Summary Information: Right ventricle

Right ventricle: The right ventricle of the heart is a muscular pumping chamber in the heart and a part of the cardiovascular system. The right ventricle receives deoxygenated blood from the body via the right atrium and pumps it to the lungs through the pulmonary artery. In the lungs, gas exchange occurs and the blood picks up fresh oxygen and releases carbon dioxide.

In a healthy person, the right ventricle works with other three chambers of the heart to pump and move blood in a regular, strong rhythm that is activated by an electrical conduction system. The right ventricle of the heart is supplied with blood by the coronary arteries.

Conditions that afflict the right ventricle of the heart include myocardial infarction, infection, heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, angina, trauma, heart failure, birth defects, cardiac arrest, and atherosclerosis.
