Receives deoxygenated blood from the superior and inferior vena cava and pumps it into the right ventricle
Receives blood from the right atrium and then transports the blood to the pulmonary artery
Right Coronary Artery
Network of blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the cardiac muscle tissue
Superior Vena Cava
Brings de-oxygenated blood from parts of the body higher than the heart and returns the blood to the right atrium
Inferior Vena Cava
Receiving blood from the lower extremities and then pumping that blood to the right atrium of the heart.
muscular wall that separates the left and right ventricles of the heart. With the use of the septum all the blood going round the body has been freshly oxygenated
thick middle layer of the heart that forms the bulk of the heart wall and contracts as the organ beats
it prevents chaffing of the heart and damaging its tissues by providing an additional layer of protective tissue and lubricating fluid called serous fluid.
It regulates blood flow from the upper left chamber (left atrium) into the lower left chamber (left ventricle), the heart's main pumping chamber.
ensures that blood flows from the right atrium to the right ventricle by closing an prevented back flow during ventricle systole
1 )bring right ventricular walls closer together during contraction.
2) pull the semilunar valves open to allow ventricular ejection.
3) pull the AV Valves open during atriole systole.
Necessary for the integrity of mitral and tricuspid valve apparatus. They help in the closure and opening of the above said valves during myocardial contractility.
