    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
