    Cardiac Muscle (myocardial) Cell Morphology

    Structure of the Heart: Atria, Ventricles, and Valves

    The Force of Cardiac Contraction Is Determined by Excitation-Contraction Coupling and the Initial Sarcomere Length of the Myocardial Cells

    Excitation-Contraction Coupling Is Mediated by Calcium

    Mechanics of Cardiac Muscle

    The Sequential Contraction and Relaxation of the Atria and Ventricles Constitute the Cardiac Cycle

    Ventricular Systole

    Echocardiography Reveals Movement of the Ventricular Walls and of the Valves

    The Two Major Heart Sounds Are Produced Mainly by Closure of the Cardiac Valves
