CLAIM

1. The ornamental design for a blood flow chamber with directional arrow, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a blood flow chamber with directional arrow showing our new design;

FIG. 2 is a top plan view of the blood flow chamber with directional arrow of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a bottom plan view of the blood flow chamber with directional arrow of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a side elevation view of the blood flow chamber with directional arrow of FIG. 1;

FIG. 5 is one end elevation view of the blood flow chamber with directional arrow of FIG. 1; and,

FIG. 6 is another end elevation view of the blood flow chamber with directional arrow of FIG. 1.

Features illustrated in broken lines in the Figures form no part of the claimed design, and broken lines immediately adjacent the shaded areas represent the bounds of the claimed design.
