Blood Flow Diagram
What is a Circulatory System Diagram. Systemic Circulation: After receiving oxygenated blood from the lungs the arteries of the systemic circulation system take the oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. The veins of the systemic circulation system take the then deoxygenated blood from the body back to the heart.
Blood flows through the heart in the following order: 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.
Blood flows through a specified set of pathways called blood vessels. The organ which is involved in pumping blood to different body parts is the heart. Blood cells, blood plasma, proteins, and salts together constitute the human blood. The composition of blood are:
