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.

Hows does the cardiovascular system and the respiratory system work together to maintain homeostasis?

Good question. Both these systems, like the rest of your body, are under the control of the lower part of the brain. Whether we like it or not, this is a computer. Control is exercised through the autonomic (automatic) nervous and endocrine systems. The organs send signals into the brain and the brain signals the organs. It is a two way street. The upper brain gives advice and consent to the lower brain, representing what we call self control. 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...
