do my best to go through everything we see but since we are going to see a lot I may miss a few things.
Let’s proceed. We are going to be injected into the femoral vein which is close to the groin area. The femoral vein is parallel with the femoral artery through the upper thigh and pelvic region (Yahoo Health 2013). The femoral vein is one of the largest veins in the body. It returns blood into the leg to the heart through the iliac vein. Before arriving at the iliac vein we have to pass through the inguinal ligament. The inguinal ligament forms a band from anterior superior iliac spine to the pubis ligament. The inguinal ligaments role is to protect the tissue movement between the trunk and the lower extremities (Yahoo Health 2013). We are going to be moving north up Mary’s body. Our next thing we will see is the external iliac vein. This is just a continuation of the femoral vein. If we start from the groin area you will notice that the external iliac vein goes along the pelvic area. Once we arrive at the internal iliac vein which intersects with the external iliac vein;...
