You can see the form of the heart and the parts that make up the blood flow system in the diagram of the heart above. The heart itself is located between the lungs in the middle of the chest, behind and slightly to the left of the breastbone (sternum). A double-layered membrane called the pericardium surrounds your heart like a sac. The outer layer of the pericardium surrounds the roots of the heart’s major blood vessels and is attached by ligaments to the spinal column, diaphragm, and other parts of the body. Take a look at the following diagram of how the heart works below.
The heart weighs between 7 and 15 ounces and works as a pump that pushes blood to the organs, tissues, and cells of the body. Blood is carried from the heart to the rest of the body through a complex network of arteries, arterioles, and capillaries. The right and left pulmonary arteries branch off the main pulmonary trunk. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. Meanwhile, the valves are one-way doors that separate the chambers of the heart. Now after you understand the parts, try to label the following heart diagram.
The unlabeled diagrams given above will help you in testing your understanding of heart anatomy. Check back soon for more educational diagrams!
