Great, this is a resource full information
i don't understand the circulatory system ...shouldn't the circulatory system comprimse only pulmonary and systemic cycle
This is great just enough information without it becoming lethargic and confusing.
I find this topic very helpful for understanding the process of how the circulatory system works
INTRODUCTION Any Circulatory System has three general components Vehicle Conduits Motive Forces
Easy to understand.
Interesting! Not bulky nor very little.
Very interesting module and ease of learning
Any circulatory system has three general components as follows:
• Motive forces
The vehicle is a fluid (flowing) medium. The materials being carried are dissolved or suspended in this fluid.
This is the blood, lymph, or cerebrospinal fluid.
Conduits are like pipes.
They contain the fluids in which materials are transported to and from the various parts of the body.
These are the blood vessels or lymph vessels.
Motive forces act upon the vehicle to make it flow through the conduits.
In the cardiovascular system these are provided by the heart.

Some examples of circulatory systems of the human body include:
• the cardiovascular system
• the lymphatic system
• the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) system
The lesser systems include:
• the aqueous humor of the bulbus oculi (eyeball)
• the endolymph and perilymph, which are fluids of the inner ear
This course focuses on the cardiovascular system.
