If you have already understood the anatomy of the human heart, then you must have known that the human heart is the organ that pumps and transport blood from and to our body. To look further about this topic, you can have a look at the labeled blood flow diagrams present in this article. Beginning with the superior and inferior vena cavae and the coronary sinus, the diagram below shows the flowchart that summarizes the flow of blood through the heart, including all arteries, veins, and valves that are passed along the way.
In the blood flow diagram above, you can observe that the human heart is connected with blood vessels coming from around the body. The blood is pumped into the blood vessels through the heart. The heart is divided into two chambers, left and right, the right atrium and ventricle lie on the right side and the left atrium and ventricle on the left side.
The deoxygenated blood from the heart enters the lungs through the pulmonary valve as seen in the human heart diagram. This process is called pulmonary circulation. From the pulmonic valve, the blood travels to the pulmonary artery into the tiny capillary vessels of the lungs. The oxygen present in the tiny air sacs enters the blood through the walls of the capillaries into the blood. Carbon dioxide, the metabolic waste is passed into the air sacs. As one exhales during respiration, carbon dioxide is removed from the body. The purified blood is oxygenated and sent back to the left atrium through the pulmonary veins.
There are several different blood flow system diagrams, with or without labels. Blood flows continuously through your body’s blood vessels. Your heart is the pump that makes it all possible. Therefore print our blood flow through the heart diagrams to help you study more about the function of the heart!
