This chapter describes the mechanical events that generate the heart’s truly remarkable output. 1 Gross structure of the heart The human heart is a four-chambered, hollow muscle, roughly conical in shape, ϳ12 cm long by 9 cm wide. 7). The heart is rotated around its long axis so that the right atrium and right ventricle form the anterior surface.
