HEART The heart pumps blood at 72 beats per minute for an adult, 90 beats per minute for a child, and 110 beats per minute for an infant. The heart pumps approx.7500 litres every 24 hours. The heart pumps blood throughout the entire body and it takes only 10 seconds for a complete cycle.
LIVER The liver removes toxins from the bloodstream at a rate of at least 1.5 litres every minute.
KIDNEYS The kidneys are a pair of filters with remarkable ability to regulate the amount of blood salt and acid levels. The kidneys filter blood at the rate of 1.3 litres per minute with millions of tiny tubes called nephrons.
SPLEEN The spleen destroys old red blood cells and blood platelets and provide lymphocytes for new blood.
ARTERIES The blood leaves the heart via the pulmonary artery and enters the lungs where oxygen is added. The combined network of arteries and veins within the circulatory system measure approx.96,000 kilometres.
VEINS Veins carry oxygenated blood throughout the body.
