Blood circulation is also known as human circulatory system. The key components of a human circulatory system is the heart, the blood and the blood vessels.
Understanding What Is Circulatory System
It is an organ system that is collectively made up of the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems. The cardiovascular system is formed by the heart, blood and blood vessels whereas the lymphatic system is formed by the lymph, lymph nodes, and lymph vessels. Blood and lymph fluids move through the circulatory system. The human digestive system works with the circulatory system to provide nutrients to its needs to keep the heart pumping.
Understanding What Is Blood Circulation
Human blood circulation comprises mainly 2 forms of circulations, the pulmonary and systemic circulations. During pulmonary circulation, the human blood is oxygenated after a loop through the lung. As for systemic circulation, the blood is circulated (loop) through the rest of the body to provide oxygenated blood.
Blood circulation helps to move nutrients, gases or even waste, to and from cells. This would then help in fighting diseases and stabilizing blood temperature and pH to maintain homeostasis.
