- collects blood draining from the myocardium
- supplies the left atrium and the posterior walls of the left ventricle.
- often infiltrated with fat (adipose), especially in older people. (visceral layer of the serous pericardium)

- pumps blood into the pulmonary truck, which routes the blood to the lungs where gas exchange occurs.
5 True/False questions
Left ventricle →
1 of 4 chambers; rough, muscular walls; muscle wall thicker than either atrium and thinner than left ventricle; Responsible for pumping oxygen poor blood to lungs.
Where is the endocardium found and what kind of tissue is it? → The endocardium underlies the much more voluminous myocardium, the muscular tissue responsible for the contraction of the heart.
Cardiac muscle is a type of involuntary striated muscle found in the walls and histologic foundation of the heart, specifically the myocardium.
cardi = → heart
ventr = → around
serous pericardium → tough, dense connective tissue layer protects the heart, anchors it to surrounding structures, and prevents overfilling of the heart with blood.
