The Cardiovascular System (Known as circulatory system) is an important system within the human body which functions with specific organs such as the heart, blood vessels – including capillaries, veins, and arteries along with small blood vessels, and blood.
The cardiovascular system works by your inhaling process. As you inhale, the air goes towards your lungs. Since the air contains oxygen, your blood stream absorbs this through your lungs. The heart forces the ‘oxygenated’ blood through a range of connecting blood vessels specifically speaking arteries which travel around your body providing your cells with the necessary materials that the blood contains.
As the blood reaches your cells the oxygen is released in order for the cells to function.

The respiratory system consists of the lungs, trachea, bronchi, and the diaphragm. The lungs are the most important organ of this system. Red blood cells that the blood contains are what cause the oxygen to be absorbed and carbon dioxide to be released.
The trachea can be also named as the windpipe which functions by filtering the gases we breathe which is carried on through the bronchi. The bronchi appear as two tubes like structures which have the function of getting air straight towards the inside of the lungs.
Lastly the diaphragm is what causes the breathing as it is the muscle which is located towards the bottom of the lungs. This muscle contracts as you inhale then turns flat proceeding to pull. This causes the surrounding area of the lungs to expand which assists

The enteric system has a large link towards cardiac output as the enteric system possesses digestive organs which are in need of approximately 30% of all the output from the cardiac. The digestive system itself has the function of splitting food into categorises of important portions including vitamins as well as nutrients. This is where the circulatory system kicks in as that is what is needed in order to deliver the necessary materials around the body. In a major way, both of these systems depend on each other and without the other their functions would not be able to
