left and right ventricle function in tabular form The human heart pumps blood throughout the body through the circulatory system that supplies nutrients and oxygen to tissues and removes carbon dioxide and other wastes. The anatomy of the human heart consists of four chambers:
- Right and left atrium
- Right and left ventricle
For its part, the right ventricle receives deoxygenated blood from the right atrium and pumps it to the pulmonary artery. Instead, the left ventricle receives oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium and pumps it into the aorta.
Now let’s look at the difference between left and right ventricle shown in the tabular column below.
Right ventricle vs left ventricle left and right ventricle function in tabular form
Below we show you a comparative table so that you can observe all the distinctions between these parts of the heart organ.
|Right ventricle||Left ventricle|
|Receives deoxygenated blood from the right atrium||Receives oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium|
|Comprises a thin wall||Comprise a thick wall|
|Pumps the received blood to the lungs through the pulmonary trunk||It pumps the received blood throughout the body through the aorta.|
|The cavity is shaped like a half moon.||The cavity is circular in shape.|
|Develops a lower pressure than the left ventricle while pumping blood||Develops increased pressure while pumping blood|
|Triangular in shape and close to the apex of the heart.||Oval in shape and forms the apex of the heart|
The left and right ventricles collectively form the apex of the heart. Since the wall of the left ventricle is thicker than that of the right ventricle, the left ventricle pumps blood with high pressure. The main difference between the right and left ventricle is the pressure of the blood pumped by each ventricle.
