    In summary, the components of the circulatory system are vehicle, conduits, and motive forces. The blood flows through Arteries, veins, and coronary arteries through the body, to and from the heart and body tissues.

    Generally the cardiovascular system consists of blood (the vehicle) the arteries and the veins( the conduits) and the heart ( the motor force). Therefore the blood is forced through the arteries and veins by the beating heart to the body tissues.

    Humans and all large multicellular organisms need circulatory systems so that substances can be circulated and collected throughout the body, these substances are ,oxygen nutrients waste products and hormones. The human body has three circulatory systems,1. the cardiovascular system 2. The lymphatic system 3. The cerebrospinal fluid system. All circulatory systems include the motive force, conduits and a vehicle.

    To summarise this module I must brake it up into several parts, the heart which is the 'motive force' the conduits which are the blood vessels etc and the vehicle which is the blood or other fluids. With this structure in place nutrients can be transported throughout the body ensuring cells receive sufficient energy for growth and repair etc , and waste products are able to be removed from the body.

    Will this module allow me to progress to a certificate or diploma, as I would like to use it as part of my continuous personal development assessment programme.
