Why the Human Heart beats (contracts)?
Unlike most muscles, which rely on nerve impulses to cause them to contract, heart muscle can contract of its own accord. Certain heart muscle cells have the ability to con
tract spontaneously, and these cells generate electrical signals that spread to the rest of the heart and cause it to contract with a regular, steady beat.
The heartbeat begins with a small group of specialized muscle cells located in the upper right-hand corner of the Right Atrium. This area is known as the Sinoatrial Node (SA). Cells in the Sinoatrial Node generate their electrical signals more frequently than cells elsewhere in the heart, so the electrical signals generated by the Sinoatrial Node synchronize the electrical signals traveling to the rest of the heart. For this reason, the Sinoatrial Node is also known as the heart���s Pacemaker.
The Human Heart is divided into Four Chambers and has Four Valve
s that assure the flow of blood in one direction:
