1: The cardiovascular system includes the heart and the blood vessels. The heart pumps the blood and the vessels channel and deliver it throughout the body. The arteries, the veins, and capillaries make up these blood vessels...

2: The arteries carry blood filled with nutrients away from the heart to all parts of the body. Arteries are thick walled tubes with a covering of yellow, elastic fibers, which contain a filling of muscle that absorbs the tremendous pressure wave of a heart beat and slows the blood down...

3: The arteries eventually divide into smaller arterioles and then into even smaller capillaries...

4: One arteriole can serve as hundreds of capillaries, in every tissue of every organ bloods work is done whit it gives up what the cells need and takes away waste they don't need.

5: Capillaries join together to form small veins., which flow together into larger main veins, and these deliver deoxygenated blood back into the heart. Veins have thin slack walls because the blood has lost pressure from being pumped from the heart... | The veins then enter the pulmonary arteries into the wall of the right side of the heart if flows through them past the arteries to collect oxygen...
