The animation was fantastic, and clearly showed how blood flowed through the heart. It was a bit sparse on information, but still very well done. It has a nice feature where it tracks how much blood your heart is pumping, as you go through the material.

Wonderful animation of the basic anatomy of the heart. Would be useful for beginnning nursing students or as a quick review.

The site gives a simple overview of the bloodflow through the heart and great facts about the heart that are easy to remember as they give good tangible examples, such as the heart pumping as hard as one would squeeze a tennis ball. It'd be nice if there were more animations of the heart. The content and the links provided would be good for teaching-learning with patients.
