2. Call the Plumber!!

The heart not only pumps blood to the lungs to collect oxygen, but it is the pumping station to get that essential oxygen to the rest of the body. And don’t forget, the muscles of the heart also need their own supply of oxygen. Any obstruction in these critical “pipes” is going to cause damage: back-ups, blockages and death of tissue. That is a heart attack. When that tissue is a critical area like the brain or the heart itself, immediate attention is needed. Learn all about this essential organ.

3. Do I Need an Electrician?

The heart is an electrical marvel! Wiring, amps, voltage, on and off switches – electricity flowing along in a normal pattern supplies the charge along the walls. Just like your home needs energy to light up lamps and heat up toasters, so does your heart. When a-fib (atrial fibrillation) or cardiac ventricular arrhythmia happens, that electricity flow is interrupted and the current is no longer flowing smoothly. Come learn about the electrical side of your heart.
