Understanding How Your Heart Works

Last updated 4 years ago

A healthy life starts with a healthy heart. Most people know that their hearts supply oxygenated blood to feed your organs, but how does it really work? This video explains.

Watch this video to learn about the different chambers and valves in your heart and how they work together to get oxygen-rich blood to your body tissue. When your heart is working optimally, it pumps out oxygenated blood and receives de-oxygenated blood to replenish with oxygen. Without the action of your heart, the rest of the organs in your body couldn’t get the nutrients they need to do their own jobs.

When your heart falters, Palms of Pasadena Hospital is here to help. Our St. Petersburg hospital provides emergency care when necessary, along with a comprehensive range of non-invasive cardiac diagnostic tests and treatments.  For more information, call our St. Petersburg hospital at (855) 245-8328.
