Blood comes to the right side of the heart from the lower and upper body.
Blood fills the right atrium.
From the right atrium, blood falls through a valve (tricuspid) into the right ventricle.


The tricuspid valve closes, and the pulmonary valve opens.
Blood is pumped from the right ventricle through the pulmonary valve to the lungs.
