The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions

1. The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions

The human circulatory system has many parts that enable blood to move throughout the body. Learn about the circulatory system, how provides oxygen to cells, and explore the many other parts and functions, including the pulmonary and systemic circuits.

Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

2. Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

The heart is a complex organ that regulates a body's blood flow. Explore the anatomy of the heart and learn about its different parts, including the four chambers and heart valves, the heartbeat, as well as the process and importance of blood flow.

Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

3. Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

There are several types of heart conditions and disease. Learn about coronary arteries and the causes and symptoms of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack, and congestive heart failure.

Functions of the Lymphatic System

4. Functions of the Lymphatic System

A healthy lymphatic system is necessary for a properly functioning cardiovascular system. Learn about the lymphatic system (lymphatic capillaries, lymph nodes, lymph, lymphatic vessels, & lymphatic drainage), the functions of each structure within the lymphatic system, and how edema occurs if the lymphatic system fails to return leaked fluids to the blood.

Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

5. Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

Red blood cells are an important part of the circulatory system with only one job: to transport carbon dioxide and oxygen between the body's lungs and all other cells. Learn about this process and understand red blood cells, including how they are produced and how they function.

Blood Types: ABO System, Red Blood Cell Antigens & Blood Groups

6. Blood Types: ABO System, Red Blood Cell Antigens & Blood Groups

Blood types are determined by antigens found in red blood cells. Learn about the blood types, red blood cell antigens, agglutination, the ABO system, the blood groups, and the definitions of universal donor and universal recipient blood types.
