Human Heart Lesson - Parts of the Human Heart - My Schoolhouse - Online Learning
The heart is a hollow muscle about the size
of your fist. The heart has four chambers. There are two
chambers on the left side and two chambers on the right side. Each
chamber has a specific job to do. Review the heart below.
Carbon dioxide rich blood is shown in blue
and oxygen rich blood is shown in red. The upper right chamber or
Right Atrium receives blood from the veins through the Vena Cava.
Blood from the veins contains little oxygen and is carbon dioxide rich.
The blood next travels to the lower right chamber or Right Ventricle which
pumps the blood to the lungs.
The lungs remove the carbon dioxide and
replenish the blood with oxygen. The blood returns to the heart in
the upper left chamber or Left Atrium. The blood then travels to the
lower left chamber or Left Ventricle which pumps the blood through the
Aorta to all the parts of the body.
