Heart Physiology

This topic starts with an introduction to the cardiac cycle and is supported by an animation showing the direction of blood flow in the heart. The stages of the cardiac cycle (e.g. early diastole) are detailed. The topic concludes with a description of cardiac output and a sample calculation is given.
