This specialised transportation system delivers oxygen, nutrients and metabolic waste products to tissues and cells throughout the body. Tucker (2000) suggests that “pulmonary circulation is the transport of de-oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs and back again; systemic circulation is the transport of oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the body and back”. This is referred to has double circulation.

The heart, a hollow muscular organ is divided into four chambers. According to Cohen and Taylor (2009) “The upper chambers are the atria, these are mainly blood-receiving chambers. The lower chambers, the ventricles, are the forceful pumps” (p.245). The muscle wall that partitions the left side of the heart from the right is called the septum.
