    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 System Vs Muscular System

    The Muscular system consists of 600 muscles. The function of the system is to give strength to the body 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

    1. Relation to the Alberta Program of Studies. Unit D: Human Systems in Biology 20 is one of the main sections that becomes relatable to the Program of Studies (POS) for the Heart Rate and Exercise LabQuest activity. General Outcome #2 focuses on how students will explain the role of the circulatory systems and defense systems in maintaining an internal equilibrium. This further goes into measuring the students level of understanding the concepts of heart rate and the factors that affect it (Alberta

    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

  • Exercise Affects Your Body: The Circulatory System

    Overview When you exercise, it stimulates the autonomic sympathetic nervous system. One of the most effected bodily systems is the cardio-respiratory system. Any change in the intensity of an activity changes the needs of you body. During exercise your heart and breathing rates increase noticeably. The change is due to the increased needs of oxygen and other nutrients to the muscles in the body. Circulatory System Exercise uses up a lot of energy, which the cells derive from oxidizing glucose

  • The Cardiovascular System: The Circulatory System

    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 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

    is pulled into the lungs. When the diaphragm relaxes, carbon dioxide is pumped out of the lungs. The cardiovascular system is part of the larger circulatory system, which circulates fluids throughout the body. The circulatory system includes both the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system. The cardiovascular system moves blood throughout the body, and the lymphatic system moves lymph, which is a clear fluid that’s similar to the plasma in blood. Blood contains nutrients from the foods you

  • The Human Circulatory System

    1. Circulatory System’s Structure and Function  The purpose of the circulatory system is to transport materials throughout the body. The human circulatory system has 3 major components that allow it to transport materials throughout the body, which are blood, blood vessels, and heart. The human circulatory system is a closed system that cycles blood through three different circuits: cardiac circulation, which means blood moves within the heart muscle. Pulmonary circulation, blood travels from the
