Purchase The Cardiovascular System - 2nd Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBN , 23 rows The cardiovascular system includes the heart located centrally in the thorax and the Cited by: 8. The circulatory system is very busy as it "delivers food, chemicals, and fluids to cells throughout your body" while at the same time ridding the body of wastes and carrying "cells that fight disease." This is a "True Book." One sentence in the front of the book is true and the other false, but you'll have to read the book to find out the answer/5(6). As you walk, eat, and sleep, your heart continually pumps trillions of blood cells through thousands of miles of blood vessels inside your body. You may not be able to see your own heart, but all you have to do is look inside this book to see how this amazing organ works. Acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon brings you this /5(25).
This textbook, authored by Dr. Klabunde, stresses the fundamental concepts of cardiovascular physiology. It was written to enable students to learn how the cardiovascular system functions in order to build a foundation for understanding cardiovascular disease, its diagnosis and treatment. The primary function of the cardiovascular system is mass transport, that is, the transport of oxygen, carbon dioxide, nutrients, waste products, hormones, etc., within the body. This system consists primarily of the heart, which serves as the pump, the blood, which serves as the conducting medium, and the vasculature, which serves as the conduit through which the blood by: 8. 1.

The cardiovascular system, also called the circulatory system, is the organ system that transports materials to and from all the cells of the body. The materials carried by the cardiovascular system include oxygen from the lungs, nutrients from the digestive system, hormones from glands of the endocrine system, and waste materials from cells. Introduction to the Cardiovascular System. The cardiovascular system is sometimes called the blood-vascular, or simply the circulatory, consists of the heart, which is a muscular pumping device, and a closed system of vessels called arteries, veins, and the name implies, blood contained in the circulatory system is pumped by the heart around a closed circle or circuit. he cardiovascular system is sometimes called, simply, the circulatory system. It consists of the heart, which is a muscular pumping device, and a closed system of vessels called arteries, veins, and capillaries. As the name im-plies, blood contained in the circulatory system is pumped by the heart around a closed circle or circuit of vessels as it. The cardiovascular system consists of the heart and blood vessels. There is a wide array of problems that may arise within the cardiovascular system, for example, endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, abnormalities in the conduction system, among others, cardiovascular disease (CVD) or heart disease refer to the following 4 entities that are the focus of this article.
