Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The venous side of the systemic vascular circulation returns the left ventricular cardiac output in a converging fashion to the superior and inferior vena cava and hence to the right atrium. Oxygenated blood is returned to the left atrium. The volumes of these 2 systems are in balance in a normal physiologic state.
