Comments Value for kidney is 950 ml/min or 20%. Value for skeletal muscle is 1030ml/min or 20%. "It must be emphasized that the lungs receive all the blood pumped by the right heart, whereas each of the peripheral organs and tissues receives only a fraction of the blood pumped by the left ventricle. For reference, the typical distribution of the blood pumped by the left ventricle in an adult at rest is given in figure 14-9."
