The path of a red blood cell through the body to the heart

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