Observe the following labeled heart diagrams to help you comprehend the different parts of the human heart. The diagrams are provided in colors to show different parts of important heart component such as the aorta, pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle, right ventricle, inferior vena cava, and superior vena cava among others. Feel free to download and use them as necessary.
This set includes an excellent labeled heart diagram which uses different colors. The heart pumps blood throughout the body with fascinating functions that sustain human life. It consists of four chambers: right atrium, left atrium, right ventricle and left ventricle. The two upper chambers are called the left and the right atria, and the two lower chambers are known as the left and the right ventricles. The two atria and ventricles are separated from each other by a muscle wall called ‘septum’. The septum separates the ventricles from each other.
The heart features four types of valves which regulate the flow of blood through the heart. These valves have been clearly shown in the labeled diagram of the heart. The blood pumped by the heart not only provides nutrients to the body cells but also removes the waste materials from different parts of the body. The blue colored blood is the blood without oxygen. It returns from the upper portion of the body by way of the superior vena cava and from the lower portion of the body by way of the inferior vena cava. Meanwhile, the red colored blood is blood with oxygen. It returns back from the lungs by way of the pulmonary veins.
The above-labeled diagram can be modified as per your own needs. Heart diagram can be printed out with colors to make it easier to understand. Make sure to visit more of our posts with educative diagram contents!
