    Yes, it is on the specification. You only need to know what VALVES open and close e.g. Semi-Lunar and Atria-Ventricular valves during each stage of the cardiac cycle, also which chamber contracts etc.

    HOWEVER,

    You do not need to know about the electrical impulses that control these contractions e.g. Sinoatrial and Sinoventricular nodes. That is from the old specification, not the new specification.
