what are the options

2. baches says:

I believe that the answer is D because the systemic circulation is based on the oxygenated blood

3. Expert says:

Organism, organ system, organs, tissue, cells

4. deedy289 says:

Your answer would be D, Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body and pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs.

These two circulations are part of the circulatory system, with the pulmonary circulation taking deoxygenated blood to the lungs and returning it oxygenated with the oxygen we breathe in, then that oxygenated blood going around the body delivering that oxygen and coming back deoxygenated.

Hope this helped!

B. Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body and pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs.

Explanation:

Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body.

Pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs.

The other options are wrong. Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body.

$What is a difference between systemic and pulmonary circulation? a. systemic circulation carries d$

6. Niaax7803 says:

It transports deoxygenated blood to the lungs to absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide. The oxygenated blood then flows back to the heart. Systemic circulation moves blood between the heart and the rest of the body. It sends oxygenated blood out to cells and returns deoxygenated blood to the heart.

So its Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body and pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs

A

Explanation:

In the normal fetal circulation, oxygenated blood is flows from the placenta to the liver through the umbilical vein. From the liver it flows through the ductus venosus and portal sinus to the inferior Vena Cava and then into the right atrium.

From the right atrium, majority of the blood pass through the foramen ovale into the left atrium. The foramen ovale is a small opening in the wall between the right atrium and the left atrium. It is a normal anatomical structure in fetuses which allows oxygenated blood to bypass the pulmonary circulation as the fetus is not yet getting oxygenated blood from the lungs. The foramen ovale closes at birth when the lungs become functional.

From the left atrium, the blood flows into the left ventricle and into the aorta for systemic circulation. A small amount goes through the pulmonary vessels to the lungs.

Systemic circulation involves movement of the blood between the heart and body, while coronary circulation involves movement of blood within the heart

9. Svetakotok says:

The systemic circulation is how blood goes to most of the body. The pulmonary circulation is how blood goes through the lungs .

Explanation:

Hope it helped you!

For plato users to sum it up: Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood to the body and pulmonary circulation carries deoxygenated blood to the lungs

1.) The second choice - Fluid levels could not be maintained. Kidneys manage fluid levels, electrolyte balance, and other factors that keep the internal environment of the body within constant parameters.

2.) The third option - secrete fluids that protect the inside of the trachea. Functions of epithelial cells include secretion, selective absorption, protection, transcellular transport, and sensing.

3.) Letter B - Alan is trying to prevent acne but failing to prevent skin cancer. Since not wearing sunscreen causes skin cancer. And oily skin can cause acne.

4.) Letter A - lupus. Lymphatic disease is a class of disorders which directly affect the components of the lymphatic system - a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. In lupus, the immune system inappropriately attacks tissues in various parts of the body. This abnormal activity leads to tissue damage and illness.

5.) Letter A - Systemic circulation involves movement of the blood between the heart and the body, while coronary circulation involves movement of the blood within the heart. Systemic circulation occurs between the heart and the entire body while Coronary circulation is the circulation of blood in the blood vessels of the heart muscle (myocardium).

12. jailenevazquez755 says:

The right option is; In pulmonary circulation, deoxygenated blood is pumped from the heart's right ventricle, while in the systemic circulation, oxygenated blood is pumped from the heart's left ventricle.

The circulatory system is functionally divided into two parts; pulmonary circulation and systemic circulation. The pulmonary circulation transports deoxygenated blood away from the heart’s right ventricle to the lungs which is re-saturated with oxygen before it is released into systemic circulation. The systemic circulation transports oxygenated blood from the heart’s left ventricle to the capillaries in body tissues through the arteries.
