Every moment of your life, your heart is pumping blood throughout your body. If you wish to learn the details of how your heart works, take a look at this video.
Your heart pumps an amazing five quarts of blood every minute, and beats around 100,000 times a day. After circulating throughout your body, oxygen-poor blood enters your heart’s right side. Then, blood is pumped into your lungs, where it becomes replenished with oxygen before returning to the left side of the heart and recirculating throughout the body. Electrical pulses are responsible for keeping your heart at a steady rhythm.
