The heart muscle (myocardium) that forms the walls of the chambers, is stimulated to contract rhythmically by a special patch of tissue called the sino-atrial (SA) node or 'pacemaker'. Although the SA node gives the heart the ability to contract by itself, its rate of contraction is determined by nerve impulses from centres in the brain. The heart muscle receives a supply of fully oxygenated blood from branches of the aorta known as the coronary arteries. If coronary arteries become blocked, the muscle dies triggering a heart attack.
