Human Heart Right Ventricle
The right ventricle is one of the heart’s four chambers. It is located in the lower right portion of the heart below the right atrium and opposite the left ventricle.
The heart has two ventricles which are its lower two chambers. These ventricles pump blood from the heart to the body. The heart’s right ventricle receives blood from the corresponding right atrium and pumps that blood to the pulmonary artery.
The right ventricle of the heart receives blood that does not yet have oxygen, and from there it flows to the pulmonary valve and the lungs. In the lungs, it receives new oxygen. The left ventricle pumps blood to the aortic valve. From there, the blood flows to the rest of the body.
