The heart is part of the Cardiovascular System and is found in the human body in the left centre (between the [[Lungs|lungs]). 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].
