What does the heart consist of?
SecondsCount.org answeredThe heart is divided into four chambers, the left and right atria (the top chambers) and the left and right ventricles (the bottom chambers). A thick wall called the septum separates the left side of the heart from the right. Four valves that act as one-way doors within the heart carefully regulate blood flow through the heart’s chambers keeping blood on a “one-way street” through the heart and out to the body.
What is the difference between a general surgeon and a surgical oncologist?
