    response of the human cardiovascular system to changes in posture. Expected decreases in BP, MAP, CO at 30 seconds post-tilt and immediate decreases in SV and TPR as seen in Figures 2, 4, 6 and Table 1 were observed. These decreases were due to increased pooling of blood in the lower limbs leading to lower venous return and subsequently decreasing flow out of the heart. Furthermore, there was a reflexive response by the autonomic nervous system in order to regain normal cardiovascular parameters mediated

    Tim Taylor, 2012) has argued that cardiovascular system referred to as the circulatory system, is composed of blood within the blood vessels and heart. The function of the heart is pumping the blood through the blood vessels of the body. There are three main functions of the cardiovascular system are: transportation where the heart pumps the blood vessels through the delivery way. It has been argued by (Medical terminology for cancer, 2014) that heart transports the respiratory gases, nutrients

    The cardiovascular system is an organ system that allows blood to circulate and is in charge of transporting oxygen, as well as carbon dioxide, hormones, nutrients, and cell waste items all over the body (Pironet, et al., 2016). This system helps to regulate body temperature, maintain homeostasis, and fight diseases. The cardiovascular system is made up of the heart, blood vessels, blood and plasma of the blood, and cells. The circulatory system is kept working by the heart. The heart is

    The Cardiovascular system, also known as the circulatory system, includes the heart and its vessels. Its purpose is to circulate blood throughout the body and its cells, delivering needed substances and removing waste. The different organs of the cardiovascular system include the heart and its blood vessels, which are capillaries, arteries and veins.

    components of the human body. The blood carries many functions such as to supply oxygen to the bodies tissues, remove metabolic waste products, regulate our core temperature as well as fighting infection and foreign bodies (Glover, 1997). The cardiovascular system is composed of the heart and its vessels. The heart is an involuntary muscle which receives blood to the atrias, which is then pumped via the ventricles. The vessels are composed of three main types. Arteries, veins and capillaries; all which

    The cardiovascular system and the circulatory systems work hand in hand. The main functions of the cardiovascular system are to transport nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to cells throughout the body, protect the body by white blood cells against foreign microbes and toxins, and platelets for blood clotting and regulate body temperature, pH fluid, and water content of cells. It’s a closed system, and the main organs associated with the cardiovascular system is the heart and the blood vessels. The

    Blood and the cardiovascular system are a closed system. Blood is needed to pump the heart and to flow through the rest of the body. Without blood, the heart would have no possible way to pump, and without the heart, blood would not have anything to propel it to flow through our bodies. Blood enters and exits the heart through circuits and vessels. The only fluid tissue throughout the human body is blood. Blood may look as if it is a thick liquid, this is because it is made up of not only tissue
