Your heart beats more than 100,000 times a day. In just a minute, it pumps over five liters of blood throughout your body. But unlike skin and bones, the heart has a limited ability to repair itself. So if this organ is severely damaged, there’s often only one medical solution: replacing it.
In this animated lesson created for TED-Ed, Educator Roni Shanoada explores how this complex and intricate procedure works.
Our animation studio has been working with TED for many years and together we have created a large number of educational videos on a variety of subjects that range from science and art, to history and social issues.
