044 How Blood Flows Through the Heart

How does the blood move around the body? What is the role of the heart in bringing blood to all the different parts of the body?

Watch and see as Leslie gives an overview of the Circulatory System, the first in this series. Enjoy!

Transcript of Today’s Episode

Hello and welcome to another episode of Interactive Biology TV where we’re making Biology fun! My name is Leslie Samuel and in this episode, Episode 44, I am going to be talking about how blood flows through the heart.

This is going to be the first video in the Circulatory System series. So, let’s get right into it.

Here, we are looking at two pictures of the heart. On your left, we’re looking at the heart when it’s being filled with blood. On the right, we’re looking at the heart when it’s pumping the blood out of the heart. We’re going to look at a number of details here just to give an overview of how the blood flows through the heart.

In order to understand how the blood flows through the heart, we need to look at the valves that are found in the different parts of the heart. First of all, allow me to point out that this is the right side of the heart so, this is right. Over here, we have the left side of the heart. Now, that looks a little strange because when you’re looking at the screen, this is your left and this is your right. But, this is looking at it as an individual that’s facing you. This would be his right side and this would be the left side.

There are a number of valves that are found throughout the heart. There are a number of parts of the heart that we need to know. The first thing I want to point out is here, we have the right atrium and the left atrium. So, this chamber is the left atrium. This chamber is the right atrium. Then, we have the right ventricle and the left ventricle. Same thing over here, we have the right ventricle, left ventricle; right atrium and left atrium.

The next thing I want to point out is that between the atria and the ventricles, we have what we call the atrioventricular valve. And that makes sense since it’s between the atria and the ventricle. So, here we have an atrioventricular valve, here we have an atrioventricular valve. Now, on the right side, we also call this atrioventricular valve a tricuspid valve. We call it “tricuspid” because it has three cusps, in other words, three flaps. You’re only seeing two here but, that’s because this is a cross-section. Then, on the left side, we have what we call the left atrioventricular valve which is also known as the mitral valve or the bicuspid valve.

I’m just giving you these different names so that if you go and read a textbook and it says one of these, you know exactly what it’s talking about. So, we have the tricuspid or the right atrioventricular valve and the bicuspid or the mitral or the left atrioventricular valve.

Then, we have valves that allow blood to leave the ventricles. On the right side, we have the right semilunar valve and that is also called the pulmonary valve. The reason it’s called a pulmonary valve is because it leads into the pulmonary artery. On the left, we have this semilunar valve which we can also call the aortic valve. We call it the aortic valve because it leads into the aorta. So, these are the different names and I want you to know these names: tricuspid, bicuspid, mitral, atrioventricular, aortic, semilunar, which is the pulmonary and the aortic. Those are the valves that I want you to be familiar with.

The special thing about valves is that it allows for blood to flow in one direction. So, here you can see blood can flow into the ventricle but, it can’t flow back. If it tries to flow back, these valves are going to shut. So, all of these valves are one-way valves. They allow for blood to flow in one direction.

Now that we know the different valves, let’s look at how blood flow happens.

Blood comes back from the body and it enters into the heart via the vena cava. So, you can see blood is flowing into the vena cava. We have the posterior vena cava and we have the anterior vena cava. Blood is coming in, entering into the right atrium. As it enters into the right atrium, the atrium contracts and that pushes the blood into the right ventricle. Once the blood gets into the right ventricle, the ventricle contracts and that pushes the blood through the semilunar valve or the pulmonary valve into the pulmonary artery. And from here, that blood goes to the lungs. And, it goes also in this direction to the lungs. Once the blood goes to the lungs, it picks up, you guessed it, oxygen because you’re breathing in the oxygen. That oxygen aids the blood. Once the blood gets oxygen aided, it leaves the lungs and goes via the pulmonary veins into the left atrium.

The left atrium contracts sending the blood through the left atrioventricular valve into the left ventricle. Once the blood is in the left ventricle, the left ventricle contracts and that sends the blood through the semilunar valve or the aortic valve in this case, into the aorta, and then, that blood can go to the rest of the body. I know this looks a little confusing with all of these arrows but, let’s follow that one more time. Blood comes from the body. It enters via the posterior and anterior vena cava into the right atrium. The right atrium contracts and that pushes the blood through the tricuspid valve or the right atrioventricular valve into the ventricle. The ventricle contracts and that pushes the blood via the semilunar valve or the pulmonary valve to the pulmonary arteries that go to the lungs, picks up oxygen, then it comes back oxygenated via the pulmonary veins into the left atrium. The left atrium contracts and that pushes the blood into the left ventricle. The ventricle contracts, pushing the blood via the aortic valve or the semilunar valve to the aorta and out to the rest of the body. So, the function of the heart is basically to pump the blood to the body, to send the blood to the lungs to pick up oxygen, and then to send that oxygenated blood to the muscles and to the organs that need it.

Once the muscles and the organs that need it, once they use that oxygen, the blood comes back via the vena cava to the heart. The process can continue over and over again. I have these two over here and you can see, this shows the heart filling with blood and, this shows when the ventricles actually contract and send the blood out to the lungs and to the rest of the body via the aorta.

There’s one thing I’d like to emphasize though. I say that, first the right atrium contracts and then the right ventricle contracts, and I’m saying that just because I’m showing it one at a time. But, both atria contracts simultaneously and both ventricles contract simultaneously. So, that while this process is happening, this process is also happening. Blood is being pumped to the lungs. At the same time, it’s being pumped to the rest of the body. That gives you a general introduction into the circulatory system by showing you how the heart pumps blood.

As usual, you can visit the website at Interactive-Biology.com for more Biology videos and other resources. That’s all for this video, my name is Leslie Samuel and I’ll see you on the next one.

  • Thanks Leslie for your videos. There are very good teaching material. I am a doctor from Sri Lanka. I am responding to the question on terminology raised by Livinglifehigh as to whether it is correct to call them posterior and anterior vena cava or Inferior and superior vena cava.

    In man, they are called Inferior and superior vena cava as man is biped and when standing upright it is inferior and superior in its orientation to the heart.

    However, I can imagine you being a biologist and all animals are mainly quadruped the β€˜superior vena cava’ becomes β€˜anterior vena cava’ and β€˜Inferior vena cava’ becomes β€˜posterior vena cava’. This is my guess why you call it so. So I think both terminologies are acceptable.

  • I am so glad I found this video. We are studying Cardiovascular system in A & P now and I just could not grasp the flow, but now I totally understand.

  • @shanaspeck Leslie explains them as simply as he can for everyone to understand. You can visit our website for more cardiovascular system videos. I’m sure you’ll find value in each of them. Thank you for watching and stay tuned for more! πŸ™‚

  • This video saved me! I have. Test on this tomorrow and I didn’t understand the way the book made it out. After watching this I get it a lot better!! Thank you soooo much!

  • @issayk1 Hi! Thank you for watching. Yes, we had the discussion on the error below in the earlier comments posted. You can go ahead and check them out.

    Please stay tuned for more Biology videos πŸ™‚

  • Hello, one quick observation… 4::54…. Posterior and Anterior vena cava.
    I think it’s Superior (Anterior) and Inferior (Posterior). I’m from Romania… and we studied them like that…. and I’ve seen pretty much videos (USA made) which say the same thing πŸ™‚ (superior – inferior)

    Anterior = in front of. Posterior = behind.
    They have the same position, only one collects no oxigen blood from superior members + head, and the other one from the down below body.

    Keep up the good work

  • @norcoboy Leslie’s inspiration are actually his viewers. You are his reason why he wants to keep on doing what he’s doing at his Biology website. Stay tuned. He has more videos coming very soon!

  • @Dipsy260495 Hi, unfortunately, Leslie is no longer taking requests for specific videos. He’s loaded with a lot of work that it would already be impossible for him to do all requests. But, nevertheless, we hope you’ll still find the site helpful. Good luck with your studies!

  • hello leslie could you make explaination on smooth muscle’s contraction mechanism please?
    i dont understand about the calmadulin-calcium complex,myosin light chain kinase,myosin light chain phosphatase and the latch bridge.thanks a lot anyway.

  • id like to know how when the papillary muscles contract which also makes the chordae tendinae pull back and taking notice that the tricuspid valve is connected to the chordae tendinae do the valves open or do they close when the papillary muscles contract along with the chordae tendinae and during when the atria contracts.

  • oh and you might have to correct the decription of the vena cava its superior and inferior not anterior and posterior. But it was a great video for clearing my understanding of blood circulation but im confused what relationship do the papillary muscles have when the atria is contracting or not and how it affects the valves.

  • Thank you so much!! I was having a hard time getting this from a textbook and audio from an online class. I love your videos and wish I had a teacher like you when I was in school before!

  • Wow should of saw this before I got a D πŸ™ …now gonna retake it for sure imma get an A …thank you I get everything so much better because of you πŸ˜€ yay!!

  • @Dipsy260495 xylem transports water. Phloem transports sugars and other ions. Each structure has specific adaptive features that allows it to carry out its function. Water is transported using hydro-static pressure gradient across plant. Sucrose enters the plant using active transport. Google for more info…

  • That was so EASY to understand… Thank you so much! Now I think I can describe the path of blood through the heart with my eyes closed!

  • Want to learn an very EASY way to understand blood flow??? This is a great video! However, I suggest searching in YouTube for “Blood Flow Made Easy” and I guarantee you will get every exam question right! Then come back to this video and you will understand it better.

  • thank u soo much very informative. i will be doing a university presentation coming the human heart to a racehorse’s heart

  • thank u soo much very informative. i will be doing a university presentation coming the human heart to a racehorse’s heart

  • Finally, I understand how blood flows through the heart. You are a superb professor of biology and a brilliant instructor!

  • I can’t thank you enough for making this video as elementary as possible. I just watched another video on the same topic and it left my head spinning. I’m sure to ace my exam now. Thanks a million!!!

  • “pulmonary vein to the lungs,” dude get your anatomy straight.. pulmonary artery takes blood to lungs and vein takes it away from lungs

  • I just wanna say you’re amazing. You start basically from scratch. My textbook used so much jargon that it did’nt click in my head & other videos demonstrated asif we knew some knowledge. Thank you thank you thank you !

  • i just want to say thank you so much i missed this topic in lab class and i really needed to understand the heart my friends explaining it was so confusing but i finally get it im so happy !!

  • I have been struggling all week trying to understand the heart flow. Your video made it simple for me to understand. I also enjoyed your relaxed pace, soothing voice (lol), and teaching methods.

  • i was trying to get my head around the cardiac system , i tried it many times never worked. this video just made it so easy to understand and to learn. thank you very much

  • Thank – you so much! This REALLY helped me, let’s hope my Biology exams next week ask me a big question about the heart πŸ˜€

  • Great Video. Just thought I would let you know that in your brief written description you said “It shows blood entering via the vena cave to the Right atrium, then getting pumped into the right ventricle, to the pulmonary vein to the lungs” Shouldn’t it be the pulmonary Artery?

  • Great Video! At least now I understood the whole process and the function of each part of the heart! I am totally gonna survive 6th Grade! Except for the Algebra…I really, really appreciate you for making this video for us student to understand the lecture well. Keep posting more videos! We will surely gonna subscribe you! πŸ˜€

  • i think that the vena cava are Duperior an Inferior not anterior Posterior

  • Your vid is really nice, but I’d like to point out one thing. The vena cavae are not posterior and anterior. They should’ve been named as superior and inferior. πŸ™‚

  • How do you improve the pump flow from the heart. I research it and found that 55 percent is the highest you can have. How can you improve the pump flow if somebody has a pump flow of 35%. What foods or medications can someone take, and if the person is little overweight would losing the weight would help. These are my questions.

  • Thank goodness my prof told us to look this up! Great pace and explanations! Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

  • thank you so much! I have been a nurse for several years and none have made more sense than yours! You are a SuperStar!

  • Good video!
    Slight correction: the labels says anterior and posterior vena cava but they are superior and inferior.

  • “the special thing about valves, is that it allows blood to flow in ONE DIRECTION.”
    I think i ll do pretty good for my bio test tomorrow….

  • Nicely done! I’d love for you to check out my rap about the circulatory system, “Pump it Up!” It’s at the sciencemusicvideos channel. Let me know what you think.

  • What a GREAT video! This is very simple and gets to the point without overwhelming you. Thanks!!

  • I love the way you broke everything down slowly. Much better than trying to decipher from my text book. I will look for more of your videos and your website for more help. This was GREAT! Thank you….a grateful A&P student.

  • Thank you SO much! I was was so confused with how the heart works and it was extremely overwhelming with the notes from class. Now I finally get it! clear explanation and extremely helpful! recommended this to all my fellow bio students πŸ™‚

  • Your videos are so helpful! I never understand what my Anatomy and Physiology professor is talking about in class but when I am studying I watch your videos and everything makes sense. Thank you so much!!!

  • ya, they can be called either, or. The anterior (front) vena cava is also superior (upper, closer to the head), and the posterior vena cava (back) is also inferior (lower, closer to the feet). So, there’s one that flows into the upper/front part of the right atrium, and that flows into the lower/back part of the right atrium.

  • This presentation was easier to understand than any of my high school biology classes. THANK YOU!

  • thank you so much, i feel more confident for my ECG exam this thursday. I even recorded it on my phone to hear it on my way to school. Thank you again, your amazing…..

  • inferior and superior (meaning lower and upper), not anterior and posterior (meaning front and back) vena cava

  • This was very informative to me! I wish I was able to take the written notes and the picture. That is the best explanation I have seen out there! Great Job! thank you for sharing!

  • Awesome explanation. But isn’t inferior and superior vena cava based on the place they are located ?. I appreciate if you explain that to me. Great job !!

  • My exam is tomorrow and I couldn’t understand a word till I saw this video πŸ™‚ I’m speechless thanks.. This really helped !!

  • I’m not a child moron. They are named superior vena cava, and inferior vena cava. They are named this way due to their positions.

  • Thank you so much!! You explain everything to well and make it a lot easier to understand! Many Thanks πŸ™‚

  • Perhaps the most interesting research coming out on prevention of heart disease is the study published two weeks ago by the journal CIRCULATION of the American Heart Association. This 10 year NIH funded study found a 48% reduction of heart disease in people who were taught Transcendental Meditation. The control group used the standard education program. This finding was even more significant when looking at those who were most regular with their twice a day practice–66% in that group.

  • Sir/Madam, your video is very informative and useful. May I copy it so that I can use it during my class…Thank you very much

  • It would be a shame for you not to burn fat when these other normal people are able to shed pounds so easily using Fat Blast Factor (Look it up on google).

  • Anterior/ posterior are commonly interchanged with superior/inferior. This is likely due to preference of proper zoological terminology.

  • Thank you for this! I really had trouble remembering the names of everything but watching this step by step really helped

  • Love u man new semester same anatomy. Thanks professor please don’t ever take these videos down. Your photos are so efficient and clean. Source?

  • LOL, my wife might have a little bit of a problem with that one there, but I’m glad you’re enjoying the videos πŸ˜‰

  • thank you so much. i can not begin to explain how many anatomy exams you have helped me through. i will continue to watch your videos for a long time

  • THANK GOD FOR JESUS! you are amazing! explained that to me like no one could!!

  • My entire cardio unit in pharmacology just clicked…thank you so much! You broke it down perfectly! Leave it to youtube to clear up in 10 minutes what a 4 hour nursing lecture couldn’t.

  • I’m so glad I have found you. I’m from Brazil, and I can understand perfectly what you say, your english it’s so clear and helps me a lot, as I’m studying A levels in England to be able to go to university! THANK YOU, and I will defo follow you!

  • Thank you so much! You make much more sense and break it down much better than my professor. :))

  • Thank you so much, keep it up, atleast now i know which youtube video to go to πŸ˜€

  • you’re right! they’re the same thing though. The superior vena cava is also called the anterior vena cava, and the interior vena cava is also the posterior. Hope this helps. ^^~

  • yeah, I just checked it after I wrote the comment =D But, thank you cindy πŸ™‚

  • This was soooo helpful, i can’t thank you enough! πŸ™‚ you’re the best keep the videos coming please πŸ˜€

  • How often does the heart pump blood to the body in one day? Great video by the way πŸ™‚

  • adult heart rate = 60-100 beats per minute
    with each heart beat it roughly puts out 70cc of blood
    the heart pumps 4 -8 liters of blood a minute
    In one day the heart pumps 5760-11520 liters of blood per day

  • Thank you thank you thank you! Finally someone who can really explain this simply and for informatively. God Bless! =)

  • Thank Thank Thank …! I finally understand this process. You are a great teacher!

  • That helped a whole lot, and i’m in a low grade and i understand that! Made my science class a bunch easier. I even recommended it to my teacher!

  • Very clear and simple to follow. Thank you. The Posterior cena cava is also known as the Inferior vena cava and the Anterior is also known as the Superior vena cava. I have just learned that too!

  • Thank You soo much. You’re a life saver and you are one phenomenal educator.

  • Thank you for this video! I’m pretty squeamish, and this video explained everything in a way that was easy to understand, but also didn’t make me feel squeamish about the fact that blood was being talked about. Also, your voice is really nice for teaching!

  • Thank you for teaching the blood flow through the heart. You explained very well. Thanks again!!

  • He forgot to mention that in order for the blood to flow to the right ventricle from the right atrium the tricuspid valve has to open– tricuspid valve then closes after blood has flown to the right ventricle

  • visit my channel to see the video Time to pay up, Timmy!
    Please comment, like and subscribe.

    you wont regret it!

  • this was great. I learned more in the 9 minutes than i did reading my textbook for an hour

  • This video is amazing! Any chance you could do a few on congenital heart defects? Thank you for this!

  • Thank you thank you thank you!! My instructor wasn’t making it clear that there were different names for the same valves which was where I kept getting so confused. You Leslie are a lifesaver. I have now subscribed to your channel. Thanks again!

  • Dude your awesome…I would buy your book, but I don’t really need it. Thanks bro

  • Great video, but I just want to point out that it’s the superior vena cava and inferior vena cava because anatomically, they are positioned top and bottom, not front and back.

  • U are amazing… Thank you. I passed my presentation n this video made it easy for me. Thank u

  • U are amazing… Thank you. I passed my presentation n this video made it easy for me. Thank u

  • wonderful this is one of the example for innovative way of education

  • You are amazing. Im taking my nremt soon and I finally understand. Thank You!

  • Thank you thank you thank you soooo much! you explained the circulatory system a million times better than my biology teacher, Hank Green from CrashCourse and Bill Nye the Science Guy! I cannot express how much gratitude i have for you.

  • What a great teacher. Teachers are great when they make it easy for the student to learn even complicated material. Thanks!

  • What a great teacher. Teachers are great when they make it easy for the student to learn even complicated material. Thanks!

  • OMG! I LOVE THIS VIDEO. THIS IS GOING TO HELP ME PASS MY NATIONAL TEST. GOD BLESS YOU

  • You are the best just learned this video in a little of no time much love

  • You are the best just learned this video in a little of no time much love

  • Wow that was awesome you explained this so clear. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • I’ve seen this video a couple of times already and really it helped me a lot…
    thank you so much sir please continue inspiring us to study and helping us as well in our hardships when it comes to problems like this…

  • for some reason remembering the order of functions/names in the heart has been a problem for me. like everyone else has said already you explained it very clearly and made it easy for me to remember. thank you!

  • Masha Allah. Alhamdu Lillah that i found this video. Thank you so much and may the Almighty Bless You. Ameen.

  • it was wonderful.could understand the complete physiology of the heart

  • Both are correct. The superior vena is positioned anteriorly and inferior vena cava is positioned posteriorly in the chamber of right atrium.

  • R and L pulmonary veins carrying the oxygenated blood..do the R pulmonary veins also empty into the left atrium? Thank you for your videos.

  • Waaaah i just found this website…. Thank god! You are amazing! Thank you , all of these will help me for my cardiophysiologyexam!

  • Thank you for taking the time to teach this material, it is so much easier to understand than reading a book.

  • great video. thanks a ton. May god bless you !!! thanks a lot. Thanks for taking the time to spread your knowledge. thanks !! πŸ™‚

  • hi samuel, thank you so much for your kind explanation…. you gave me a relax mind by going through details of each circulation…. wish you are my teacher at my class…

  • Let’s try to keep up on this stuff as we get older we should know this,
    especially for my family because we have a tendency to die from Heart
    problems.

  • oh My God I enjoy the lecture; when I saw the cardiac cycle, I was scared, but now, I can teach it to other people myself. Thank you, you are a God saver

  • Thanks a lot! It’s the little things that you say that makes such a huge difference. For example, “The antrioventricular is in the middle–and that makes sense because it is between the atrium and the ventricles.” It’s hard to see the obvious when you are so overwhelmed with everything else, so things like that really helps!

  • Thank you so much, u have cleared my idea about blood circulation. I didnt understand when my tutor explain me. You are great

  • Yo yo… Fine movie.

    My older brother used to be an obese bloke. He changed himself from 284lbs of pure fat to 200 lbs of absolute lean muscle. I couldn’t believe it! I just joined myself coz I wanna strengthen. He made use of the Muscle Building Bible (Search on Google)…

    explanation!

  • good vid but it bugs me that you call the inferior and superior vena cava
    the posterior and anterior vena cava…

  • and John Tan there are pulmonary veins on the right and left sides, just
    like the artery extends to both sides, for both the left and right lungs..
