  • Functions Of The Cardiovascular System And The Circulatory System

    The circulatory system is the system that transports nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormone. It also helps fight disease, maintain body temperature, pH, and homeostasis. There are two systems that make up the circulatory system which are the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system. The circulatory system moves blood through the body and is made up of the heart, blood vessels and the blood. The lymphatic system moves lymph to various parts of the body and is formed by the lymph, lymph vessels and the lymph nodes. One of the largest functions of the circulatory system is to transport oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. All cells of the body need oxygen to stay alive. The circulatory system is a closed system that does not come in contact…

  • The Cardiovascular System: The Circulatory System

    The Cardiovascular system also known as the Circulatory System is an organ system that transports oxygen, nutrients, hormones and cellular waste products and permits blood to circulate and form cells in the body to nourish it with every heartbeat throughout the body.However, the Cardiovascular system is composed of the following organs, heart and blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and capillaries. One of the major structures of this system is the heart which functions to propel blood…

  • The Grasshopper Circulatory System

    The constituent components of grasshopper circulatory system consist of blood vessels, heart, and aorta. The blood of grasshopper does not contain haemoglobin that is not red. The blood function is only to transport nutrients and metabolic waste from the organs to the malpighian tubules for excretion (Brian, 2014). Likewise, the transportation of carbon dioxide and oxygen is held by trachea system. The heart vessel serves as a pump. Ostia, the valves of the heart, will function as the entry of…

  • Essay On The Circulatory System

    The Circulatory System The circulatory system is the body 's transport system; it gets rid of waste and gets oxygen and nutrigens to the cells in the body. The circulatory system is made up of blood, blood vessles, the heart, and the lymphatic system. The heart pumps blood throughout the body through tubes called blood vessles. The circulatory system 's ammune system is the lymphatic system. Every one of these things work to maintain homeostasis throughout the body. There are three major…

  • Essay On Circulatory System

    The Circulatory System I decided to do my research paper on the The Circulatory System. I didn’t know that the Circulatory System had four main parts. The main parts that make up the circulatory system are the heart, pump, plumbing (for the blood vessels), circulating fluid (which we know as blood), and an auxiliary fluid system which is known as the lymphatic system. Our circulatory system works hard to transport oxygen and nutrients to your body cells and carry out carbon dioxide and waste…

  • Fish Circulatory System

    In phylum chordata, the circulatory system of each species are closed circulation. The closed circulation systems evolved in the phylum Echinodermata. However, with some enhancements, some species may have different numbers of chambers such as shark with 2 chambers, frog with 3 chambers and pig with 4 chambers. Some circulations have different shapes. In fish, they have most likely to have closed loop circulatory system. They have single circulation. In reptiles, they have double circulation.…

  • The Cardiovascular System And The Circulatory System

    The circulatory system which is also known as the cardiovascular system is tasked with circulating blood through the human body. The circulatory system is made up of the heart (cardiovascular), lungs (pulmonary), and arteries, veins, coronary and portal vessels (systemic). These three independent body systems work together to make the circulatory system. Together they are responsible for the flow of blood, nutrients, oxygen, other gases, and hormones to and from cells. The circulatory…

  • Circulatory System In Vertebrates

    invertebrates, must have necessary nutrients to maintain life. In invertebrates, either a transport system or diffusion provides nutrients to the body. For vertebrates, a closed transport is used to transport blood away from the heart. Both of these scenarios are key to an organism 's health. Some invertebrates do not require a circulatory system. While these organisms do not require a circulatory system, they require certain nutrients to be readily available. Because of this, another…

  • Importance Of Animal Circulatory System

    processes to survive. The most important in all of the body processes is the transport system, it is the one that is responsible for well being of all other body systems to function smoothly and properly by supplying nutrients for it to live.These organisms need to have the ability to transport particles such as molecules or ions, into the body of the organism and to move the said particles around inside the organism. They also need to be able to dispose of the unwanted substances from the body.…
