  1. What are the three branches of the aortic arch?
    Brachiocephalic artery, Left Common Coratid Artery, and Left Subclavian Vein
  2. The right ventricle pumps blood into which vessel?
    The pulmonary trunk
  3. A drop of blood returning to the heart from the head region would enter the heart through which vessel?
    The superior Vena Cava
  4. Blood within the pulmonary veins returns to the?
    Right atrium
  5. Blood is carried to capillaries in the myocardium by way of the?
    coronory arteries
  6. What blood vessels is responsible for draining the majority of blood from the brain:
    internal jugular veins
  7. mediastinum
    the anatomical region that extends from the sternum to the vertebral column, the first rib to the diaphragm, and between the lungs
  8. apex
    the tip of the heart, directed anteriorly, inferiorly, and to the left; rests on the diaphragm
  9. right atrium
    the heart chamber that receives oxygen-poor blood from three veins: the superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, and coronary sinus
  10. tricuspid valve
    this allows oxygen-poor blood to pass from the right atrium into the right ventricle; also called the right atrioventricular valve
  11. left atrium
    the heart chamber that receives oxygen-rich blood from the four pulmonary veins
  12. right ventricle
    the heart chamber forming most of the anterior surface of the heart that contracts to pump oxygen-poor blood to the
  13. bicuspid valve
    this allows oxygen-rich blood to pass from the left atrium into the left ventricle; also called the left atrioventricular valve or mitral valve
  14. systemic circulation
    the routes through which oxygen-rich blood flows from the left ventricle through the aorta to all organs of the body and oxygen-poor blood returns to the right atrium
  15. pulmonary circulation
    the flow of oxygen-poor blood from the right ventricle to the lungs and the return of oxygen-rich blood from the lungs to the left atrium
  16. coronary circulation
    the pathway followed by the blood from the ascending aorta through the blood vessels supplying the heart and returning to the right atrium
