  • 5. 

    Label 4 + 10. 

  • 6. 

    Label 9 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Pulmonary Artery. The label "Pulmonary Artery" refers to the blood vessel that carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs. It is responsible for transporting blood to the lungs where it can be oxygenated before returning to the heart.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Label 1. 

    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Aorta". The aorta is the largest artery in the body that carries oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. It originates from the left ventricle of the heart and branches out into smaller arteries to supply blood to various organs and tissues. The aorta plays a crucial role in maintaining proper blood circulation and delivering oxygen and nutrients to the body's cells.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Label 2. 

    Explanation
    The superior vena cava is a large vein that carries deoxygenated blood from the upper body to the right atrium of the heart. It is located in the upper chest and is responsible for returning blood from the head, neck, and upper limbs back to the heart. The superior vena cava plays a crucial role in the circulation of blood and is an important component of the cardiovascular system.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Label 12. 

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Bicuspid Valve, Mitral Valve. The terms "Bicuspid Valve" and "Mitral Valve" refer to the same valve in the heart. The bicuspid valve is located between the left atrium and the left ventricle and is also known as the mitral valve. It consists of two flaps that open and close to regulate blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle. Therefore, both terms are correct and interchangeable when referring to this specific valve in the heart.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Label 6. 

    Explanation
    The tricuspid valve is a heart valve located between the right atrium and the right ventricle. It consists of three leaflets or cusps that open and close to regulate blood flow between the two chambers. When the right atrium contracts, the tricuspid valve opens, allowing blood to flow into the right ventricle. When the right ventricle contracts, the tricuspid valve closes to prevent backflow of blood into the atrium. Thus, the tricuspid valve plays a crucial role in ensuring proper blood circulation within the heart.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Label the structure connecting the right venticle and the pulmonary artery. 

    Explanation
    The structure connecting the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery is known as the pulmonary valve. This valve ensures that the blood flows in the correct direction, from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery, and prevents any backflow of blood. It opens when the right ventricle contracts, allowing the blood to be pumped into the pulmonary artery, and closes when the ventricle relaxes, preventing any blood from flowing back into the heart. The pulmonary valve plays a crucial role in the circulation of oxygenated blood to the lungs for oxygenation.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What type of blood flows from the body into the right atrium?

    Explanation
    The blood that flows from the body into the right atrium is oxygen poor. Oxygen is delivered to the body's tissues through the arteries, and after the oxygen is used by the tissues, the blood returns to the heart through the veins. This deoxygenated blood then enters the right atrium, where it will be pumped to the lungs to pick up oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Name a type of vessel that transports blood in the human body.

    Explanation
    Capillaries, veins, and arteries are all types of vessels that transport blood in the human body. Capillaries are the smallest blood vessels, responsible for the exchange of oxygen, nutrients, and waste products between the blood and surrounding tissues. Veins carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart from the body's tissues, while arteries carry oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body's tissues. These three types of vessels work together to ensure the proper circulation of blood throughout the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Oxygen-poor blood enters the right atrium of the heart via 

    • A.

      The aorta

    • B.

      The right ventricle and then through the pulmonary artery to the lungs

    • C.

      Veins called the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava

    • D.

      The pulmonary vein

    Correct Answer
    C. Veins called the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava
    Explanation
    Oxygen-poor blood enters the right atrium of the heart via veins called the inferior vena cava and the superior vena cava. The inferior vena cava carries deoxygenated blood from the lower body, while the superior vena cava carries deoxygenated blood from the upper body. These veins bring the deoxygenated blood back to the heart, specifically the right atrium, where it will then be pumped to the right ventricle and then through the pulmonary artery to the lungs for oxygenation.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The internal structure of the heart consists of how many chambers?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      1

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4 because the internal structure of the heart consists of four chambers: two atria and two ventricles. The atria receive blood from the body and lungs, while the ventricles pump the blood out to the rest of the body. This four-chambered structure allows for efficient separation of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood, ensuring proper circulation throughout the body.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    The right ventricle

    • A.

      Takes in deoxygenated blood

    • B.

      Takes in oxygenated blood

    • C.

      Pumps out oxygenated blood

    • D.

      Pumps out deoxygenated blood

    Correct Answer
    D. Pumps out deoxygenated blood
    Explanation
    The right ventricle pumps out deoxygenated blood because it receives blood from the right atrium, which is responsible for collecting deoxygenated blood from the body. The right ventricle then contracts and pushes the deoxygenated blood into the pulmonary artery, which carries it to the lungs for oxygenation. Once the blood is oxygenated in the lungs, it returns to the left side of the heart to be pumped to the rest of the body. Therefore, the right ventricle plays a crucial role in the circulation of deoxygenated blood.

    Rate this question:

    The vessel carrying oxygenated to the heart from the lungs is called

    • A.

      The Aorta

    • B.

      The pulmonary vein

    • C.

      The pulmonary artery

    • D.

      The vena cavae

    Correct Answer
    B. The pulmonary vein
    Explanation
    The vessel that carries oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart is called the pulmonary vein.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Which heart chamber has the thickest muscle?

    • A.

      Left atrium

    • B.

      Left Ventricle

    • C.

      Right Atrium

    • D.

      Right Ventricle

    Correct Answer
    B. Left Ventricle
    Explanation
    The left ventricle has the thickest muscle among the heart chambers. This is because it is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood to the rest of the body, which requires more forceful contractions. The left ventricle receives oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium and then pumps it out through the aorta to the systemic circulation. Its thick muscle allows it to generate the necessary pressure to propel blood throughout the body, making it the most muscular chamber of the heart.

    Heart sounds are produced when

    • A.

      Heart valves open

    • B.

      Heart valves close

    • C.

      Blood fills the atria

    • D.

      Blood fills the ventricles

    Correct Answer
    B. Heart valves close
    Explanation
    Heart sounds are produced when heart valves close. When the heart valves close, they create a turbulent flow of blood, which produces vibrations that can be heard as heart sounds. These sounds are known as the "lub-dub" sound of the heartbeat. The first sound, "lub," is produced when the atrioventricular valves close, and the second sound, "dub," is produced when the semilunar valves close. These sounds are important in diagnosing heart conditions and assessing the overall health of the heart.
