Ventricles of the Heart

Summary Information: Ventricles of the Heart

Ventricles of the Heart: There is two ventricles of the heart, the left ventricle and the right ventricle. The ventricles are separate chambers made up of muscle, or myocardium. The right ventricle pumps deoxygenated blood to the lungs, where gas exchange occurs and the blood picks up fresh oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. The left ventricle receives freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs through the left atrium and pumps it to the other organs and areas of the rest of the body. In a healthy person, the chambers of the heart work together to pump and move blood in a regular, strong rhythm, which is activated by an electrical conduction system. The ventricles of the heart are supplied with blood by the coronary arteries.

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