Get a handful labeled anatomy of the human heart diagrams to assist your study about the anatomy of our heart. These 101 Diagramss are designed to guide you in studying the structure of the human heart. These human heart diagrams use different colors to show different parts and also labels to show a number of important heart component such as the aorta, pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle, right ventricle, inferior vena cava and superior vena cava among others. For more information on the heart, check out our collection of human heart diagram in the following images below.
The heart is a muscular pump. When it beats it pumps blood to the lungs and around the body. In the human heart diagram above, the heart is seen from the front. So the right side of the heart is shown on the left of the diagram. The left side is on the right side of the diagram. The heart takes in deoxygenated blood through the veins and delivers it to the lungs for oxygenation before pumping it into the various arteries (which provide oxygen and nutrients to body tissues by transporting the blood throughout the body). Check out the other heart diagrams below.
The heart is located in the thoracic cavity medial to the lungs and posterior to the sternum. The heart wall is made of 3 layers: epicardium, myocardium and endocardium. The heart contains 4 chambers: the right atrium, left atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle. The coronary arteries run along the surface of the heart and provide oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle.
