PULMONARY VEINS VESSELS THAT BRING OXYGENATED BLOOD BACK FROM THE LUNGS TO THE LEFT ARTIUM
PURKINJIE FIBERS LAST STRUCTURES OF THE INTRINSIC CONDUCTION SYSTEM THAT SURROUND THE HEART VENTRICLES LIKE A NET WHEN AN IMPULSE REACHES THEM THEY PULLL UPWARD CAUSING A STRONG CONTRACTION IN THE VENTRICLES

VENTRICLES CHAMBER TWO LOWER CHAMBERS OF THE HEART THAT CONTRACT TO CAUSE SYSTOLE
APEX THE POINTED BOTTOM OF THE HEART WHICH SITS ON THE DIAPHRAGM IS ANGLED TOWARD THE LEFT SIDE
BASE THE FLATTENED TOP OF THE HEART IT POINTS TOWARD THE RIGHT SHOULDER AND IS THE SITE OF ATTACHMENT FOR THE VESSELS
MEDIASTINUM THE HEART IS LOCATED IN THE THORACIC CAVITY ABOVE THE DIAPHRAGM AND BETWEEN THE LUNGS IN A SPACE
