Cardiac muscles are involuntary muscles which show characteristics of both smooth and striated muscles. These muscles occur in the walls of the heart. 

Functions of Cardiac Muscles 

Cardiac muscles contract and relax rapidly, rhythmically and tirelessly throughout life. They contract endlessly from early embryonic stage until death. 

The contraction and relaxation of heart muscles help to pump and distribute blood to various parts of body.
