    Which chamber pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs?

    Correct Answer
    right ventricle
    Explanation
    The right ventricle pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs. It receives blood from the right atrium and contracts to push the blood through the pulmonary artery and into the lungs. In the lungs, the blood picks up oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide, becoming oxygenated. This oxygenated blood then returns to the heart through the pulmonary veins and enters the left atrium to be pumped out to the rest of the body. The right ventricle plays a crucial role in the pulmonary circulation, ensuring that the blood is properly oxygenated before it is distributed to the tissues.

    Which chamber receives deoxygenated blood from the body?

    Correct Answer
    right atrium
    Explanation
    The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the body. Deoxygenated blood is returned to the heart through the superior and inferior vena cava, and it enters the right atrium. From there, the blood is pumped into the right ventricle and then to the lungs for oxygenation. The right atrium acts as a receiving chamber for deoxygenated blood before it is sent to the lungs for oxygenation.

    Which chamber pumps oxygenated blood to the body?

    Correct Answer
    left ventricle
    Explanation
    The left ventricle is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood to the body. It receives oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium and contracts forcefully to push the blood out through the aorta, which then distributes it to the rest of the body. This chamber has thicker and more muscular walls compared to the other chambers of the heart, allowing it to generate enough pressure to propel the blood throughout the systemic circulation.
