BlueGene Biotech's Research For Cardiovascular

1. Circulatory System In The Human Body

They form a circulatory system in the human body, that is, the cardiovascular system. The heart controls the circulation of blood in the blood vessels through contraction and then aims to provide oxygen, various nutrients and hormones to maintain life activities. In this process, it will also be able to eliminate the waste generated by metabolism through the excretory organs.

2. Cardiovascular System's Components

The cardiovascular system is composed of the heart and blood vessels, and blood vessels include arteries, veins and capillaries. The heart is the power organ that drives blood flow. The heart is divided into four cavities, that is, the left and right atrium, the left and right ventricle. Arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood out of the heart. Veins are blood vessels that carry blood back to the heart. Capillaries are blood vessels connecting arteries and veins with very thin pipe diameters and very thin pipe walls. The cycle of blood is a process that goes round and round, it is starting from the ventricle and returns to the atrium through arteries, capillaries and veins, and then this is called blood circulation. It is also divided into the systemic circulation and pulmonary circulation.
