Explain why is the heart considered to be a double pump

Nov 24th, 2014

The heart is considered to be a double pump because it has two separate chambers - one that is specific for pumping oxygenated blood and one that is specific for pumping deoxygenated blood.  Each half of the heart is made up of a ventricle and an atrium.  The right atrium and right ventricle are the pump specific for oxygenated blood; the left atrium and left ventricle are specific for deoxygenated blood.
