All About the Heart
Your heart is really a muscle. It’s located a little to the left of the middle of your chest, and it’s about the size of your fist.

Chucky Gets Lucky
Chucky was on an express train to the graveyard — unless his doctors and that generous, anonymous stranger could derail it. Follow along on this story about a human heart transplant. From the Why Files.

Electric Heart

Virtual Cardiology Lab
The focus of this lab is on heritable diseases of the heart. You are cast here as a virtual intern to accompany a doctor examining three different patients. Each patient is examined, using more than one diagnostic tool, and at each stage, the doctor will invite you to examine the patient yourself and ask for your opinion. Free CD to order. Ask your parent or teacher.
