Caption: Heart and lungs, artwork. The heart is a hollow muscle that pumps blood around the body. Deoxygenated blood from the body is carried into the right side of the heart (left) via the vena cava (dark blue, left). From here, the blood travels into the lungs (light blue) via the pulmonary artery (dark blue, right), where it is oxygenated. The blood is then carried into the left side of the heart (right) before travelling back into the body via the aorta (red, top), where it can exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide and start the cycle all over again.
