Question [CLICK ON ANY CHOICE TO KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER]
TYPE of blood flow that cycles to the body tissues; allows for oxygen to be distributed to all the cells of the body.
A
systemic circulation
B
pulmonary circulation
C
Either A or B
D
None of the above
Explanation: 

Detailed explanation-1: -The systemic circulation provides the functional blood supply to all body tissue. It carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and picks up carbon dioxide and waste products. Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood from the left ventricle, through the arteries, to the capillaries in the tissues of the body.

Detailed explanation-2: -The pulmonary circulation is a short loop from the heart to the lungs and back again. The systemic circulation carries blood from the heart to all the other parts of the body and back again.

Detailed explanation-3: -The arteries (red) carry oxygen and nutrients away from your heart, to your body’s tissues. The veins (blue) take oxygen-poor blood back to the heart.

Detailed explanation-4: -The circulatory system delivers oxygen and nutrients to cells and takes away wastes. The heart pumps oxygenated and deoxygenated blood on different sides. The types of blood vessels include arteries, capillaries and veins.

Detailed explanation-5: -The circulatory system (cardiovascular system) pumps blood from the heart to the lungs to get oxygen. The heart then sends oxygenated blood through arteries to the rest of the body. The veins carry oxygen-poor blood back to the heart to start the circulation process over.
