Answer ::

Septum – completely separates the into the left and right sides to prevent the mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood.

The heart has four chambers two atria and two ventricles. The right atrium receives oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the right ventricle. The right ventricle pumps the oxygen-poor blood to the lungs. The left atrium receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the left ventricle. The left ventricle pumps the oxygen-rich blood to the body. The one-way valves present in the heart prevents the backflow of blood, so, O2 rich and CO2 rich blood can not be mixed.
