1: The parts of the circulatory system!

2: Diseases): | Angina: It is characterized by severe chest discomfort and pain. It is caused due to lack of blood supply to the muscles of the heart. Basically, it is manifested as a complication by the constriction of the blood vessels. Angina is a warning sign of an heart attack. Arrhythmia: Arrhythmia is irregular heart rhythm i.e. the heart beats abnormally at a slower or faster rate. Arrhythmia may be congenital and results from a heart defect. Atherosclerosis: Atherosclerosis results from accumulation of fatty deposits in the walls of the blood vessels, especially arteries. Over a period of time, the arterial walls harden and lose their elasticity. Arteries are primarily affected by atherosclerosis. Complication of atherosclerosis include cardiovascular disease and heart attack. Cardiomyopathy: This is caused due to weakening of the heart muscles or myocardium. In the early stages, the ventricular muscles or muscles of the lower heart chamber are affected. If left untreated, it spreads to the upper heart muscles. In severe cases, cardiomyopathy can result in congestive heart failure and at times, death. Congenital Heart Defects: These are defects present at birth and may be mild or severe. The exact cause of congenital heart disease is not known. In some cases, genetic problems cause this defect, while others develop without any reason. Coronary Artery Disease: Coronary artery disease or coronary heart disease is the most common disease of the circulatory system. It is caused due to accumulation of plaque in the coronary arterial walls, which impairs the blood supply to the heart. CAD is the leading cause of death all over the world. Hypertension: Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the common disorders of the circulatory system. Hypertension increases the risk of heart attack and other heart diseases. Hypercholesterolemia: Hypercholesterolmia is characterized by an elevated cholesterol level. There are two primary types of cholesterol, namely, low-density lipoproteins (LDL) or bad cholesterol and high-density lipoproteins (HDL) or good cholesterol. Presence of high amounts of bad cholesterol (LDL) increases the risk for heart diseases and stroke. Peripheral Vascular Disease: Peripheral vascular disease affects the blood circulation to the extreme portions of the body, including the arms and legs. Peripheral artery disease is the most common type of peripheral vascular disease, which is the deposition of fatty acids in the arterial walls. Symptoms inclde tingling, numbness and other complications in the extremeties. | Angina: It is characterized by severe chest discomfort and pain.

4: Facts about The Circulatory System The heart beats around 3 billion times in the averages person's life. About 8 million blood cells die in the human body every second, and the same number are born each second. Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are some 5 million red blood cells. It takes about 20 seconds for a red blood cell to circle the whole body. Red blood cells make approximately 250,000 round trips of the body before returning to the bone marrow, where they were born, to die. Red blood cells may live for about 4 months circulating throughout the body, feeding the 60 trillion other body cells.
