On the left side of the heart, because that's where circumflex coronary artery regulates blood flow. 5.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
