Heart Anatomy

This topic contains a labelled photograph and diagram of the heart. An introduction to the cardiac cycle is given: the heart is briefly described as having four chambers, and the blood-flow within them is described (e.g. if it is oxygenated or deoxygenated). An animation illustrates the direction of blood flow during the cardiac cycle.
