  Circulatory system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The circulatory system or cardiovascular system is the organ system which circulates blood around the body of most animals.
The human cardiovascular system comprises the blood, the heart, and a dual-circuit system of blood vessels that serve as conduits between the heart, the lungs, and the peripheral tissues of the body.
The respiratory system and renal system are intricately interrelated to cardiovascular function; it is generally held that these systems must be understood in relation to each other, if they are to be understood at all.

 Cardiovascular Exercise   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The first component of cardiovascular exercise is frequency of the exercise, which refers to the number of exercise sessions per week.
Those of you who are very out of shape and/or who are overweight and doing weight-bearing cardiovascular exercise such as an aerobics class or jogging, might want to have at least 36 to 48 hours of rest between workouts to prevent an injury and to promote adequate bone and joint stress recovery.
Your greatest challenge, however, is not learning new cardiovascular exercises or the proper technique; it's not learning the heart rate zone to train at for your goals and interests or how to monitor the intensity.

 CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS
Cardiovascular fitness also called cardiorespitory fitness is the ability of the lungs to provide oxygen to the blood and the heart to transport the oxygenated blood to the cells of the body.

 e-Cardiovascular.net: Information on the cardiovascular system; heart, blood vessels and normal function   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The cardiovascular system consists of a muscular pump, the heart, in a double circuit of pipes that carry blood from the heart to the lungs and back in one circuit, the pulmonary circulation, and to the rest of the body and back to the heart, the systemic circulation.
Lymph capillaries are also important in the absorption of fat in the intestines and in fighting infection throughout the body by the contribution of immunologic factors and lymphocytes.
Injury or failure of the cardiovascular system, especially the heart, is a critical problem in that peripheral tissues depend on the delivery of nutrients and the removal of wastes through the blood vascular system.
