An average heart will beat approximately 100,000 times per day. The average 70-year-old person’s heart will have pumped almost 1.5 million gallons of blood.

In this course you will learn about the heart, its structures, the vessels that circulate the blood, and the components of the blood. You will trace the path that blood takes through the heart and the entire body and learn about the conduction system (electrical activity) of the heart.
