Heart within Chest
The heart is located slightly to the left of the center of the chest, between the two lungs. This image shows the location of the heart within a person's ribcage and the network of arteries nearby in the thorax and neck. The subclavian arteries can be seen bringing blood from the heart to the arms. The common carotid arteries run from the heart up into the neck where they will branch to supply the head and neck with blood.
