Angie/Ruk handout

  1. 1. Heart Development and Ventricles Week 1 and 2 Facts, The Development of the Heart: ● your heart chambers will start developing by the time you are 25 days old in your mothers womb. ● your heart rate is about 110-160 heartbeats per minute ● when you're 5-6 weeks old in your mom's stomach, your heart is finally beating ● childhood is when your heart beats fastest, because that’s when it’s developing the most, and it needs more oxygen Week 3 and 4 Facts, The Ventricles: ● the heart ventricles are two of four heart chambers: the right and left atriums, and the right and left ventricles. ● the ventricles' job is to pump blood to the rest of the body ● The left ventricle gets the oxygenated blood from the left atrium and then gives the blood to the aortic valve ● The right ventricles gets the deoxygenated air from the right atrium, and gives the blood to the pulmonary valve, this is what happens each time it beats ● a result of the left ventricle failing is a heart attack, because the heart won't be able to give blood to your body
