Pulmocutaneous circulation

Pulmocutaneous circulation is the part of the amphibian circulatory system that directs blood to the skin and the lungs. In the Amphibian Circulatory system, blood flows from the ventricle (amphibians only have one) into an artery called the conus arteriosus and from there into either the left or right truncus arteriosus which each split the ventricle's output into the pulmocutaneous circuit and the systemic circuit.
