Unformatted text preview: Mammal Circulatory System o Right ventricle pumps 02 poor blood to lungs via o Pulmonary artery as blood flows through o Capillaries in the lungs it takes up 02 and unloads co2. O2 rich blood flows through o Pulmonary veins to the o Left atrium, next 02 rich flows from left atrium to o Left ventricle through the o Aorta. The aorta has coronary arteries that supply blood to heart muscles and branches leading to o Head, chest, and arms. The aorta descends to abdomen to supply 02 blood to legs. The capillaries rejoin as venules leading to the venis o O2 poor blood from the upper body is chenneld into superior and infereior venal cava the 2 venae cava empty into the o Right atrium. In then flows into the right ventricle...
