  Circulatory system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The primary purpose of the pulmonary circulation is to oxygenate the blood.
The now oxygenated blood returns to the left atrium via the pulmonary vein, fills the left ventricle during diastole, and is ejected into the aorta, the major artery which supplies blood to the body via its numerous branches.
The major arteries of the splanchnic circulation branch directly off the aorta and include the celiac artery (celiac axis), superior mesenteric artery, and inferior mesenteric artery.

This overview of Circulation, in regard to the human body, is supplied in an effort to better enable one to take control of their health.
The systemic circulation begins at the left side of the heart where the left atrium receives blood which has just returned from the pulmonary circulation, and is rich in oxygen.
Its flavonoids dilate coronary circulation and stabilizes heart muscle contractility by exerting a sympathetic action on the coronary circulation, and a parasympathetic action on the myocardial muscle.

The relative quantity of the later in the blood is a fair measure of the efficiency with which fat transfer has occurred, and is thus a positive indicator for the prevention of fat deposition in the blood vessels (contributing to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease).
Considered as more warming than angelica, Cinnamon stimulates both digestion and circulation and is therefore indicated for conditions with symptoms of 'cold', poor circulation to the extremities, edema, diarrhea and loss of appetite.
Acrid plants, are therefore indicated where there is sluggish circulation or 'cold' is a feature, and where inadequate digestion or the safety of food is in question.

 © The American Physiological Society - Carl J. Wiggers
Wiggers was born in Davenport, Iowa, and received the M.D. degree from the University of Michigan in 1906.
Wigger's substantial contributions to cardiovascular physiology were almost overshadowed by his teaching and leadership qualities; he personally supervised the training of over thirty-eight future department heads and research directors in prestigious institutions.
He authored several texts in circulatory physiology: Circulation in Health and Disease (1915), Pressure Pulses in the Cardiovascular System (1928), Physiology of Shock (1950), Circulatory Dynamics (1952), and Circulation in Health and Disease (first edition, 1934).

Generally the blood from the left atria is directed toward the systemic artery (body) and the blood from the right atria is directed toward the pulmocutaneous artery.
There is a well developed double circulation because under normal circumstances there is little mixing of blood in the ventricle.
Under normal(?) conditions, higher pressure from the left ventricle causes pressure in the left aortic arch to close a valve at its junction with the right ventricle and there is no mixing of oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood in the aorta.

However, you must realize that physiology is not a study of compartmentalized facts; rather, these "facts" provide the basis upon which you must begin to integrate the various systems of the body.
You must be aware that the practice of physiology requires skepticism, tolerance of ambiguity, and openness to new ideas.

Yet an understanding of the "new" physiology is essential for the proper use of new forms of medical technology and pharmacologic agents.
It is in this context that Lionel Opie's opus expertly integrates cellular and subcellular elements of cardiovascular physiology in an analysis of physiologic responses.
A particularly strong feature of this book is that the discussion always goes back to cellular and subcellular mechanisms, maintaining the connection between cellular physiology and overall integrative physiology.

In the systemic circulation, which serves the body except for the lungs, oxygenated blood from the lungs returns to the heart from two pairs of pulmonary veins, a pair from each lung.
It enters the left atrium, which contracts when filled, sending blood into the left ventricle (a large percentage of blood also enters the ventricle passively, without atrial contraction).
