The heart consists of four chambers that receive blood from the body and pump out blood to it.
The heart also consists of four valves that prevent backward flow of blood. Each valve has flaps, called leaflets, that allow forward flow of blood and prevent the backward flow.
Valves are flaps that act as one-way inlets for blood entering and leaving the chambers and ventricles.
Blood vessels bring blood to the lungs, where oxygen enters the bloodstream, and then to the body.
An electrical system controls how fast the heart beats.
A network of arteries and veins also carry blood throughout the body.
