External Jugular Vein: The external jugular vein is a major systemic vein in the neck. The paired external jugular vein carries deoxygenated blood and carbon dioxide away from the face and neck back toward the heart. Blood flows through a variety of smaller veins in the face and neck and drains into the external jugular vein then flows into the subclavian vein in the thorax.
Conditions that can afflict the external jugular vein include thrombophlebitis, thrombosis, and trauma.
