Understanding How The Human Circulatory System Works

When you take a close look at theIf you take a see closer at the circulatory system, it will look like a big ball of wool that a kitty has gotten hold of, and made it into one big tangled mess. In Reality the circulatory system is credibly a lot easier to sort out then that fleece would be.
Our general knowledge of the heart is,if it is unhealthy, we may get a heart attack. That there are four rooms in the heart, and that there is a whole string of veins and arteries We dont know a whole lot about these except, that if we cut an artery we could bleed to death. Another fact that is somewhat ordinary to us, is we know that if we have too much fat in our blood, then cholesterol has something to do with it, and its not healthy for us. Our wisdom of the circulatory system may jus end here. of the circulatory system. In Truth when you stop to consider about it, thats a fair amount of knowledge.
If we had just a a couple more details to our wisdom it may cause many us to reckon about how it actually affects our entire bodies, and that by familiarizing what it requires, and why it requires certain items, we will be all the more likely to ensure it gets it.
At times to thoroughly visualize something it helps to paint a picture. So let me do something the same to that here ,and give you something that is easy to see.
Imagine a two lane main road. One is going Northward the other South. At the beginning of the main road going southward is a big manufacturing plant (the heart). In this industrial plant are four chambers (four chambers of the heart) that from each one develop a material, for the final merchandise that this party makes(the enriched oxygen filled blood cells). This good merchandise is pumped out into containers (arteries). These containers are now transferred away from the industrial plant (heart) down the main road (the blood flow) to several storehouses on the way(body organs that need the enriched cells.)
Now in the other direction coming down the North main road is containers (veins) coming back toward the industrial plant. These containers are containing waste materials (blood that requires to be re oxygenated) These are dropped off at the industrial plant (heart) where it will be refurbished(re oxygenated) and then sent out once again in the good containers (arteries).
This process takes place again and again continuously. This scenerio is only represented this way as a visual image, to merely aid you know how the circulatory system works.
If we wanted to, we could continue with this visual image as to what happens in the four rooms (chambers of the heart) in order to get the good product ready.
Hopefully this has given you a little more apprehension of how the system works and the grandness of it . For example going back to our visualisation, if one good were to fail then it would have a direct affect on all the other steps. This is incisively would befall on in our bodies.
