  • The Circulatory System

    1428 Words  | 6 Pages

    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

  • Circulatory Shock

    1012 Words  | 5 Pages

    Circulatory shock is a syndrome of widespread cellular hypoxia, triggered by a systemic alteration of perfusion and delivery and/or utilization of tissue oxygen, eventually causing end-organ dysfunction and death [53]. It can be subdivided into 4 distinct categories according to its primary pathophysiological mechanism, namely cardiogenic, hypovolemic, obstructive and distributive [54]. In the first 3 types, perfusion has changed as a consequence of the cardiac output decrease, whereas distributive

  • Circulatory System

    Circulatory system comprises of two main systems. One is cardio vascular system and the other is lymphatic system. The lymphatic system comprises of a fluid known as lymph that circulates within lymphatic nodes, vessels, organs and tissues. Cardiovascular system is also known as vascular system or circulatory system. It functions to circulate blood through out the body and to supply nutrients to maintain homeostasis. The circulated blood transport nutrients and electrolytes for example oxygen, carbon

  • The Cardiovascular System: The Circulatory System

    506 Words  | 3 Pages

    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

    in experiments to gain more information of the human circulatory and nervous system. As daphnia are located in fresh water, there is a real risk of fertiliser leaking from households into creeks and rivers. This task will prove the danger of this for wildlife and the effect it has

  • Red Blood Circulatory System Lab

    572 Words  | 3 Pages

    The main system that was studied in the past labs was the circulatory system. The circulatory system consists of the heart, the blood and all its components, arteries, and veins. The blood is composed of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets which are all important. Red blood cells are used to transport respiratory gases to the body, white blood cells are the body’s defense mechanism, and platelets are what helps blood clot when there is an opening in the surface of the skin or in the

    conducts it towards the lungs. It would then travel to the alveoli, which are tiny sacs within our lungs, and from there gas exchange would happen, when carbon dioxide from your blood moves out, and oxygen will go into your blood. The blood in the circulatory system will then travel back to your heart, and it will pump blood to the rest of your body. To put it in another way, when we breathe in, oxygen would enter our alveoli, which is located in

    many ways. In our project microbe an us blood is the number one survival in the circulatory system,. The circulatory system is composed of the heart and blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and capillaries. Our bodies actually have two circulatory systems.In our heart we have a pulmonary circulation is a short loop that goes from the heart to the loops and goes back again. The muscular system connects to the circulatory system. The muscular system is an organ muscular system consisting of skeletal

    so it can perform a movement. The system consists of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. The cardiovascular system and the muscular system both help each other to perform their actions. Due to the fact that muscles require a lot of oxygen the circulatory system takes in the air which is combined with the blood flow and sent to the muscles. When the body is at rest the blood flow carries nutrients to the muscles so they can be repaired. Everyday, muscles produce a lot of waste products so when the

  • Chapter Twenty: One Of The Circulatory System

    345 Words  | 2 Pages

    Chapter twenty is the last one of the circulatory system and it discussed about the blood vessels and circulation. Blood vessels is the distribution network or the network of tubes. There are three main blood vessels in the heart there are artery, veins and lymphatic. The arteries are all the blood vessels that take blood out from the heart. It tends to be thick, strong and tough because all the blood is rushing through the arteries. The arterioles are like the mini arteries that branch off of the
