Right atrium

deoxygenated blood enters the heart here, it contains three vessels

Superior vena cava

first vessel deoxygenated blood enters in the Right atrium. Blod then travels to the inferior Vena Cava

Inferior Vena cava

Deoxygenated blood travels from the superior vena cava to here and then on to the coronary sinus

Coronary sinus

deoxygenated blood flows from the infereior Vena Cava to here, then on to the right atrium

Tricuspid valve

valve which is between the Right atrium and the Right ventricle

Right ventricle

Where deoxygenated blood flows through the tricuspid to here and then exits through the pulmonary semilunar valves

pulmonary semilunar valve

deoxygenated blood travels through here from the Right Ventricle and goes to the pulmonary trunk

pulmonary trunk

deoxygenated blood travels to here from the pulmonary semilunar valves to the pulmonary arteries

pulmonary arteries

deoxygenated blood travels from the pulmonary trunk to here then on to the lungs

pulmonary veins

oxygenated blood travels to here from the lungs and then continues on to the left atrium

left atrium

oxygenated blood travels to here from the 4 pulmonary veins and exits through the mitral valve (bicuspid valve)

mitral valve (bicuspid valve)

oxygenated blood comes through here from the left atrium to the left ventricle

left ventricle

this area forms the apex of the heart, it receives oxygenated blood from the mitral valve (bicuspid valve) and it exits through the aortic semilunar valve

aortic semilunar valve

oxygenated blood comes here from the left ventricle and then exits to the ascending thoracic aorta.
