How does the circulatory system work?

How does the circulatory system work?

Blood: All the cells that compose your body require a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients and means of removing waste. These functions are performed by blood. Your heart pumps oxygen rich blood to all areas and receive oxygen poor blood in return - simulataneously, your heart separately pumps this oxygen poor blood to your lungs and receives it to pump everywhere else. Blood goes round and round.

What are good practices for the circulatory system?

Cardiology: Good question, but probably the wrong forum. To answer this question would take up a full text book. I am happy to hear that your are curious and maybe you can get into a class to learn about physiology and biology and pathology. Maybe you can be on your way to medical school. Keep learning.

Which ailments of the circulatory system are most common?

Which ailments of the circulatory system are most common?

Here is the list: High blood pressure (hypertension) atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). This can lead to heart attack (coronary artery occlusion), stroke or peripheral vascular disease (may cause gangrene from poor circulation in the legs). Vascular occlusions can also occur due to blood clots inside the diseased arteries and or inside the veins (venous thrombosis which can lead to pulmonary embolism (lungs).

What causes organ malfunctions in the circulatory system?

What causes organ malfunctions in the circulatory system?

Many things: Generally speaking, many things. If the organ was previously functioning normally, usually malfunction is caused by some sort of injury on the gross level (like mechanical trauma) or on the cellular or sub-cellular level (i.e. some sort of disease process). Causes can also generally be grouped into "acquired" or "congenital" (meaning you were born with it). Hope this helps
