Human’s heart is an amazing organ. It continuously pumps oxygen and nutrient-rich blood throughout your body to sustain life. This fist-sized powerhouse beats (expands and contracts) 100,000 times per day, pumping five or six quarts of blood each minute, or about 2,000 gallons per day. As the heart beats, it pumps blood through a system of blood vessels, called the circulatory system. The vessels are elastic, muscular tubes that carry blood to every part of the body. See the following heart blood flow diagrams to see the details of the system.
Blood is essential in human’s body. In addition to carrying fresh oxygen from the lungs and nutrients to your body’s tissues, it also takes the body’s waste products, including carbon dioxide, away from the tissues. This is necessary to sustain life and promote the health of all the body’s tissues. The flow of blood through the heart follows a very deliberate path to ensure that oxygenated blood from the lungs passes through major arteries and gets delivered to body tissues. This process occurs on an average of 70 to 75 times a minute, pumping about 2,000 gallons of blood every day.
