The Human Cardiovascular System
By: Jenny, Thomas, and Braden

What is it?
The Cardiovascular system is consisted of the heart, many blood vessels, and about five liters of blood.
The Heart
The heart's sole purpose is to pump blood all around the body. It is positioned in in the middle the two lungs, left of the center of the chest.
Blood Vessels
Blood is dispersed around the body through a complex system of blood vessels.
Blood Vessels
Included in these blood vessels are...
and veins.
Blood Vessels
It also helps to remove toxins and wastes that are harmful to the body.
The blood transports oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body.
Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. A major risk factor for this disease is elevated levels of cholesterol and LDL (or low-density lipoprotein) in the blood.
Interesting Facts!
Did you know that an adult man's heart weighs about ten ounces and a woman's heart weighs about eight ounces?

How does it work with other parts of the body?
When the Respiratory System and the Cardiovascular system interact, the blood is pumped through the heart and passes through the lungs.
How does it work with other parts of the Body?
In this system, blood cells are built in the bone marrow. The lymph nodes and spleen are included in this system.
Interesting Facts!
Every living thing has a cardiovascular system!
A stroke is a disturbance to the amount of blood you have. It occurs when blood blocks an artery or blood vessel. It blocks any part of the brain.

Interesting Facts!
Did you know that the cardiovascular system is always working like a pump?
Interesting Facts!
