ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY Introduction My aims and objectives for this assignment are to understand what the difference between anatomy and physiology is and to also outline the components of the circulatory system and the heart. Anatomy is the study of the structural part of the body including the tissues, organs and systems and the connection of one part of the body to another. Physiology is the function of all the structural part of body The Circulatory System transports materials throughout
Hypothesis Due to the fact that the fetal pig and the human being’s anatomy are extremely similar, with the exception of a few minor parts, the fetal pig will be a precise tool in learning about the anatomy of a human. Introduction In courses such as biology, anatomy, and physiology, learning the anatomy of a human is imperative to learning about its functions and processes. Due to a lack of money, resources, and access, UConn cannot provide the use of a human cadaver for educational purposes.
Explain what is meant by anatomy and physiology Anatomy is the branch of biology which describes the structure of the body and the relationship of one part to another. Physiology is the study of how each part functions. Outline the components of the circulatory system, including blood The essential components of the circulatory system are, the heart, blood and blood vessels, it is means by which food and oxygen are carried
Cardiovascular System and Respi ratory System Ho Wai Chin (Jasmine) The Cardiovascular system The cardiovascular system is also known as the circulatory s ystem. It is made up of the heart, blood vessels and blood ce lls. is a network of blood vessels supplying the body with o xygen and nutrients, while removing carbon dioxide and wa ste. Our skin, bones, muscles, lungs, digestive tract, and nervous , endocrine, lymphatic, urinary, and reproductive systems us e the cardiovascular system as a transportation
One of the most important systems in the body, keeping it alive, is the cardiovascular system. As a part of the circulatory system, the cardiovascular system pumps blood throughout the body through a network of many arteries and veins, providing it with nutrients and oxygen. Also, the cardiovascular fights infections and disease in the body and creates blood cells. Never the less, blood acts as a filtration system for the body and removes waste, cell debris, or bacteria from the bloodstream.
The Urinary System and Pre-eclampsia: The Urinary system comprises of tubes, organs, nerves, and muscles that work together to develop, store, and transport urine. The system is basically made up of two ureters, two kidneys, the urethra, two sphincter muscles, and the bladder. This system in the human body is primarily concerned with the filtering of extra fluid and substances from the bloodstream in the form of urine. While urine is used to extract extra blood corpuscles, vitamins, or mineral
Introduction The circulatory system is made up of the heart and blood vessels and one of the major functions is to exchange gases between the blood and cells of the body and pump blood throughout the tissues of the body. Blood vessels are filled with blood being pumped from the heart and then is brought to the tissues throughout the body. The three kinds of blood vessels the make up the cardiovascular system are arteries, capillaries, and veins. Arteries carry blood away from the heart. Arteries
The circulatory system consists of blood contained in a network of vessels called the vascular system. The above figure is a schematic of the human circulatory system, the heart pumps oxygenated blood from the left side to different parts of the body and returns back to the right side of the heart making a closed loop, this loop is called the systemic circuit. The blood from the heart is pumped into large muscular arteries from which it moves into smaller arteries and finally into the areole from

Explain the function of the heart and the structure of arteries, veins and capillaries. Referring to Louise Tucker 5th edition, the heart is an organ that pumps blood through the body via the circulatory system, supplying nutrients and oxygen to the tissues and removing carbon dioxide and other waste products. According to Louise Tucker arteries are thick walled, hollow tubes with a fibrous outer covering, a middle layer of muscle and elastic tissue. The functions of arteries are: • Carry oxygenated
