Air Embolus - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical illustration features a series of images describing the passage of an air embolus from the vagina and uterus, to the heart. The illustrations feature the following:
1. Vasculature of the uterus. Arrows indicate the passage of air through the vagina, into the uterus, passing through the uterine wall, and into the complex network of veins surrounding it.
2. Path of air embolus to the heart. Arrows indicate the air travels through the major veins in the pelvis, to the inferior vena cava, up through the torso and into the heart.
3. Air embolus in the heart. Arrows indicate the air entering the heart through the inferior vena cava, passing through the right atrium and accumulating in the right ventricle preventing the heart from functioning normally.
