Interesting Facts about Human Heart

The adult heart pumps about 9120 liters gallons of blood each day throughout the body.

Every day, the heart creates enough energy to drive a truck 20 miles. In a lifetime, that is equivalent to driving to the moon and back.

The fetal heart rate is approximately twice as fast as an adult’s, at about 150 beats per minute. By the time a fetus is 12 weeks old, its heart pumps an amazing 60 pints (28.4 Ltrs) of blood a day.

The heart pumps blood to almost all of the body’s 75 trillion cells. Only the corneas receive no blood supply

The heart pumps oxygenated blood through the aorta (the largest artery) at about 1 mile (1.6 km) per hour. By the time blood reaches the capillaries, it is moving at around 43 inches (109 cm) per hour. | Site Maintained by Shyam Srinivas | Admin Login
