Just imagine your heart being the machine that runs the boat.

This machine has several chambers like the right atrium, left atrium, right ventricle and left ventricle. And each atrium is connected to the ventricles by valves and each ventricle is connected with pipes (Blood vessels) like the pulmonary artery and aorta.
