Describe how a drop of blood travels through the heart, including when the blood is oxygenated vs. deoxygenated.
Deoxygenated blood comes into the heart via the Superior Vena Cava. It then travels to the Right atrium. The blood then travels through the tricuspid valve to the right ventricle. From the right ventricle, blood is pumped through the pulmonary value to the lungs via the pulmonary artery where the blood is then oxygenated. Oxygenated blood travels back to the heart via the pulmonary vein to the left atrium. The blood leaves the left atrium through the mitral valve and enters the left ventricle. The blood is pumped from the left ventricle through the aortic valve, which propels the blood through the aorta. The aorta then pumps the blood to the rest of the body, providing the body with oxygenated blood.
