  101. blood returning to the heart from the lungs enters the chamber called the
    left atrium
  102. Blood Flow through the heart
    • R atrium receives blood low in oxygen from all tissues through the sup.vena cave and inf. vena cava.
    • 2. the blood then enters the r ventricle and is pumped to the lungs through the pulmonary artery.
    • 3. blood returns from lungs with oxygen and enters the L atrium through the pulmonary veins
    • 4. blood enters the L ventricle adn is forcefully pumped into the aorta to be distributed to all tissues.
  103. At it`s termination in the abdomen, the aorta devides into the right and left
    common iliac arteries
  104. The large vein that drains the head is the
  105. veins- high in oxygen
    arteries - low in oxygen
  106. The right lymphatic duct and the thoracic duct drain into the
    subclavian veins
