Practica Interpretar El Sistema Cardiovascular | Practice Interpreting The Cardiovascular System

The cardiovascular system, also known as the circulatory system, is responsible for circulating blood throughout the body. It consists of the heart, blood vessels (arteries, veins, and capillaries), and blood. The heart pumps oxygen-rich blood from the lungs to the rest of the body through arteries, and it receives oxygen-poor blood from the body and pumps it to the lungs for oxygenation. Blood vessels transport the blood to various tissues and organs, delivering oxygen and nutrients while removing waste products. The cardiovascular system plays a crucial role in maintaining homeostasis, transporting hormones, and regulating body temperature.

Spanish:

El sistema cardiovascular, también conocido como sistema circulatorio, es responsable de hacer circular la sangre por todo el cuerpo. Está compuesto por el corazón, los vasos sanguíneos (arterias, venas y capilares) y la sangre. El corazón bombea sangre rica en oxígeno desde los pulmones al resto del cuerpo a través de las arterias, y recibe sangre pobre en oxígeno del cuerpo para bombearla hacia los pulmones y que se oxigene. Los vasos sanguíneos transportan la sangre a diferentes tejidos y órganos, suministrando oxígeno y nutrientes mientras eliminan productos de desecho. El sistema cardiovascular desempeña un papel crucial en el mantenimiento de la homeostasis, el transporte de hormonas y la regulación de la temperatura corporal.
