The function of the right atrium is to act as a receiving and concentrating chamber for blood returning to the heart from its trip through the body systems. This blood is low in Oxygen and high in carbon dioxide. When the atrium contracts (beats) it sends its bolus of blood into the right ventricle of the heart which in turn will send the blood on to the lungs.
