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




Aortic semilunar valve


Mesenteric artery


Mesenteric capillaries (capillaries of the small intestine)


Hepatic capillaries (capillaries of the liver)


Hepatic vein


Hepatic portal vein


Inferior vena cava
