Cardiovascular Quizzes & Trivia

Did you know that a kitchen faucet would need to be turned all the way for at least 45 years to equal the amount of blood pumped by the heart in an average lifetime? If you put your circulatory system on a straight line, it is actually long enough to orbit the earth two and a half times. Early Egyptians believed that the heart and other major organs had wills of their own and would move around inside the body.

By now, you may have understood that these next quizzes are about the cardiovascular system. “What is the largest vein in the body?”, “What is the medical speciality concerning the cardiovascular system?”, “Who invented the stethoscope?”, and “What’s the name of the surgeon that performed the first ever heart transplant?” are the type of questions you’ll find the answers to.
