Ventricle

The ventricles are the two lower chambers of the heart, one on the right and one on the left. The ventricles receive blood from the heart's upper chambers (atria) and pump it to the rest of the body.

The right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs, and the left ventricle pumps blood to the rest of the body.
