The heart is an integral organ of the circulatory system and the process of pumping blood to all the organs of the body is done by the heart. The rib cage protects the heart and that’s because of its importance inside the body and the survival of the human. The size of human heart is roughly a fist.

Blood vessels are systems that distributes blood in the body and this process is done through the systole of the heart to pump blood regularly. The heart has four chambers that work together to perform the heart function and pump the blood. These chambers are placed on the left and the right side. The right chambers include the unclean and deoxygenated blood, and the left chambers include clean blood and blood that contains oxygen.


Cardiology is considered one of the branches of internal medicine and is concerned with the treatment of heart disease, health and circulatory system. The branch of Cardiology diagnoses diseases and the symptoms of them. A cardiologist is a specialist in this field. Cardiology includes the functions of some branches such as cardiology and arteries, interventional cardiology, heart and neurology, nuclear cardiology and other relevant cardiovascular issues.

In this disease the heart beats either very slowly or very quickly. Arrhythmias occurs when the heart is confronted with some changes in the short circuit of the heart or in the electrical system related to the heart. The irregular heartbeat may lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart failure.
