Placental Blood Flow

Schematic representation of blood flow through the placenta and surrounding tissue.

Blue and red arrows show the flow directions of oxygenated (red) and deoxygenated (blue) fetal blood through the placental vasculature.

For clarity, only the largest villi are included (for normal placentas terminal villi make up 40% of villous tree volume).

Dashed white arrows show idealized flow lines through intervillous space for maternal blood.

Relative oxygenation states shown by the red to blue colour gradient.

Maternal septa divide vascular spaces into the placental cotyledons.
