Deoxygenated Blood Pumped to the Lungs

As the right atrium contracts, the corresponding lower chamber, the right ventricle, dilates. This transfers the blood to the right ventricle, which in turn pumps it to the lungs for oxygenation.

Lungs Oxygenates the Blood

In the  lungs, the blood gets oxygenated . 

Oxygenated Blood returns to the Heart

Oxygen rich blood from the lungs comes to the thin-walled upper chamber of the heart on the left, i.e. left atrium.The left atrium relaxes when it is collecting the blood.It then contracts and the blood is allowed to enter in the next chamber i.e. left ventricle, as it expands.

Oxygenated Blood Pumped to the Body

When the muscular left ventricle contracts, the blood is pumped out to the body via aorta.
