Question: What blood is found on right hand side?

Answer: Our right hand side mostly contains the veins. Veins carry deoxygenated blood which has returned from the cells and is being transported to the heart.

Question: What is deoxygenated blood?

Answer: Deoxygenated blood is a type of blood which contains less or no oxygen, more carbon dioxide and water.

Question: How is deoxygenated blood pumped to lungs?

Answer: When the blood reaches the atrium of the heart, it is transferred to the ventricle of the heart, ventricle pumps the blood to the artery which carries the blood to the lungs.

Question: What happens in lungs?

Answer: When the blood reaches the lungs, carbon dioxide is diffused out into the lungs and oxygen diffuses into the blood, some of the water is also lost in exhalation.

Question: Where is blood taken after lungs?

Answer: blood is taken back to the heart from the lungs by a vein, then the heart pumps the blood to the arteries which is then to the rest of the body.
