Human Heart Circulation

How does blood travel through the heart?

The circulatory system is formed by the beating of the heart which then pumps blood through a system of blood vessels. These vessels are elastic tubes that carry blood to every part of the human body.

Blood vessels carry fresh oxygen from the lungs and nutrients to our body's tissues. However, it also takes the body's waste products, including carbon dioxide, away from the tissues. This action is needed to sustain life and promote the health of all the human body's tissues.

7 Interesting facts about the circulatory system

The system of blood vessels that include arteries, veins, and capillaries is over 60,000 miles long.

The heart has 4 heart valves- mitral, tricuspid, aortic, and pulmonic valves.

The heart beats around 50 to 99 times a minute.

The beating of the heart can reach up to 100 beats per minute, due to external and internal factors (exercise, medication, fever, emotion, etc.).

Blood flows continuously through your our body's blood vessels.

Heartbeats (expands and contracts) 100,000 times per day, pumping 5 or 6 quarts of blood each minute, or about 2,000 gallons per day.

The right and left sides of the heart work together.
