Transcript of Circulatory System
The Circulatory system
The circulatory system is a vast network of organs and vessels that is responsible for the flow of blood, nutrients, oxygen and other gases, and hormones to and from cells. Without the circulatory system, the body would not be able to fight disease or maintain a stable internal environment temperature and pH — known as homeostasis.
Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer in America, with more than 800,000 deaths in 2005.
Coronary artery disease: Stable plaques in the heart's arteries cause angina(chest pain on exertion). Sudden plaque rupture and clotting causes heart muscle to die. This is a heart attack, or myocardial infarction.
Cerebrovascular disease: Ruptured plaques in the brain's arteries causes strokes, with the potential for permanent brain damage. Temporary blockages in an artery can also cause transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), which are warningsigns of stroke; however, there is no brain injury.
Peripheral artery disease: Narrowing in the arteries of the legs caused by plaque. Peripheral artery disease causes poor circulation. This causes pain onwalking and poor wound healing. Severe disease may lead to amputations.
the diseases that we surveyed for the circulatory system are:
peripheral artery diseases
blood clotting disorders
blood clots in the veins
peripheral venous diseases and also
