Pathway of Blood ❤️

Pathway of blood ❤️

Interior Vena Cava / Superior Vena Cava to the Right Atrium
Right Atrium to the Tricuspid Valve
Tricuspid Valve to the Right ventricle
Right Ventricle to the Pulmonic Valve
Pulmonic Valve "P.S.L.V" Pulmonary Semi Lunar Valve to the L&R Pulmonary arteries
L&R Pulmonary Arteries to the Lungs
Lungs "Gas exchange" Alveoli to the L&R Pulmonary Veins
L&R Pulmonary Veins to the Left Atrium
Left Atrium to the Bicuspid Valve
Bicuspid Valve " Mitral Valve" to the L Ventricles
L Ventricle to the Aortic Valve
Aortic Valve "A.S.L.V" Aortic Semi Lunor Valve to the Aorta
Aorta to the Body
Carries oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body. Then returns blood back to the heart Systemic circulation
Carries deoxygenated blood away from the right ventricle of the heart to the lungs and returns oxygenated blood to the left atrium and ventricle of the heart Pulmonary circulation
Circulation of blood in the blood vessels that supply the heart muscle Coronary circulation
Alternant circulation around a blocked artery or vein Collateral circulation
The aorta branches off into what two main coronary arteries Right Coronary Artery (RCA), Left Coronary Artery (LCA)
The right side of the heart is smaller because blood only circulates to the lungs
Supplies blood mainly to the right side of the heart and the bottom portion of both ventricles plus the back of the septum RCA Right Coronary Artery
Branches off into the left anterior descending artery (LAD)and circumflex artery (LCX) Left Coronary Artery (LCA)
Supplies blood to the left side of the heart Open the front of the septum. Supplies the strongest portion of the heart through the LAD and LCX LCA left coronary artery
The left side of the heart is larger because blood circulates to the rest of the body
Blockage at the LCA and early part of LED referred to as Widow maker
Supplies blood to the myocardium heart tissue itself Coronary arteries
Delivers oxygenated blood and nutrients to all the heart muscle cells Coronary capillaries
Supplies the majority of oxygenated blood to the ventricular myocardium into the left atrium, left atrial appendage, pulmonary artery, and aortic root LCA and its branches
