Answer:

The basic function of the heart is to pump poorly oxygenated blood from the right side of the heart (from the left atrium to left ventricle via the "tricuspid" valve) and into the lungs, where it becomes oxygenated. From there, the oxygenated blood enters the left side of the heart (again from the atrium to ventricle, via another valve known as the "bicuspid" valve), where it is then pumped into the body.
