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.
