1

Aorta

Carries oxygen rich blood from the left ventricles to the body

2

Superior vena cava

Brings oxygen-oxygen poor blood from the upper body to the right atrium

3

Right pulmonary vein

Brings oxygen-rich blood from the right lung to the left atrium

4

Right atrium

Accepts oxygen poor blood from the body

5

Right ventricle

Pumps oxygen poor blood to the lungs

6

Tricuspid valve

Prevents back flow of blood as it is pumped from the right atrium to the right ventricle

7

Inferior vena cava

Brings oxygen poor blood from the lower body to the right atrium

8

Pulmonary artery

Carry oxygen poor blood to the lungs

9

Left atrium

Accepts oxygen rich blood from the lungs

10

Left pulmonary vein

Brings oxygen rich blood from the left lung to the left atrium

11

Pulmonary valve

Prevents the back flow of blood as it is pumped from the right ventricle to the pulmonary arteries

12

Mitral valve

Prevents the back flow of blood as it is pumped from the left atrium to the left ventricle

13

Aortic valve

Prevents the back flow of blood as it is pumped from the left ventricle to the aorta

14

Left ventricle

Pumps oxygen rich blood to the body

15

Septum

Prevents the oxygen poor and oxygen rich blood from mixing
