The A in Atrium looks like an upwards pointing arrow, so the atria are the top Chambers of the heart. The V in ventricle looks like a downwards pointing arrow, so the ventricles are the bottom Chambers of the heart. Diagrams of the heart show a view from the front. Imagine someone facing you in front of you holding up the diagram: the left atrium and ventricle are on their left side, and the right atrium and ventricle are on their right side. Blood always enters through the atria, and always leaves through the ventricles. Atrioventricular valves are between the atria and the ventricles. An ArterY carries blood AwaY from the heart. A veIN carries blood INto the heart. A Vein has Valves to prevent backflow because it carries blood at low pressure. An artery has thick, muscular walls because it carries blood at high pressure. The pulmonary artery and vein carry blood to and from the lungs. The word "pulmonary" refers to the lungs. The Vena caVa is a VeIN so it carries blood INto the heart. It doesn't have "pulmonary", so it transports blood from the rest of the body. The Aorta is an ArterY so it carries blood AwaY from the heart. It doesn't have "pulmonary", so it transports blood to the rest of the body. Blood from the body and to the lungs will be deoxygenated. Blood from the lungs and to the body will be oxygenated. Based on this you only need to memorise one pair of a chamber and its matching blood vessels, as you can work out the rest since it is a cycle: The vena cava carries deoxygenated blood from the body to the right atrium. The deoxygenated blood passes through the right ventricle and is pumped to the lungs. The blood becomes oxygenated at the lungs, and is carried to the left atrium through the pulmonary vein. The blood is carried through the left ventricle, and pumped through the aorta to the body. The oxygen from the blood is used by the body, and the blood becomes deoxygenated. The vena cava carries deoxygenated blood from the body to the right atrium. The pacemaker is located in the right atrium. It causes the heart to contract which pumps blood around the body.

I remember as leave the left side to go to the lungs. I remember it this way because left, lung, both start with L.

Left and right are the opposite way round on the paper. The ventricle are at the bottom because the blood TRICKLES down into them from the atrium - venTRICLE. Veins take blood to the heart. Arteries take blood away from the heart. Pulmonary = to do with the lungs. Hope that helps :)
