Properties of arteries
small lumin, and a thick wall of muscle and elastic tissue

Veins
pumps blood towards the heart e.g Vena Carva

Inferior Vena Carva
Brings deoxygenated blood from the systemic circuit back to the right ventricle.

Superior Vena Carva
Brings deoxygenated blood from upper parts of the body

Pulmonary Vein
Brings oxygenated blood from the right lung to the left atrium
7 of 10
Pulmonary Artery
Takes deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the pulmonary circuit (the lungs)
8 of 10
Aorta
Takes oxygenated blood around the systemic circuit

tricuspid valve
Also known as atrioventricular valve. Is found in between the right atrium and right ventricle.Prevents back flow of blood from the right ventricle into the right atrium.
