Blood Circulatory System

The mechanism by which blood is transported round the body, usually consisting of the heart pumping blood round the body round a series of highways called arteries and arterioles, full of oxygenated blood. The deoxygenated blood is returned via veins back to the heart and lungs for oxygenation, hence the word 'circulatory'.
