The three 'short circuits' are labelled in red 38 Anatomy at a Glance, Third Edition. Omar Faiz, Simon Blackburn and David Moffat. c 2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd. Published 2011 by Blackwell Publishing Ltd. Because the fetal lungs are functionless, the essentials for the fetal circulation (Fig. 1) are that oxygenated blood and nutrients are passed from the placenta via the umbilical vein to the left side of the heart as directly as possible and, to this end, there are three short circuits or shunts: 1 The ductus venosus which bypasses the liver and directs most of the blood from the umbilical vein into the inferior vena cava.

The spinous processes of the thoracic vertebrae can be palpated and counted in the midline posteriorly. r The scapula is located on the upper posterior chest wall. In slim subjects, the superior angle, inferior angle, spine and medial (vertebral) border of the scapula are easily palpable. Lines of orientation These are imaginary vertical lines used to describe locations on the chest wall. They include: r The mid-clavicular line: a vertical line from the midpoint of the clavicle downwards. r The anterior and posterior axillary lines: from the anterior and posterior axillary folds, respectively, vertically downwards.

Thus, some of this blood passes into the hepatic sinusoids, but most of it is diverted through the wide ductus venosus into the inferior vena cava, where it mixes with venous blood. Upon entering the right atrium, the stream of blood encounters the free border of the septum secundum which directs most of the blood through the foramen ovale into the left atrium and thence to the left ventricle. The rest of the blood remains in the right atrium and is mixed with the venous blood returning to the heart from the head and upper limbs via the superior vena cava; it then passes into the right ventricle and thence to the pulmonary trunk.
