(i) im not sure..but i would have thought that circulation would still be the same but the respiring tissude would not get enough oxygen as the deoxygenated bood and the oxygenated blood would mix together.
(ii) Circulation would be reduced because of back flow of blood.
(iiii) If blood isn't pumped completely out of the heart, it may pool and clot. If a piece of a blood clot in the atria leaves the heart and becomes lodged in an artery in the brain, a stroke results.
