CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM Health II What is the purpose of the cardiovascular system? Together the heart, blood vessels, and blood work to deliver materials, fight disease, and remove waste. The cardiovascular system is essential for life. This system is AKA the circulatory system.

System Overview • What are the three main components (parts) to the cardiovascular system? • What are the three main functions of the cardiovascular system? • Why is blood circulation important? Additional Info • What is cardiac muscle? Where can it be found? • Explain the natural pacemaker. RESPIRATORY SYSTEM Health II What is the purpose of the Respiratory system? The respiratory system exchange gases between the body and the environment. The system removes carbon dioxide from the body and provides it with oxygen. Inhaling and exhaling causes the lungs to expand and deflate. This process is known as respiration. The continual exchange of gasses is essential for life. Label the structures that aid in the respiration process using the terms listed below. Nasal Cavity/Nose 1 Mouth Diaphragm 3 2 4 Bronchus Lungs Epiglottis (seal)/Larynx (voice box) Pharynx (throat) 7 6 Trachea (windpipe) 8 5 Gas Exchange Blood Vessels (arteries & veins from CV System) Capillaries (smallest blood vessel) Alveoli (where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged between cardio and respiratory systems) Bronchial Tubes (smaller branch of bronchus) Cardio-respiratory System Why is it important that the cardiovascular system and respiratory system work together?
