Hi,

i have to draw an artificial heart in biology 2 class at school. The heart can only have 3 chambers, 2 heart valves, 1 lung, 3 major vena cava entering the heart, 2 pulmonary arteries, 3 pulmonary viens, and two arteries leaving the heart to supply to body with blood.(i cannot add more or less to this.)
and i have to describe how the heart will work mechanically adn how it will move the blood to the one lung and out the rest of the body.

Is this possible?
please if you have any information that can help, please reply back asap.

thank you.

Dear Apoohb,

Yes.  However, it is your job to do your homework, and to not ask me to do it for you.  :-)
