How are the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system dependent on each other?

How are the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system dependent on each other?

Intricate connection: The respiratory system provides oxygen that nourishes the entire body, including the heart and vascular system. Without oxygen, we die. Without the left heart, oxygenated blood cannot be pumped through the body. De-oxygenated blood also has to get back to the lungs to be re-oxygenated. Receiving this blood from the vena cava, the right heart pumps it back through the lungs. ...Read more

Vascular System (Definition)

The vascular system performs circulation of blood throughout the body. It consists of the arteries and veins that run everywhere including the head, neck, chest, abdomen and all 4 extremities. The heart might also be included as it is the pump that circulates the blood thru the vascular system. The lymphatics of the body are also considered a third part ...Read more

How's does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

How's does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

Beautifully: Your body uses oxygen for fuel and produces carbon dioxide as waste. These gases circulate in the blood, which is pumped by the heart to the lungs (and the rest of the body). In the lungs, oxygen you breathe in enters the blood, while carbon dioxide leaves the blood and enters the air you breathe out. ...Read more

How does the respiratory system affect the cardiovascular system?

How does the respiratory system affect the cardiovascular system?

Directly: If you don't cary out gas exchange (o2--co2)in the lungs, then your blood ph will fall (acidosis), and the heart will experience arrhythmias, ultimately asystole and death. ...Read more

What functions do the cardiovascular system and respiratory system share?

What functions do the cardiovascular system and respiratory system share?

Gas exchange: The heart and lungs work together is a carefully coordinated team to pick up oxygen from the lungs, deliver it to the tissues, and then take the waste products from those tissues and return it to the lungs where they are expelled as carbon dioxide. ...Read more

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

How does the respiratory system work together with the cardiovascular system?

O2 Delivery: The lungs exchange co2 from metabolism for o2. The heart delivers a carefully calibrated amount of blood to the body to match o2 delivered to o2 needed. That's why heart rate goes up w/ exercise. The lungs gets their blood from the right ventricle, and this blood comes back to the left atrium where it is then ejected to the body by the left ventricle. ...Read more

How does the repiratory system and the cardiovascular system complement each other?

Quite efficiently: To simplify a very complex symbiotic relationship, the respiratory system brings oxygen to the alveolar surfaces of the lung where it passes into the red blood cells of the circulatory system to be taken to the rest of the body. Simultaneously red cells give up carbon dioxide brought to the lungs that is exhaled by the respiratory system. This exchange continues 24/7. Wish my car worked as well! ...Read more

What are killer diseases of the cardiovascular system?

atherosclerosis: The most certain answer to your question is atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) which can result in heart attacks and congestive heart failure, both of which could result in death.

How does your cardiovascular system respond to exercise?

How does your cardiovascular system respond to exercise?

Exercise : The first response to exercise is to increase heart rate and then blood pressure. This is the followed by several physiologic responses such as shunting blood to the muscles and the use of both Amino Acids from proteins and fats for production of energy. There are other long term changes that take place as well. ...Read more

How does the cardiovascular system regulate homeostasis?

That's complicated: The cardiovascular system regulates flow of blood to various organs of the body by changing cardiac output and controlling the tone of the blood vessels (arteries, arterioles and capillaries) that provide blood to these various organs. This is done by various hormones. There are several areas in the body that sense blood flow, oxygen concentration and blood pressure to change blood flow ...Read more
