Circulatory System

By: TJ Hernandez

Structure and Function

The function of the circulatory system is to deliver oxygen, nutrient molecules, and hormones and the removal of carbon dioxide, ammonia and other metabolic wastes. Blood pressure indicates the amount of force pushing against the walls of your arteries. Capillaries are some of the most important blood vessels because they transfer oxygen to tissues throughout the body.

Blood

The function of blood is to deliver nutrients to cells. White blood cells form clots which help us when we are bleeding. Red blood cells transport oxygen. The Rh factor is the trait of your blood that tells if your blood has proteins in it. Blood diseases and disorders effect red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. A cell organelle that is most like the circulatory system is cytoplasm.
