Right Atrium: Tricuspid valve
Drains heart's deoxygenated blood
Posterior smooth wall
Anterior rough wall
Vertical ridge
Remnant of foramen ovalis
Leaf/appendage, rough because of pectinate muscles

Tricuspid Valve:
Three cusps
Right Ventricle:
Smooth region below pulmonary valve
Elevated muscles in ventricle
Trabeculae carneae between septum to ventricular wall; carries conductive impulses
