The ventricle is a heart chamber from which blood is pumped out. There are two ventricles in the human heart: right and left. The right ventricle forces blood into pulmonary circulation, sending the blood through the lungs for oxygenation. The left ventricle forces the blood into systemic circulation, oxygenating various tissues and muscles throughout the human body.
