The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions

1. The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions

In this lesson, you will take a ride on the transportation system of the body called the circulatory system and its two parts: the pulmonary circuit and the systemic circuit. Take a look inside and see how every inch of your body receives the oxygen and nutrients it needs.

Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

2. Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

In this lesson, you will take a look inside the heart and identify the chambers and one-way valves that make up this vital organ. You will also follow along as we trace the flow of blood through the heart chambers.

Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

3. Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

Your heart muscle receives a rich blood supply from the coronary arteries. If the coronary arteries become blocked, it can result in coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack or congestive heart failure. Learn how these conditions get started.

Functions of the Lymphatic System

4. Functions of the Lymphatic System

In this lesson, you will learn about the lymphatic system and the vital role it plays in keeping the cardiovascular system working. You'll discover how the lymphatic system (with its lymphatic vessels and capillaries) quietly works in the background to return leaked fluids back to the blood.

Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

5. Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

Why don't mature red blood cells have nuclei or mitochondria, and how do these guys squeeze through capillaries? While learning about the brief but glorious lives of red blood cells, you'll also see which characteristics help them transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to other cells.

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

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

You are either blood type A, B, AB or O. But, did you know that your blood type is determined by microscopic antigens found on your red blood cells? In this lesson, you will learn about the different blood groups and why they do not mix.

What is a Lymph? - Definition & Anatomy

7. What is a Lymph? - Definition & Anatomy

In this lesson, you will learn about lymph, a fluid that forms in your body's tissues. You will explore how lymph is produced, how it moves through your body, and why it is important to your overall health. A post-lesson quiz will test your knowledge.
