Systematic: carry blood to and from all body tissues b. Vessels are the tubing i. Designed to carry blood c. Blood transports required factors needed by tissues/cells in body i. ii. Nutrients and waste iii. Hormones iv. Immune cells 2. Heart Anatomy a. Lies within the mediastinum b. 3 layers of pericardium (sac that encloses the heart) i. Fibrous pericardium: outer layer 1.
