How Does The Respiratory System Depend On The Circulatory System
Easy.: The brain (mission control of the nervous system) initiates the drive to breath based upon input from a variety of sensors. It transmits signals via the phrenic nerve to the diaphragm to initiate breathing. Cough receptors in the lung similarly control the cough reflex. Additionally the epiglottis is triggered to cover and protect the trachea to prevent aspiration. ...Read more
Both important: They are both very important to keeping you alive! oxygen is necessary for your brain cells to work properly. The nervous system (and particularly the brain stem) controls your breathing, the movement of your chest, the circulation of your heart, and oxygen going to your brain. They all have to work together. ...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
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Trouble for heart: Angina is an uncomfortable sensation from heart muscle suffering from lack of circulation - essentially acute oxygen deprivation. If this deprivation is not corrected, then a heart attack, with permanent heart muscle damage, can follow. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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
