E-BOOK DESCRIPTION

The heart is a cone-shaped, muscular organ. It’s located in the chest, behind the sternum in the mediastinal cavity (or mediastinum), between the lungs, and in front of the spine. The heart lies tilted in this area like an upside-down triangle. The top of the heart, or its base, lies just below the second rib; the bottom of the heart, or its apex, tilts forward and down, toward the left side of the body, and rests on the diaphragm. (See Location of the pediatric heart.) The heart varies in size depending on the person’s body size, but the organ is roughly 5″ (12.5 cm) long and 3½″ (9 cm) wide, or about the size of the person’s fist. The heart’s weight, typically 9 to 12 oz (255 to 340 g), varies depending on the person’s size, age, sex, and athletic conditioning. An athlete’s heart usually weighs more than that of the average person, and an elderly person’s heart weighs less. (See The older adult heart.) There are differences in male and female cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. A smaller heart and coronary vessels are seen in females versus males. Varying levels of estrogen may be reasons for gender variants in cardiac disease.
