Its function is to pump oxygenated blood around the body and to collect deoxygenated blood. These two processes are seperated into the heart' left and right hand side respectively[1] which are subdivided into chambers [2]. The Upper chambers are known as the Atria, and the lower chambers are called the ventricles.[3]
