Question 58
What is the advantage of having the four-chambered heart?

Solution

In the four-chambered heart, the left half is completely separated from right half by septa. This prevents oxygenated and deoxygenated blood from mixing. This allows a highly efficient supply of oxygenated blood to all parts of the body. This is useful in animals that have high energy needs, such as birds and mammals.
