HEALTH COMMUNITY CORNER

 

February is American Heart Month.  This month, we will go over various topics of heart health related for you and your family.  We will look at what the heart is and how it works, numbers and values that are important for heart health, symptoms you should be aware of that might indicate heart problems, and ways to improve your heart health.

First, it is important to know what your heart is and what it does for your body.  It is an important organ in our body that is comprised of specialized cardiac muscle.  Its main function is to receive oxygenated blood that circulates from our lungs, pump that oxygen rich blood around our body, and then return the used blood back to our lungs for oxygenation again.  Blood is directed through the heart by 4 one-way valves during the contraction cycle.    

 

Although the heart circulates our body's blood, it gets its nutrition from a different source.  The coronary vascular system provides the blood supply to the cardiac muscle in order for it to function.

 

Just like the other muscles we see on our body, our cardiac musculature can gain or lose strength depending on how we use it.  

Next week we will look at important numbers and values associated with the heart and how they affect you.
