The Circulatory system is responsible for transporting oxygen, nutrients, hormones, and cellular waste products. The Circulatory system is run by the heart which is a muscular organ responsible for transporting blood through the body.
The circulatory system interacts with the respiratory system. The respiratory system is responsible for carrying oxygen to parts of the body through your blood which is controlled by the circulatory system.
Major Organs in the Circulatory System
The heart and blood are major organs in this system. Blood delivers nutrients to cells and carries out carbon dioxide and waste. The deoxygenated blood is carried back to the the heart. From there, it is pumped to the lungs to receive oxygen, and is pumped back to the rest of the body. Blood vessels push blood through the body. Arteries deliver nutrients to cells and veins carry waste out and send the blood back to the heart
