The heart and It's Functions. Sources Conclusion A hollow, muscular organ that pumps blood throughout the
body is called the human heart. The heart is locate in the
chest. It lies behind the sternum (breastbone) and inside
the rib cage. The Heart's Parts Right Atrium-receives blood from the body that is low in oxygen and heavy in carbon dioxide
Right Ventricle-pumps oxygen-poor blood to the lungs
Septum-keeps oxygen-poor blood and oxygen- rich blood from mixing
Left Atrium-oxygen-rich blood comes from the lungs
Left Ventricle-pumps oxygen-rich to the rest of the body
Aorta-Artery that carries blood to the rest of the body Conditions Your hearts conditions is very critical.Some conditions
are very minor and some are major.People in the world
don't really pay attention to whats inside their body than
the outside. Heart Conditions(con.) A Heart Attack The Human Heart By: Niti Patel Its Function Each time the heart beats, its pushes blood through the blood vessels of the cardiovascular system. The heart pushes blood in "2 loops". It pushes oxygen-poor blood to the lungs and back to the heart. It pushes oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body and back. Definition Atria- upper chambers of the heart
Ventricles- Lower chambers of the heart
Septum- wall between right and left
Aorta- major artery Heart Murmur Heart murmurs are abnormal extra sound made when the heart beats. It is produced by blood moving through the heart and its valve. It can also be caused by emotions.Such as stress or fear or by health problem such as fever. Heart murmurs have no symptoms. Unless a pathological heart murmur, those include shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pains, and congestion of the lungs.Heart murmurs can be diagnosed just by a doctor listening to your heart through a stethoscope. Innocent heart murmur requires no treatment and there is no way to prevent it. Pathological heart murmur may need surgery. A heart attack is caused by the heart deaths of or damage to, parts of the heart muscle. It usually occurs when the supply of blood to the heart is greatly reduced or stopped. Is also called myocardial infarction. Heart attacks are usually caused by severe coronary artery disease (CAD). The coronary arteries are blood vessels that gives or supplies the heart blood. Risk factor increase the chance for getting CAD:
Age, Gender, Smoking, High cholesterol and blood pressure, and lack of exercise
The first stage in treating a heart attack is to keep the patient alive. If the patient has stopped breathing CPR may be needed. Di fibrillation is used if the patient heart is beating irregular patterns. An electric shock stops the beating briefly, then starts up again beating in a regular pattern. The patient may need oxygen therapy. In oxygen therapy,the patient is allowed to breath air in which extra air is added. The extra air helps the heart work easier. The Patient may also be given a variety of drugs. The heart is a vital organ, for your body to survive. The heart is not so complex. It has its parts and if you don't keep it healthy it might fail. Sometimes it can just be something small that doesn't need a treatment. Treat your body well and your body will treat you well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incandescent_light_bulb
