Our cells need energy and by the respiratory and circulatory systems working together they provide the cells with oxygen that is fundamental for cellular respiration. For cellular respiration to ensue firstly the exchange of gases between the blood and tissue cells need to occur and this is known as the internal respiration following this, the body utilises the oxygen and this is known as cellular respiration.

Without the respiratory and circulatory systems working together all of the above would not be able to occur if one system wasn't
