The cardiovascular and respiratory systems function  in an integrated manner. The changes that occur  during exercise are the classic example of how these  systems act not as isolated parts, but as an  integrated whole.   During exercise working muscle requires more  oxygen and the cardiovascular and respiratory  systems must adapt to meet that need by redirecting  blood and increasing cardiac output, respiratory rate  and tidal volume.
