Heart Dissection || Love the Lub-Dub
How does your heart pump blood? Learn how to dissect a heart in this video, which also covers its external and internal anatomy and physiology. In this simple dissection of a heart, you’ll learn various parts of its physiology, how the heart filters blood, and the chambers of the heart.
The heart is a vital part of the human body. They carry out the extremely important task of pumping blood to the entire body. How do they do it? Their various parts and how they work are fascinating to learn about! Also, did you know that the left ventricle has thicker walls than the right? In this video, you’ll learn general information about the heart, which will be tied into its anatomical structures.
This dissection lab is for anyone who is curious about heart anatomy, wants to cover heart anatomy for a course, missed the heart dissection during biology class, or just wondered, “How does my heart work?”. The video will teach you how to dissect a heart step by step, and review the external and internal anatomy of the heart.
In this video, we’ll cover the following structures:
Auricles Pulmonary valve
Coronary artery Left atrium
Right atrium Pulmonary vein
Vena cava Left ventricle
Right ventricle Mitral (bicuspid) valve
Pulmonary artery Aorta
Tricuspid valve Semilunar valve
Chordae Tendineae (heartstrings) Myocardium
Papillary muscles Epicardium
