血管統稱為 blood vessel(s) [blʌd ˋvɛs!]

但其中又分動脈, 靜脈, 和微血管

動脈的說法是 artery [ˋɑrtərɪ] / arteries (複數)

靜脈vein(s) [ven]

微血管則是 capillary [ˋkæpəlɛrɪ]

在文學作品裡或大眾文章裡常會用 vein 這個字來指血管這種東西

不過事實上它是靜脈

打點滴時是將藥物注射到靜脈裡

所以 點滴intravenous drip intravenous injection , 簡稱 I.V. / IV

( intravenous [͵ɪntrəˋvinəs] )

這個字裡面的 “ven” 這個部份就是從靜脈 vein 而來的

要講 打點滴就是 have an I.V. injection

比如: The doctor ordered an IV injection for the patient.

He had to stay in the hospital and have an IV injection.
