Transcript of Circulatory System

Circulatory System
Main Function
circulatory system
's main function consists of organs and tissues that transport essential materials to body cells and remove their waste.
Circulatory System-A system of organs and tissue that carries blood
Veins-one of the system of branching vessels or tubes conveying blood from various parts of the body to the heart
Fat-Having a lot of flabby tissue
Arteries-A blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood to different organs around the body
Organs-A group of tissues into a distinct structure that serve an organism a certain purpose to continue its survival

The circulatory system is located throughout the body, with
carrying blood to and from all
and body parts.
in your food.
Also known as "High Blood Pressure" this is when blood rushes to high into your artery walls are too high. Hypertension can be gradually developed when you are older. Another way to develop it is with an underlying condition. This is called "Secondary Hypertension" and can have more risk than the primary Hypertension. Hypertension could lead to strokes and and heart attacks.
Get regular physical activity
Heart Attacks
Avoid Tobacco
Anemia is a condition when the body doesn't have enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobins. Symptoms of Anemia are caused as the organs aren't getting enough blood resulting in symptoms like dizziness and pale skin. Anemia is caused by blood loss, destruction of red blood cells, and decrease of the cells protection.

Manage Stress
Heart attacks is a permanent damage to the heart. When a Heart attack happens, the coronary arteries (The thing that pumps blood in) are clogged up with fat matter, blocking the important flow of blood to the heart. Healing the heart after the attack happens just like a ordinary wound and takes about 8 weeks. However the skin tissue of the scar in the heart does not contract, making the heart weaker as its pumping is lessened. Symptoms of a Heart Attack could be tightening on the chest and pain.

Leukemia is disease in which extra white blood cells are produced. Leukemia occurs when some blood cells acquire DNA and mutate. The abnormality cause the cells to grow and divide more rapidly. These white blood cells crowd out the red blood cells and cause Leukemia. Symptoms of Leukemia differ as there is different types of the disease. Examples of leukemia symptoms are fever or chills, persistent fatigue, weight loss, excessive sweating, and frequent infections.
Arteriosclerosis is a condition the arteries harden, reducing amount of blood flow. Another type of Arteriosclerosis is Atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is when instead of hardening arteries, fat and other substances block the artery veins. They are both used interchangeably. The plaques/walls could blow up, triggering a blood clot. This is not only for the circulatory system, it can be for anything. If you have arteriosclerosis near the heart, you may feel symptoms similar to a heart attack such as a tightening in the chest. In the brain, you can feel numbness or slurred speech. Arteriosclerosis can even cause strokes or heart attacks.
Interactions with the other systems
The circulatory system carries oxygen and glucose to the bone cells so they can function properly while the skeletal system protects the heart, one of the vital organs of the system, and also produces red blood cells, important for carrying oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body.
The circulatory systems brings the necessary nutrients to the lungs for correct function.The respiratory system brings the oxygen that red blood cells carry throughout the body. The respiratory system also removes the water and carbon dioxide that the heart makes as a waste product.
The circulatory system carries oxygen and blood to the brain so that it can process information and control all the other systems. The spinal cord delivers messages from the brain to the rest of the body, and the medulla, inside the brain stem, controls the involuntary movements, specifically heartbeat
The circulatory system carries the necessary nutrients to the muscles so they can function correctly,as well as removes the waste that the muscular system creates. The heart is part of both systems, as it is a cardiac muscle, and smooth muscles are in veins and arteries
The circulatory system carries the necessary nutrients to digestive cells so they can function properly, and moves its waste so it can be dispelled. The digestive system provides the heart with nutrients so the heart can keep beating
The circulatory system carries the hormones of the endocrine system throughout the body to the different systems, and some of these hormones control the substances in blood.
Hemophilia is a rare disorder in which blood does not clot normally because of the lack of blood-clotting proteins. This would make you bleed a lot more than a normal person. Outside skin cuts are not much of a problem. However, deep bleeding inside your body is a bigger problem. It can cause internal organs to get damaged and could be life threatening. Hemophilia is a inherited disorder, meaning it can be passed from 1's offspring. There is no known cure but with proper care, people can still live a productive life. Hemophilia symptoms contain unexplained internal injuries, pain/swelling in joints, and repeating vomiting. Different types of Hemophilia are type A, the most common type with not enough clotting factor 8 which are essential blood protien, type B the 2nd most common and not enough clotting factor 9, and type C, the most mild effects with not enough clotting factor 11.
How it works
Blood flow has hormone glands that makes cell activity. Then the oxygen from the lungs combines with nutrients in the blood to provide energy for activities. Next, nutrients from the digestive system provide 'food' for the cells. The germ fighters from different parts of the body help to fight infection and disease that can be inside the blood flow. Wastes are carried to the liver and kidneys for removal from the body. Finally Carbon Dioxide, a waste gas, is carried away and delivered to the lungs, which remove it from the body.
