Transcript of The Circulatory System

Our Claim
It is more important to keep the circulatory system compared to any other human body system
The Circulatory System
What Does it Do?
The Circulatory System:
Transport gases, like oxygen from the lungs to cells around the body and carbon dioxide from the cells to the lungs.Transport nutrients like glucose.
Transport wastes from cells to organs that play the role of eliminating them.Contain cells that fight infections and defend against foreign bodies.
Maintain the pH levels and ionic fluids in the body.
Help maintain the body temperature- this is especially concentration of important in warm blooded animals like humans

How does it co-ordinate with other body systems to keep humans alive and healthy?
The Nervous System:
The circulatory system in connected to the Nervous System which is made up of the Brain, Spine and Nerves. The brain tells the heart to beat

The Digestive System:
The nutrients that come from the food you eat that is extracted by the digestive system are pumped into the blood which is then pumped around the body so that the body can function.

The Muscular System:
The Heart which is the most important part of the Circulatory System because it pumps the blood around the body is a muscle.

The Respiratory System:
The oxygen that is inhaled by the lungs oxygenates the blood and in turn the blood is sent around the body.

The Skeletal System:
Inside bones there is a substance called marrow, there are red and white blood cells in the marrow and these blood cells fight off diseases in the bones.

The Endocrine System:
The hormones that are created by the endocrine systems are transported around the body by the blood in the circulatory system.

The Immune System:
The white blood cells in the body make up the immune system, the white blood cells are part of the circulatory system and is also transported by the circulatory system to fight off infection in the body.
What would happen if we didn't have the circulatory system?
What would happen if we didn't have a circulatory system?
If we didn't have a circulatory system:
we would die
our cells would have no access to oxygen and would die
our brain wouldn't have access to blood and would die
our cells wouldn't be able to dispose waste
Argument

Argument
If we didn't have the Circulatory system all other body systems would fail, we wouldn't be able to make use of the nutrients and energy we get from food, we would be infected by serious illnesses and potentially bone diseases dues to a lack of white blood cells, our hormones would have no way of getting around our body and most importantly we would HAVE NO BLOOD meaning that it would be impossible to survive
