Learn more about the cardiovascular system using these system anatomy diagrams in high resolution! A total of five diagrams are available to show you the structure of cardiovascular system of our body. In the following images, the high quality cardiovascular system diagrams are available to help you understand more about the vital system in human body. We’ll start by giving you the first labeled diagram below.
The cardiovascular system diagram above shows that the system consists of the heart, blood vessels, and the approximately 5 liters of blood that the blood vessels transport. The blood contains oxygen, nutrients, wastes, and immune and other functional cells that help provide for homeostasis and basic functions of human cells and organs. Using the system diagram, we’ll know more about the organs that are participating in the cardiovascular system.
The heart is the key organ in the circulatory system. As a hollow, muscular pump, its main function is to propel blood throughout the body. The top of the heart, known as the heart’s base, connects to the great blood vessels of the body: the aorta, vena cava, pulmonary trunk, and pulmonary veins.
All these images here are free and downloadable in printable quality. Also provided is the unlabeled version of the diagram for any evaluation usage. Find other anatomy structure diagrams in the other posts in this site!
