    Heart is located in the middle of the chest, but still it against the left wall, so we can hear the rhythm of heart best from the left side of chest.

    Where is the heart located? If you answered left chest, you're wrong! The heart is situated almost dead centre in the middle of the chest. However, the apex or tip of the heart is shifted towards the left chest wall and hits against the ribs during contraction. Consequently, the rhythm is best detected on the left side, just below the pectoralis.
