deoxygenated blood-4 parts
oxygenated blood-4 parts


Deoxygenated blood enters the heart via superior and inferior vena cava's then into the right atrium--> right ventricle then the pulmonary artery
Oxygenated blood returns via the pulmonary veins-->left atrium-->left ventricle then up into the aorta.
