Meet our new aorta character!!! Adorable aorta pin looks bloody cute on you! The aorta sends oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Attached to the heart’s pumping upper left chamber, the aorta loops around then dips into your torso. It’s the body’s biggest blood vessel!
You have been asking for MORE BLOOD MERCH to join our blood drop plush and blood enamel pin forever, and especially the aorta, so we are sorry it took so long. We didn't want aorta to be all alone so we also have... get ready for it...Artery & Vein lapel pin to matchy match with the aorta lapel pin and blood enamel pin.
Aren't they quite the pair? We are super excited for new friends Artery & Vein lapel pin, joined as they are in the oxygen-exchange dance. These two tubes move blood around your body. Arteries carry blood away from the heart and veins carry blood to the heart. Capillaries connect arteries and veins; this is where oxygen and carbon dioxide are swapped!
Blood is a liquid that flows inside every inch of your body through a network of tubes called your circulatory system. Your blood carries fuel, food and messages inside your body. It also provides defense and removes waste.
Your blood visits every single cell, making deliveries and taking out the trash. Your circulatory system is powered by a powerful pump -- your heart! Aorta know better than to make you blood geeks wait but... the wait is over for my blood tech geeks, phlebotomy nerds, and hematology enthusiasts, because this new blood merch drip will drip-drop straight into your veins!
Wherever your blood flows, we thought you'd like to see all our new blood gifts! Have a bloody great day!
