All About the Heart

How does the heart stay healthy?



The Heart

How fast does your heart beat?

We can exercise, eat healthy, and get lots of sleep. Smoking can damage your heart. Our heart is between the lungs and behind the ribcage.The left side pumps blood to the body.The right side of your heart pumps blood to the lungs.

A human heart is the size of your fist. An adult heart weighs about 11 ounces. An elephant's heart can weigh up to 50 pounds!

Children have a faster heartbeat than adults. The average 2-year old has a heart rate of 110 beats per minute, while a newborn's heart can easily beat at 140. Heartbeat slows down as children grow. A 10-year old has an average healthy heart rate of 95.Healthy adults have a heart rate of between 60 and 90 or 100 beats per minute.When you exercise your heart beats faster to get more oxygen and nutrients to your muscles. Our heart beats slowly when we are calm and quickly when we are excited. When you smoke, it damages your heart.
