Structure of Heart
Hollow muscular organ
Heart is divided into several functional parts
  • The Right Atrium and the right ventricle collect non-oxygenated (impure blood) blood from whole body and supply to lungs for oxygenation.
  • The left atrium and the left ventricle supply the oxygenated blood to the whole body.
  • The right and the left heart are separated by a muscular partition (the septum)
 
 
There are heart valves between
  • The right atrium and the right ventricle (Tricuspid Valve)
  • Left atrium and the left ventricle (Mitral Valve)
  • Right ventricle and the pulmonary arteries (Pulmonary Valve)
  • Left ventricle and the aorta (Aortic Valve)
 
 
Heart
 
  • A powerful muscular pump
  • Continuous cardiac activity is synonymous with life
  • Integral part of circulation system
  • Healthy heart pumps pass4sure 920-503 more than 9000 units of blood in a day
  • Although heart is full of blood but it cannot absorb energy from this blood
  • A network of blood vessels known as coronary arteries surround
