The heart is an important part of the body. In humans, it is situated in the middle of the chest, slightly to the left and beats about one million times a day and 60-90 times in a minute. It sends blood to the body with every beat. The heart gets nutrition and oxygen in the blood, which is provided by the coronary arteries. This organ is divided into two parts, right and left. There are two chambers (named atrium and ventricle) on each side, right and left of the heart. In total there are four chambers in the heart. The right part receives contaminated blood from the body and pumps it into the lungs and the blood is purified in the lungs and returns to the left part of the heart from where it is pumped back into the body. Four valves, two to the left (mitral and aortic) and two to the right of the heart (pulmonary and tricuspid) act as one-way gates to direct blood flow.
Even today there is some superstition about heart attack which you need to know as –
- Men have more heart attacks than women, this assumption is wrong.
- Many people believe that men are prone to heart attacks after 40 years of age, and women would have a heart attack after the age of 45 years. While there is no age to have a heart attack, chances are more when the person is older.
Many types of diseases can occur in the heart. Some of these are as follows:
- Heart attack
- Rheumatic heart disease
- Congenital defects
- Cardiac Failure
- Pericardial effusion
