The pulmonary veins carry the blood to the:

Left Atrium of The Heart

15

From the left atrium, the blood passes through the:

Bicuspid Valve (Mitral Valve)

16

From the lungs, the blood flows through the pulmonary veins to the left atrium. Then it flows through the bicuspid valve into the:

Left Ventricle

17

From the left ventricle, the blood passes through another set of:

Semilunar Valves (Aortic)

18

From the aortic semilunar valves, the blood flows into the main artery:
