The arteries are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the tissues of the body.

A vein is an elastic blood vessel that transports blood from various regions of the body to the heart.

A capillary is an extremely small blood vessel located within the tissues of the body, that transports blood from arteries to veins.

The atria of the heart receive blood returning to the heart from other areas of the body.

The ventricles of the heart function to pump blood to the entire body.

The tricuspid valve forms the boundary between the right ventricle and atrium. 

Bicuspid valve: One of the four valves of the heart, this valve is situated between the left atrium and the left ventricle. It permits blood to flow one way only

The cardiac cycle is the sequence of events that occurs when the heart beats.
