Right atrium: the right upper chamber of the heart that receives blood from the venae cavae and coronary sinus
Source: WordNet 2.1
Right atrium: The right atrium of the heart is one of four chambers in the heart and a part of the cardiovascular system. The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the body via the superior vena cave and the inferior vena cava. Blood flows through the right atrium into the right ventricle, where it is pumped to the lungs.
In a healthy person, the right atrium works with the other three chambers of the heart to transport blood in a regular, strong rhythm that is activated by an electrical conduction system. The right atrium of the heart is supplied with blood by the coronary arteries.
Conditions that afflict the right atrium of the heart include myocardial infarction, infection, heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, angina, trauma, birth defects, cardiac arrest, and atherosclerosis.
