How Does The Respiratory System And The Cardiovascular System Work Together
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
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
Hows 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
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
Could you tell me what functions do the cardiovascular system and respiratory system have in common?
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
Respiratory: System oxygenates the blood and circulatory system delivers oxygenated blood to rest of body....Gross over simplification of course. ...Read more
Works in Harmony: Quite a question for 400 characters or less! the human body ( and all plants and animals in nature for that matter ) are complex systems that work in balance with their environment. There are structural components (musculo / skeletal) as well as energetic and regulatory components (gi/ cardiovascular / neuro) with multiple layers of feedback systems to allow the organism to thrive. ...Read more

How does the cardiovascular and respiratory system interrelate to provide for the body's energy needs?
It is perfused: By arteries with blood pumped by the heart. It also helps clear the toxins from the blood via the liver. The interactions are multiple. ...Read more
Too broad: This question is way too broad to try and answer, see if a more specific question comes to mind ? ...Read more
Hmmm...: The heart is the "cardio" in "cardiovascular system." it is one of the major components and is responsible for pumping blood to every organ. ...Read more
Mostly indirectly: Acute leukemia can cause anemia (bleeding or low production) which if severe leads to low blood pressure, fast heart rate, stressing the heart and may lead to congestive heart failure. Infection and sepsis can happen leading to shock and rapid death if untreated. The treatment of leukemia may involve drugs that affect the heart and multiple blood transfusions that can cause fluid overload. ...Read more
To adapt: to changing physiological demands. As an example heart rate goes up in response to fright or fight. ...Read more
The structure?: to effect the structure of, say, the heart requires an embryological defect - in other words you're often born with it. Over time theres a ton of things that can effect the heart structure - commonly things like chronic hypertension or valvular disorders can effect the structure of the heart walls and chambers. ...Read more
NS to CS: The heart and cardiovascular system receive parasympathetic and sympathetic innervation. The parasympathetics are craniosacral and the sympathetic nerves are in the thoracic area of the spinal column. ...Read more
It Seems To Help: The exact cause-and-effect mechanism between excellent oral health & improved cardiovascular health is not yet know, but there is definitely a strong correlation. It's probably related to lower overall inflammation within the body in people with good gum health. Some studies suggest more than double the risk of fatal heart attack and stroke in people with unhealthy gums. So, don't risk it. Floss! ...Read more
