The Organ We Love – How The Heart Works

Be the strongest muscle in the body, in the heart control is to pump blood through our blood vessels by rhythmic contractions. To regulate blood pressure and volume, the secrets of the heart “ANF, which is a very potent peptide hormone. Affect the regulatory region of the brain and kidneys, blood vessels, and adrenal glands.

First of all, I want to clarify a rumor in the world; the heart is not in the left side of her body! Your current position is at the center of your chest, just a little left hand, and below the sternum. For additional protection, the heart was wrapped in a bag called the pericardium, and is surrounded by the lungs. The first thought is, “Why the strongest in the body much needed protection” muscle is weak Weighing about 300 grams, the heart consists of four chambers, two ventricles and two atria upper lower valves?.!. between the atrium and an adequate control to the other ventricle blood flow.

The work of pumping blood throughout the body is a big responsibility. Each heartbeat comprises a known event in the cardiac cycle sequence. “Heart” is Greek, meaning “heart.” There are three important steps in the sequence: atrial systole, ventricular systole and complete cardiac diastole. After the blood has completely left atria, the atrioventricular valves (located between the atria and ventricles rooms), close to prevent backflow. This function is what you recognize as your heartbeat. Then, there is a contraction of the ventricles and the flow of blood in the circulatory system. This is called ventricular systole. Again, known as “lung” and close to prevent backflow aortic semilunar.” After these two steps valves, the heart takes a quick break called complete cardiac diastole. This allows loading and blood again process.

Now you have a little knowledge of how the heart works, let’s talk about some problem identification. Heart failure puts a heavy burden on the 5.1 million patients and their families in the failure of the United States heart also cost billions of our system of health care dollars a year, mostly in costs frequent hospitalizations. In one year, more than 80% of patients with heart failure requiring hospital care at least once, and nearly half are hospitalized four times. However, new medical treatments and a better understanding of heart failure help more patients to stay healthy longer and out of the hospital.

Of course, all these symptoms are not present, and unfortunately in some cases involving women, none of them can seem.

Congestive heart failure requiring drug and parameters of complex life style treatments. This is a simple test debuted in 2014 ACC may allow physicians to identify patients at risk early and take preventive measures. These are welcome developments as they give to patients with mild to moderate jump a longer life expectancy and those with advanced for a better quality of life for the rest of their lives disease. A more complete story on these developments and some details about 2014 ACC this test can be found by going to Duke Medicine.
