In answer to what question, and in what detail? You could write thousands of words about this topic, or a concise paragraph covering the main detail.

Not sure what level you need but I'm a medical student and we use a great website called "TeachMeAnatomy"

Here's the link for the heart page - https://teachmeanatomy.info/thorax/organs/heart/

It's not any particular question, I was going through my notes and I didnt have much info about structure of hear so I wanted to ask if someone else had it

Maybe if I was asked to answer question like describe structure of the heart (4 marks)
I put this: Heart muscle in the walls of the heart is called cardiac muscle.
Atrioventricular valves control the flow of blood between the chambers of the heart.
Chamber of heart that receives oxygenated blood from the lungs is named the left atrium.
Deoxygenated blood is transported back to the lungs in the pulmonary artery.
Backflow of blood into the heart is prevented by semi lunar valves.

But I dont think it really answers the question??

For a 4 marker maybe mention that there's 2 atria and 2 ventricles. Deoxygenated blood enters the right atrium through the vena cava. It then passes through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle where it is ejected through the pulmonary arteries to be oxygenated by the lungs. Oxygenated blood enters the left atrium through the pulmonary veins, it passes through the bicuspid (mitral) valve into the left ventricle where it is ejected through the aorta to the peripheral bodily tissues.

atria have thinner walls than ventricles
wall of left ventricle is thicker than that of the right ventricle
