Heart Disease  – Science Rap Academy


I’m gonna tell you about the heart’s… the heart’s structure and function Your cardio system is a series of tubes Blood circulates in a figure 8 loop Valves, veins, and arteries, and one big pump Right ventricle sends blood to the pulmonary trunk It’s deoxygenated so it’s headed to the lungs Gets oxygen then it’s to the left like Beyonce Then oxygen rich blood feeds every body part Trade O2 for CO2 then come back to the heart Travels through superior and inferior vena cava Then back to the right atrium start it over But don’t forget your heart is made of cells it needs oxygen and blood just as well What happens if it doesn’t get that blood? What happens if it doesn’t get that blood? I’ve got a problem it’s called coronary heart disease I can’t pump the blood through my heart it’s too hard for me Don’t you see that I get blood clots in my arteries? I really need some help so I can start a beat Let me tell you that my vessels can get filled with plaque But sometimes it gets too big and it will start to crack And that’s what causes all of my heart attacks My sight goes black and I need lots of help real fast I’m gonna tell you… about the heart’s… The heart’s structure and function You’ve got coronary heart disease It blocks your blood so you can’t breathe Your beats are inconsistent You could pass out in an instant Plaque builds up in small canals And cracks and builds up all your blood No oxygen can reach your heart Soon your beat is gonna halt But you know it’s not your fault Now you need a restart An EKG can test your heart And see where damage has occured You’re almost done with being cured We’ll give you drug therapy Preventing all those blood clots and breaking up your platelets Aspirin, Brilinta Effient and plavix Those are your remedies We solved my problem of coronary heart disease I can pump the blood through my heart so easily Don’t you see that I had blood clots in my arteries I really needed help so I could start a beat Let me tell you that my vessels got filled with plaque But sometimes it got too big and it would start to crack And that’s what caused all of my heart attacks Now I’m healthy even after all of those setbacks Thanks for watching the Science Rap Academy!
