Circulatory System

The Cardiovascular System

The cardiovascular system, also known as the circulatory system, is comprised of an arterial component that delivers nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to the tissues by way of arteries and capillaries. 

Pulmonary Circulation

The cardiovascular system, also known as the circulatory system, is comprised of an arterial component that delivers nutrient and oxygen-rich blood to the tissues by way of arteries and capillaries. Pulmonary circulation deals with the movement of blood between the heart and the lungs. Deoxygenated blood is transported from the heart, through the pulmonary artery, and then to the lungs where it is re-oxygenated. This re-oxygenated blood flows back to the heart and is pushed out to the rest of the body.
