Your Heart is a Human Electrical System (Video)

Pumping blood and powering your body, beat by beat

Electrical System of the Heart

The heart is a big muscle, and like all muscles, it conducts electrical impulses that keep your blood circulating through your body. The entire circulatory system isn’t unlike the electrical system in a house—which most people don’t think about unless the system fails. But when it’s running well, your heart’s electrical system is an amazing thing.

In this white board session, Patrick J. Tchou, MD, Associate Section Head of the Section of Electrophysiology and Cardiac Pacing in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, explains how your heart serves as a special power source to keep your blood pumping, beat by beat.
