A healthy heart contracts 70-80 times in a minute and approximately 100.000 times in a day. In this way, 300 lt. of blood is pumped to the whole body in an hour. In a normal heart, there are 4 cavities. 2 upper cavities are called right and left atriums, lower cavities on the other hand are called left and right ventricles. Heart’s duty is to transfer oxygenic blood to whole body.
