deoxygenated

deoxygenated blood- transmitted via veins to superior and inferior vena cava to R atrium
sent to lungs from R ventricle via pulmonary artery

gas exchange process
oxygenated

transmitted from lungs to L atrium via pulmonary vein

27

the pacemaker; highly specialized neurological tissue impeded in the wall of the right atrium

sinoatrial node

28

neurological tissue in the center of the heart that receives and amplifies the conduction of impulses from the SA node to the bundle of His
