Hi Gretings from health care magic
The right atrium receives the deoxgenated blood from the whole body and pass it to right ventricle through tricuspid valve. From Rt ventricle the blood traverse to lungs by Pulmonary artery and in the lungs it exchange the carbon oxide and take oxygen (now it is oxygenated) and comes to left atrium by pulmonary vein. from left atrium it pass to Lt ventricle and then to entire body by aorta emerging out from left ventricle. the left ventricle is atrophic condition that is not in a proper condition. the pulmonary artery and aorta both are coming out from right ventricle. then both oxygenated and deoxygenated blood are mixing together . Keep in touch with your gyenacologist. It is very difficult to keep the child survival. thank you
