Blood flow through the heart

By EveNew
  • Right Atrium

    after the deoxygenated blood enters the vena cava it then goes throught the right atrium.
  • Superior/ Inferior Vena Cava

    Deoxygenated blood from the body goes back to the heart and enters through the vena cava.
  • Tricuspid Valve

    the deoxgenated blood goes through the tricuspid valve located between the right atrium and right ventricle.
  • Right ventricle

    After flowing through the tricuspid valve, the deoxygenated blood then enters the right ventricle
  • Pulmonic valve

    The deoxgenated blood then leaves the right ventricle and goes through another opening called the pulmonic valve.
  • Pulmonary artery

    The deoxygenated blood passes through the pulmonic valve and then enters the pulmonic artery. The pulmonic artery is the only artery that sends deoxygenated blood away from the heart.
  • Lungs

    After the deoxygenated blood enters the pulmonary artery it then flows to the lungs where it the blood is then oxygenated.
  • Pulmonary veins

    Takes oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart.
  • Left Atrium

    Then the oxygenated blood from the pulmonary veins enter the left atrium
  • Mitral/bicuspid valve

    After the blood flows throught the left atrium it then has to pass through the mitral valve between the left atrium and the left ventricle.
  • Left Ventricle

    After the oxygenated blood flows through the mitral valve it then enters the left ventricle
  • Aortic valve

    The oxygenatedblood then has to pass through another opening called the aortic valve.
  • Aorta

    Then finally the oxygenated blood is taken to the aorta which is the largest artery in the body. The aorta then send s the oxygenated blood to the body both lower and upper.
