Heart Quizzes & Trivia

Welcome to Anatomy of Heart Quiz! The heart is charged with the sole function of pumping blood throughout the body and, in so doing, ensuring nutrients can be transported with ease. It carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs, where it loads up with oxygen and unloads carbon dioxide. Test your knowledge of the heart anatomy by taking up the quiz below. All the best, and good luck!
