Pulmonary Artery : How To Remember Easily ?
P – Pulmonary Circulation: The pulmonary artery is a crucial part of the pulmonary circulation.
U – Under Right Atrium: The pulmonary artery originates from the right ventricle and passes under the right atrium.
L – Lung Blood: It carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs for oxygenation.
M – Main Artery: The pulmonary artery is the main artery responsible for carrying blood to the lungs.
O – Oxygenation: Its primary function is to deliver deoxygenated blood to the lungs for oxygenation.
N – Narrowing: Pulmonary artery narrowing (stenosis) can lead to various cardiovascular issues.
A – Arterial Blood: It carries deoxygenated arterial blood to the lungs.
R – Right Ventricular Origin: The pulmonary artery originates from the right ventricle of the heart.
T – Tricuspid Valve: Blood flows from the right atrium to the right ventricle through the tricuspid valve before entering the pulmonary artery.
E – Ejection: During the ejection phase of the cardiac cycle, blood is pumped into the pulmonary artery.
R – Receives Deoxygenated Blood: The pulmonary artery receives deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle, which it then sends to the lungs for oxygenation.
Y – Y-shaped Branch: The pulmonary artery divides into two branches, resembling the letter Y, as it enters the lungs.
