We know that the human heart is an incredible pumping machine. Join Rachel Wallace Ph.D., Jessica Ibarra Ph.D., Brian Miller Ph.D. as they take you on an exploration of the human heart. Did you know that every time the heart beats, blood is pumped from the heart to the lungs and to the entire body? A heart in a human being who is 80 years old will have beaten approximately 3 billion times. A single heart can be described as containing two different pumps – one side pumps blood to the lungs where it can absorb oxygen, the other side pumps the oxygenated blood to the entire body. In this presentation, we will demonstrate certain major elements of the anatomy of the human heart, including the four major heart valves, and explain how these valves function and generate the distinct sounds heard during each heartbeat.
