Health & Medicine on Khan Academy: No organ quite symbolizes love like the heart. One reason may be that your heart helps you live, by moving ~5 liters (1.3 gallons) of blood through almost 100,000 kilometers (62,000 miles) of blood vessels every single minute! It has to do this all day, everyday, without ever taking a vacation! Now that is true love. Learn about how the heart works, how blood flows through the heart, where the blood goes after it leaves the heart, and what your heart is doing when it makes the sound “Lub Dub.”

    Other guy is still wrong. Underutilization of services is still a much bigger problem than over utilization.

    The group that is the "Patients" actually loses more money and value in terms of dying population (that should have gone to the hospital) than the insurance company would by under-limiting us of health care resources.

    Awesome video

  35. Charlie Dallachie on November 12, 2021 at 12:35 pm

    Today in 2019 it seems broken still. Decent Insurance shouldn’t cost as much as rent and an ICU stay shouldn’t bankrupt someone. Even if you pay monthly premiums, you’re still at the mercy of insurance companies since they may deny to cover a critical surgery. What’s the point of paying thousands a year to be denied by it. Employers are slowly shifting costs to employees because of the rising costs.its nothing to sweat about if you’re wealthy but if you’re the rest of the 90% it’s expensive

  36. Adi kravets on November 12, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    7:48 That not true, Economist just think about money. Research shows that people that people would not go around using insurance. (some might) But not all. That why economist are usually not the greatest people when it comes to health, but only $$

  37. Chloe Wen on November 12, 2021 at 12:36 pm

  40. TwoWingsStudio on November 12, 2021 at 12:40 pm

    The USA does not have a health care system. It has a health insurance industry. To say that the health insurance industry is a health care system is akin to saying that your auto insurance is your car care system.

  41. Mheds flores on November 12, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    Herbal medicine is 100% guarantee of Herpes virus cure, the reason why most patient are finding it difficult to cure Herpes virus is because they believe on medical report, drugs and medical treatment which is not helpful to cure Herpes virus. Natural Roots & herbs are the best remedies which can easily eradicate Herpes virus so herbal medicine is the best remedies for Herpes virus. I was once a patient of Herpes virus now I give thanks to spiritual Dr.okougo. Contact Dr.okougo Herbalhome on YouTube channel is there for you..

    The narration is, "I mean", "like totally", "makes sense" horrible. The chit chat talk show style doesn’t work well.

  44. David A on November 12, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    There is a falsehood that there is any realistic competition between insurance companies.
    Health is not like buying a car or a TV or a tooth brush. When your sick and you need help your not going to want to shop around. Nor I would argue should anyone have to. I believe-
    The most efficient system will be the simplest system. Less overhead gives you more resources for actual healthcare.
    Single payer is the least overhead system. This system would fund a healthcare management government body.
    A healthcare management body, funded by the single payer body and staffed by people specifically educated on healthcare and who understand best management practices will be best equipped to make choices about how and where to put resources.
    The healthcare management body, funded by the single payer system then would work with the independent doctors, nurse practitioners and hospitals who would compete to provide services at lowest costs.

    HERBAL CURE IS THE BEST REMEDY FOR (HSV1&2)  I was a victim of herpes virus and i got cured by  Dr Osas  Herbal treatment is a 100% guarantee for HSV cure, the reason why most people are finding it difficult to cure HSV 1&2 is because they believe in medical reports, drugs and medical treatments which are not helpful to cure HSV and haven’t proved any sign of helping.

I never believed it until I was helped and cured of my 2 years genital herpes with natural herbal medicines from Dr Osas Where other medical prescribed drugs and treatments failed, Dr Osas natural herbs helped save me from Genital herpes permanently and I am so grateful for this.
