    Anatomy
    atrio masculine
    • In a person without a heart defect, blood that's in need of oxygen flows from all parts of the body to the right atrium and then to the right ventricle, where it's then pumped to the lungs to receive oxygen.
    • The right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body.
    • Blood flows from the atria to the ventricles through a one-way valve.
    • When the heart relaxes in between beats, the two ‘flaps’ of the mitral valve swing open to let blood flow from the atrium to the ventricle.
    • The right atrium and ventricle were severely dilated and hypertrophied.
    • The left atrium of the heart receives oxygenated (oxygen-rich) blood from the lungs and then empties into the left ventricle through the mitral valve.
