Hepatic portal system and the pulmonary circuit, Biology

Trace the flow of blood through the systemic circuit (hepatic portal system) and the pulmonary circuit, beginning and ending in the left ventricle.  You will be using named chambers, vessels, and valves.  Hint:  since you are starting and ending in the left ventricle, your first and last answer will be valves.

 

Right atrium

 

Tricuspid valve

 

Right ventricle

 

Pulmonary semilunar valve

 

Pulmonary trunk

 

2 pulmonary arteries

 

Pulmonary arterioles

 

Pulmonary capillaries (capillaries of the lungs)

 

Pulmonary venules

 

4 pulmonary veins

 

Left atrium

 

Bicuspid (mitral) valve
