Some Cardiac Terms To Know
The heart is possibly the hardest physically working organ in the body. A healthy heart positively influences all other body parts and systems.
To have a rough idea of the magnitude of the work accomplished by the heart, consider the following facts:
Everyday the heart of a healthy adult beats about 100 000 times.
Daily, the heart has to supply more than 75 trillion cells with well-oxygenated blood to feed them and sustain life.
In one year, the heart pumps about 6 million liters of blood to the rest of the body and to the lungs.
Because the heart has its own independent electrical system, it can keep beating for sometimes even after separation from the body.
The cells of the heart stop multiplying at an early age and so the likelihood of regenerating new cells after damage is very low.
These are just a few facts that exemplify the need for heart care at all ages.
There are many ways of taking care of this hard working organ so that it can continue serving you for the longest time possible.
Generally speaking, a healthy lifestyle has a positive effect on heart health.
The choices made in everyday living are important determinants of how healthy a person’s heart will be.
