(i) The blood pumped by the right ventricle (dioxygenated blood) is trans ported through pulmonary artery to lungs where CO 2 is exchanged with O through diffusion and returns back to the heart .

      In amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals, blood flow is directed in two circuits: one through the lungs and back to the heart (pulmonary circulation) and the other throughout the rest of the body and its organs, including the brain (systemic circulation).   Sedentary Lifestyle: Proper blood flow requires movement to keep the heart healthy and pumping smoothly. So seniors who aren't able to move around as much are at risk for circulation problems. Obesity: Being overweight forces the heart to work harder to pump blood and also puts more weight on the feet, which may lead to circulation issues.

Blood Flow through the Human Body Blood with little oxygen is pumped from the Right Atrium through a valve to the Right Ventricle and through another valve into the Pulmonary Vein.

The coronary arteries provide the main blood supply to the heart. The coronary arteries also supply the myocardium with oxygen to allow for the contraction of the heart and thus causing circulation of the blood throughout the body.

Two main coronary arteries originate from the base of the aorta as it exits the left ventricle: the left and right coronary arteries. The Amazing Heart and Blood Vessels The adult human heart is about the size of two clenched fists. In an average lifetime, the heart pumps 1 million barrels of blood—enough blood to fill supertankers.
