Blood Flow Diagram Study Guide

Use this practice exercise to memorize how blood flows through the circulatory system.

Blood Flows through the heart and blood vessels in the following order.

Starting at the right atrium —> Tricuspid valve  —>  Right Ventricle  —>  Pulmonary Semi-Lunar Valve  —>  Pulmonary Trunk  —>  Right and Left Pulmonary Arteries —> Lungs  —>  Right and Left Pulmonary Veins  —>  Left Atrium  —> Mitral Valve  —>  Left Ventricle  —>  Aortic Semi-Lunar Valve  —>  Aorta  —>  Arteries —>  Arterioles  —>  Capillaries  —>  Venuals  —>  Veins  —>  Superior and Inferior Vena Cava  —> We start over again in the Right Atrium

Blood Color: RED AFTER LUNGS and BLUE AFTER CAPILLARIES.
