What Does C-V System do? Circulate blood throughout entire body for Transport of oxygen to cells Transport of CO2 away from cells Transport of nutrients (glucose) to cells Movement of immune system components (cells, antibodies) Transport of endocrine gland secretions

Artery/Vein differences Arteries (aa.) Veins (vv.) Direction of flow Blood Away from Heart Blood to Heart Pressure Higher Lower Walls THICKER: Tunica media thicker than tunica externa THINNER: Tunica externa thicker than tunica media Lumen Smaller Larger Valves No valves Valves (see next)
