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

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
