What are the receiving chambers of the heart and what are the discharging chambers?

1 Answer

The receiving chambers are the right and left atria and the discharging chambers are the right and left ventricles separated by a septum.



The heart has four chambers: two atria and two ventricles . The right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the right ventricle. The right ventricle pumps the oxygen-poor blood to the lungs where they are oxygenated. The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the left ventricle.

So, the pattern goes like:

RA ----> RV ---> Lungs ----> LA ----> LV
