The heart can beat for half an hour, and the team is still working on the number of heart beats, so it could be similar to a human's heart. In addition, the heart has a left and right chamber. The chamber lets the blood travel through the ventricles. The team hopes they can improve the heart faster, so they can use it on humans.
