Right Ventricle

The right ventricle is the lower right-hand chamber of the heart. Together with the left ventricle, it forces blood out of the heart into the arteries to be carried back to the various sites throughout the body. The right ventricle has a much thinner wall than the left ventricle. This chamber pumps blood a fairly short distance to the lungs.
