  • The path of a redblood cell through the body to the heart
    NOTE: Use space bar to move animations
    By Keilan Milwain-Sedlak
  • It all starts by the left ventricle of the heart contracting and getting smaller
    The heart
    Left ventricle
  • It then pushes red blood cells into the aorta so the process of the cells traveling through a series of arteries can begin
    Aorta
  • Once the blood cells have travel through the arteries it then reaches the capillary
    Blood cells
    Capillary
  • Body tissue
    Red blood cells
    Oxygen molecules
    From there oxygen molecules
    then break off into the body's tissue
  • Un-oxygenated blood
    Body tissue
    This way to Heart
    Now the un-oxygenated blood makes
    its way back to the heart
  • Un-oxygenated blood is here transferred to the heart
    Un-oxygenated blood cells
  • Un-oxygenated blood
    Vain
    The un-oxygenated blood travels through the vain and is then sent to the right atrium
  • The right atrium
    Red blood cells
    The blood cells here get passed through the right atrium and are lead to the right ventricle
  • Right ventricle
    Blood cells
    Pulmonary arteries
    Oxygen molecules
    Lungs
    The blood cells pass through the right ventricle and go through the pulmonary arteries. The blood cells pick up oxygen molecules on the way and deliver them to the lungs.
  • Oxygenated blood
    Left ventricle
    Blood cells
    Once the oxygenated blood has been passed through the left ventricle the blood cells start the process again
