In brief: Fluid

The pericardium is the space between the surface of the heart and the pericardial lining.
Inside this space is usually a small amount of fluid, the pericardial fluid. Since the heart is constantly moving with each beat, the sac protects the heart and the fluid functions like oil on a piston to allow smooth, effortless movement.
