The heart has been subject of much literature, ranging from rudimentary studies found in elementary biology texts, to obtuse technical theses of specific aspects of the many functions and disorders of this organ. Due to the magnitude of the subject, this article will be restricted to a very perfunctory treatment of the subject, which concerns the function of the heart and the various disorders affecting it.
