How does your Heart Function?
Initially, blood will travel to the right atrium through to the right ventricle, which is then responsible for pumping blood to the lungs where blood cells will pick up fresh oxygen. The blood will return into the left atrium and move down the left ventricle. From here oxygenated blood is pumped out to the rest of the body through arteries.
