The heart

HideShow resource information
Pulmonary artery
Pulmonary artery leads blood from the right ventricle into the lungs into capillaries adjacent to the lungs.
1 of 10
Left Atrium
Oxygenated blood from the lungs enters the left atrium through the pulmonary vein. The left atrium leads into the left ventricle via the mitral valve. This leads from the left ventricle into the aorta which is an artery.
2 of 10
mitral valve
Can be known as the bicuspid valve or left atrioventricular. Between each atrium and ventricles are valves that prevent the backflow of blood into the atria when the the ventricles contract
3 of 10
Aortic Valve
Known as the semilunar valves.
4 of 10
left ventricle
Blood passes into the left ventricle, through the aorta and then into the body
5 of 10
right ventricle
Blood passes from the right atrium to the right ventricle and then to the lungs.
6 of 10
Tricuspid valve
A valve that prevents backflow. Can be susceptible to disease
7 of 10
Pulmonary valve
The function of the pulmonary valve is to prevent blood that is leaving the heart via the right ventricle from flowing backwards and so re-entering the heart.
8 of 10
Right atrium
De-oxygenated blood from the body enters the right atrium through the vena carva.
9 of 10
Aorta
The main and largest artery in the human body
