The heart is made up of four chambers: two upper chambers known as the left atrium and right atrium and two lower chambers called the left and right ventricles. It is also made up of four valves: the tricuspid, pulmonary, mitral and aortic valves.

blood flow:
1) body
2) inferior/superior vena cava
3) right atrium
4) tricuspid valve
5) right ventricle
6) pulmonary arteries
7) lungs
8) pulmonary veins
9) left atrium
10) mitral or bicuspid valve
11) left ventricle
12) aortic valve
13) aorta
14) body.
Locate and identify the paranasal sinuses- paired and symmetrical, air-filled cavities situated around the nasal cavityIdentify and recall the divisions of the pharynx (nasopharynx, oropharynx and laryngopharynx)Nasopharynx: The top part of the throat connects to the nasal cavities (nose) and lets air pass through. Oropharynx: The middle part of the throat connects to the oral cavity Laryngopharynx : The bottom part of the throat is near the larynx (or voice box).Locate and describe the functional anatomy of the larynxto protect the lower respiratory tract from aspirating food into the trachea while breathingIdentify and describe the gross anatomy of the lungs (include hilum structures, borders, lobes, fissures, and surfaces)Outline the basic properties of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and compare them to other components of the body's nervous systemsregulates involuntary physiologic processes including heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, digestion, and sexual arousalOutline the anatomy of the pre-ganglionic and post-ganglionic sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves, and the neurotransmitters and receptors involved- preganglionic neurons have cell bodies that lie within the brainstem or spinal cord and extend either as a cranial nerve or spinal nerve - postganglionic neurons extend from the cell body to an effector
