Structural Differences Between Right and Left Ventricles

The right ventricle pushes blood through the pulmonary circuit at lower pressure and its wall is thinner than that of the left ventricle. The left ventricle needs to generate 6 to 7 times as much force and as a consequence has a much thicker wall.

In cross section, the wall of the left ventricle is thick and circular while the thinner wall of the right ventricle is like a pouch attached to the wall of the left ventricle.

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
