A dissection of a heart on Thursday

A dissection of a heart
on Thursday, we dissected a heart. we found chordae tendinae, papillary muscles, and the four atria and ventricles.
How we did it
first, we used scalpels to slice down the left side of the aorta, and looked inside. next, we compared heart wall thickness, and found the left wall was almost twice that of the right side. some of us found blood clots on our hearts. we looked at the valves and compared to the pictures we studied.
the anatomy of the heart.
in the heart there are multiple structures. there are valves to stop blood flowing the wrong way.
