Blood flow thru the heart link help pls.

  1. At one time, I had a print out of a powerpoint presentation of the blood flow through the heart. I think it probably came from a link that Daytonite or someone else posted, and I was hoping someone could re-post that link.

    I'd appreciate it!

    TIA!

    Blood Flow Through Your Heart and Lungs

    Begins at the inferior and superior vena cava to the
    right atrium then through the
    tricuspid valve to the
    right ventricle then through the
    pulmonic valve to the
    pulmonary artery to the lungs then to the
    pulmonary veins into the
    left atriumthen through the
    mitral valve into the
    left vent from the
    left vent through the
    aortic valve to the
    aorta and then out to the rest of the body

    Hope this helps :spin:

    these are the two links that i have:

    shockwave - the hyper heart - an animated tutorial of the flow of blood through the heart (click on the play button to see this animation). there are links in a drop down menu toward the left bottom of the animation page that lead you to pages explaining each one of the phases

    http://www.anatimation.com/ecg.htm - heart animation from anatimation.com. this website explains that phases of the heart beat through a series of webpages that include an animation of the flow of blood through the heart as well as the electrical conduction pathway. click on the links at the left side of the page to go to the various pages of diagrams or animation. includes a short glossary of terms associated with the cardiac cycle.

    thanks Daytonite!

    I have a friend that is on her 3rd try on attempting to pass the HESI exit exam for our graduating class, and I'm trying to help her study. This is one of her weak points.

    I was one of 15 people that passed our exit HESI on the first try - out of 63 ppl sitting for the exam. It's a real shame, because of course it prevents us from getting our provisional licenses, and therefore can't work!

    Thanks again!
