How Your Heart Works

The heart is large muscular organ about the size of a fist. It is located in the chest cavity and acts as a powerful pump, moving almost 5 quarts of blood every minute and beating 100,000 beats per day. Together, your heart and blood vessels comprise the cardiovascular system which is responsible for supplying oxygen rich blood throughout the body.
