Which blood vessels carry oxygenated and deoxygenated blood?

The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle into the lungs for oxygenation. The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs into the left atrium where it is returned to systemic circulation. The aorta is the largest artery in the body.

Similarly one may ask, which blood vessels carry oxygenated blood?

Arteries always carry blood away from the heart and veins always carry blood back to the heart. Remember: The pulmonary arteries carry deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs. The pulmonary veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium.

What are vessels that carry oxygenated blood?

All arteries carry oxygenated blood EXCEPT for the pulmonary artery (the pulmonary artery carries de-oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs). The pulmonary vein also carries oxygenated blood (from the lung back to the heart).
