What is the heart ?

The heart is truly the most fascinating part of the body. From the moment it begins beating, right until the moment it stops, the human heart works without a break. In an average lifetime, the heart beats more than two and a half BILLION times, without ever pausing to rest. And as it beats, it gives LIFE.

No other organ has caught the imagination of painters and poets alike. The heart is purest theater, throbbing in its cage palpably as any nightingale. Let danger threaten, and the thrilling heart skips a beat, and tight-rope walks arrhythmically. And all the while, we feel it, hear it even - WE, its stage and its audience.

It was not the livers or brains or entrails of saints that were lifted from the body in sublimest autopsy. It was the heart they cradled into worshipful palms, then soaked in wine and herbs and set into silver relinquaries for the veneration of the faithful.

It follows quite naturally that Love should choose such an organ for its bower. When Love blooms therein, the heart dances - and tremor cordis is upon one !

The heart has from time immemorial been surrounded by an aura of mystery and awe. Although some of this has been dispelled by the "cold reality" of modern science and technology, which has unravelled the mechanics of the heart, the air of fascination and wonder that the heart inspires in man has not diminished.

So JOIN ME THEN, and we will explore this wonderful organ....

Discover the complexities of its structure.... Journey down the blood stream and experience the efficiency of the circulation.... See how diseases of the heart are detected.... Marvel at the miracle that is "Open Heart Surgery".... Learn about the people who make it happen.... Understand all about the different birth defects of the heart, and how they are repaired.

And soon, your fascination and curiosity will turn into understanding and respect - for this magnificent work of creation called THE HEART !

Shall we begin then ? You can start right away.
