The circulatory system overview

The Circulatory System Overview

  • Moves nutrients, gases, hormones, blood cells throughout the body

  • 60,000 miles of blood vessels supply the various tissues of our bodies

  • The heart is the driving force of the circulatory system, beating 100,000 times each day

  • The lungs are responsible for the exchange of O2 and CO2



  • Red blood cells, erythrocytes, transport gases like O2 and CO2

  • Platelets help clot wounds

  • White blood cells, leukocytes, are part of the immune system

  • Fun fact about blood: In the early 19th century, some advertisements claimed that riding the carousel was good for the circulation of blood!!!

The heart

The Heart

  • Heart pumps oxygenated blood to the body and deoxygenated blood to the lungs

  • 4 total chambers, 4 valves, 2 electrical nodes

  • “Lub-dub” ?

Heart Rate Continued...

  • Resting heart rate is the number of beats per minute when you are at complete rest

  • Maximum heart rate is the highest number of beats the heart can contract in 1 minute
