Heart Quizzes & Trivia

The heart is a very important organ in the human body as it is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. The heart valves function like one-way doors which allow blood flow through in the forward direction but prevent the flow of blood. Take up this interesting quiz on the heart and parts of the heart and get to learn more about it.
