3 The Role of The Circulatory System in The Human Body The function of the circulatory system is to transport nutrients and oxygen through out the body and to the cells. It carries waste produces through the blood stream and out the body. With out the circulatory system the body would not be able to fight the flue or any colds.

6 The Circulatory System is Connected to two other Body Systems Respiratory system is a system that is connected to the circulatory system. Digestive system is connected to the circulatory system. The respiratory system is connected by the lungs because they add oxygen to the blood. The digestive system is connected by the by removal of wastes.
7 Levels of Organization in Humans Cell Tissue Organ Organ system Organism One organ in the Circulatory system is the heart. The heart is made up of several types of tissues and one of them is muscle tissue (Cardiac Tissue). The cells that make up the muscle tissue are muscle cells.
9 Two Common Diseases That Directly Affects The Circulatory Systems The most common disease of the circulatory system is hardening of the arteries.

10 Another DiseaseAnother disease is high blood pressure which can also lead to a heart attack or a stroke. The way you can lower your blood pressure is by maintaining a healthy weight and be physically active.

Blood technicians draw blood form there patient's and they work at hospitals.
13 Did you know…….Did you know that people who drink alcohol a lot are damaging there circulatory system. Did you know the average persons heart beats 3 billion time in there life time.
