UNIT 1 : CARDIOVASCULAR & CIRCULATORYSYSTEM
Q1 Define the term ‘Homeostasis’ & describe the processes related to maintaining this optimal stage?
Answer1: Homeostasis is the basic principal of biological order in which a constant condition of...
linking in with diabetes. The Circulatory/cardio system is involved with diabetes but not majorly like the other two systems. (Human anatomy, 2010)The Circulatory/cardio systemfunction is to bring the food inside the body so linking to diabetes this would be bringing glucose into the body. (Human...
total peripheral resistance. The most important arterial baroreceptors are located in the left and right carotid sinuses and in the aortic arch (Marieb, Hoehn 2013).
The kidneys and adrenal cortex also play an important role in maintainingblood pressure. Renin-angiotensin system (RAS) is a long-term...
perform related functions and interact for a common activity essential for survival of the body.
The body has 11 systems:
Circulatory: heart blood vessels, blood
Digestive: mouth pharynx, esophogas, stomach, intestine, salivary glands, pancreas, liver, gallbladder
Respiratory: nose pharynx...
organ systems (circulatory and muscular) help stabilize body temperature to maintain
homeostasis. The heart pumps as a result of a cardiac muscle contraction. Blood flow delivers
oxygen and nutrients and removes wastes. Muscle action help the blood circulate. Without the
muscular system, the...

1. List the major diseases of the urinary system and summarize their causes.
2. Describe how hemodialysis can help restore homeostasis of the blood in the event of kidney failure.
developed for overall integration of the organism are the nervous and hormonal systems. These two systems control by negative feedback the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory and integumentary systems of the body that are utilized to maintaining the internal environment of the body at optimum...
give oxygen to the cells in the circulatorysystem. Vice versa, if the
circulatorysystem was not existent there would be no way for the oxygenated blood to
get carried throughout the body keeping cells alive and functioning.
How do you know that homeostasis was achieved...

Identify the form(s) in which each of the following is carried in mammalian blood:
Carbon dioxide, oxygen, water, salts, lipids, nitrogenous waste, other products of digestion.
The mammalian circulatorysystem has 4 main functions:
(Summarize the general functions of the respiratory system.)
The primary function of the respiratory system is to supply the blood with oxygen in order for the blood to deliver oxygen to all parts of the body. The respiratory system does this through breathing. When we breathe, we inhale oxygen and exhale...
