The ventricles are the two lower chambers of the heart, one on the
right and one on the left. The ventricles receive blood from the heart's upper
chambers (atria) and pump it to the rest of the body.
The right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs, and the left
ventricle pumps blood to the rest of the body.
