  1. superior and inferior vena cava
  2. right atrium
  3. tricuspid valve
  4. right ventricle
  5. pulmonary valve
  6. pulmonary artery
  7. LUNGS
  8. pulmonary vein
  9. left atrium
  10. mitral valve
  11. left ventricle
  12. aotic valve
  13. aorta

  • superior and inferior vena cava – 2 large veins that carry deoxygenated blood to the heart
  • right atrium – one of the hearts 4 chambers that receives deoxygenated blood form the inferior and superior vena cava
  • tricuspid valve – is the valve between the right atrium and right ventricle
  • right ventricle – one of the hearts 4 chambers that pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs
  • pulmonary valve – is the valve between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery
  • pulmonary artery – the artery that carries from the right ventricle to the lungs – it is the only artery that carries deoxygenated blood – the main artery splits into the left pulmonary artery and the right pulmonary artery
  • LUNGS – where the blood gets oxygenated
  • pulmonary vein – large blood vessel that receives oxygenated blood from the lungs and drains into the left atrium – there are 4 pulmonary veins – 2 from each lung – they are also among the few veins that carry oxygenated blood
  • left atrium – one of the hearts 4 chambers that acts as a holding chamber for returning blood from the lungs and acts a pump to transport blood to other parts of the heart
  • mitral valve – the valve between the left atrium and left ventricle
  • left ventricle – one of the hearts 4 chambers that pumps blood out under high pressure through the aorta to the body
  • aortic valve – the valve between the left ventricle and the aorta
  • aorta – distrubutes blood from the left ventricle of the heart to the rest of the body
Normal heartbeat is between 60 and 100 beats per minute. There are several factors that can cause your heart to beat over 100 times per minute.  They include exercise, emotions, anemia, fever, overactive thyroid and some medications.
