Choosing The Best Cardiovascular Specialists

Heart specialists study and understand the structure and functionality of the human heart. They have over a dozen years of education and ongoing research to help them diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. In this article, we will examine where that diagnostic process starts; the form and function of your heart.

What does the heart do?

Choosing The Best Cardiovascular SpecialistsImagine an engine responsible for pumping fuel through 60,000 miles of cable. Now, imagine that the engine works continuously to keep the fuel lines fresh and healthy.

Your heart is your body’s engine and the fuel it pumps is your blood supply. This all happens to the rhythm of 100,000 beats per day; circulating oxygenated blood to your internal organs through a network of intricate vessels.   

What does the heart look like?

An adult heart is about the size of your clenched fist, but none of our hearts started out that way.

The fetal heart develops in several stages during a pregnancy. First, it is a small cluster that begins to emit electrical signals. It slowly develops multiple chambers until the final stage when a fourth chamber develops, and the structure of a human heart emerges.

A healthy heart pumps or “beats” 70 to 80 times a minute. With each heartbeat, a fresh supply of blood circulates through its chambers.

How does the heart work?

As your heart beats, it contracts forcing the blood to circulate. Some of it goes through the top of the heart to receive oxygen from your lungs, while the freshly oxygenated supply travels through your aorta to the rest of your body. More blood enters the heart through veins called the vena cava, and the process begins again.

Our heart is an essential blood delivery system that helps nourish, detoxify, and heal our bodies. These functions are delicate and vital. When something goes wrong we need people with skill and understanding to start the healing process; heart specialists are ready to do just that.
