Pulmonary Circuit Diagram
Pulmonary circuit: Diagram of pulmonary circulation. Oxygen-rich blood is shown in red; oxygen-depleted blood in blue. Systemic circulation is the movement of blood from the heart through the body to provide oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body while bringing deoxygenated blood back to the heart.
Pulmonary Circuit. Pulmonary circulation transports oxygen-poor blood from the right ventricle to the lungs, where blood picks up a new blood supply. Then it returns the oxygen-rich blood to the left atrium.
Example Question #1 : Pulmonary And Systemic Circuits. The right atrium and ventricle transfer deoxygenated blood to the lungs via the pulmonary arteries. Blood is oxygenated and returned to the left artium via the pulmonary veins. The left ventricle then pumps the oxygenated blood to the body, exiting the heart through the aorta.
