Myocardium

The myocardium is the thick, central layer of the heart and is poised of cardiac muscle. Cardiac muscle is very unique because it possesses the characteristics of skeletal muscle and smooth muscle in which skeletal muscle controls the voluntary movement of the body and smooth muscle responsible for the movement of all other body organs. The myocardium is composed of thousands of muscle fibers that are striated and are arranged at irregular intervals throughout the muscle. They connect to each other at points called intercalated discs. These are tiny membranes that divide the ends of the muscle cells, these fibers actually use calcium to cause an electrical conduction to occur. The contraction (heart beat) of the myocardium is responsible for pumping blood with oxygen to the body and body requires oxygen for proper function. Like all body tissues, the myocardium itself requires a blood supply in order to function.
