Transcript

  • 1. Human Heart
  • 2.  
  • 3. Human Heart
    • Human heart has four chambers - two atria and two ventricles.
    • The right side of the heart is completely separated from the left side.
  • 4. Human Heart
    • The right side of the heart receives blood from the body and pumps it to the lungs.
    • Left side of the heart receives blood from the lungs and pumps it to the body.
  • 5. Heart Muscles
    • Heart is made up of cardiac muscles.
    • Cardiac muscles can carry on contracting regularly without resting or getting fatigued.
  • 6. Vena Cava
    • The inferior and superior vena cava collect deoxygenated blood from the tissues and carry it to heart.
  • 7. Inferior Vena Cava
    • Collects blood from lower parts of the body and delivers it to the right atrium
  • 8. Superior Vena Cava
    • Collects blood from the upper part of the body and delivers it to the right atrium
  • 9. Right Atrium
    • Receives blood from the vena cavae.
    • The blood is pumped into the ventricles when the atria contracts.
  • 10. Tricuspid valve
    • This atrio-ventricular valve separates the right atrium from the right ventricle.
    • The valve is made up of three flaps.
    • Tough tendinous cords (also called heart strings) are attached to the valves and the walls of the ventricle.
    • These heart strings allow the valves to open only in one direction.
  • 11. Right ventricle
    • The right ventricle receives deoxygenated blood from the right atrium.
    • Blood is pumped into the pulmonary arteries as the ventricles contract.
    • Semi lunar valves present at the base of the pulmonary artery prevent backflow of blood.
  • 12. Pulmonary veins
    • The blood is carried back to the heart from lungs by pulmonary veins.
  • 13. Left atrium
    • Oxygenated blood from the lungs is collected by the left atrium.
    • It opens into the left ventricle.
  • 14. Bicuspid valve (Mitral Valve)
    • Protects the opening between left atrium and left ventricle.
    • The valve is made up of two flaps.
  • 15. Left Ventricle
    • Collects oxygenated blood from left atrium.
    • When the left ventricle contracts, blood is pumped into the aorta.
    • The muscular walls of the left side is much thicker than that of the right.
  • 16. Aorta
    • This is the largest artery in the body.
    • It carries oxygenated blood from the left ventricle to all parts of the body.
    • Semi lunar valves present at the base of the aorta prevents the backflow of blood.
