Integumentary System
Chapter 5
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
The skin vasculature is an important blood reservoir and
provides a site for heat loss from the body
Skeletal System
Chapters 6–8
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
Bones are the sites of hematopoiesis; protect cardiovascular
organs by enclosure; and provide a calcium depot
Muscular System
Chapters 9–10
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
The muscle “pump” aids venous return; aerobic exercise
enhances cardiovascular efficiency and helps prevent
atherosclerosis

Nervous System
Chapters 11–15
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
The ANS regulates cardiac rate and force; sympathetic division
maintains blood pressure and controls blood flow to skin for
thermoregulation
Endocrine System
Chapter 16
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes; blood serves as a transport vehicle for hormones
Various hormones influence blood pressure (epinephrine, ANP,
angiotensin II, thyroxine, ADH); estrogen maintains vascular
health in premenopausal women
Lymphatic System/Immunity
Chapters 20–21
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients to
lymphatic organs, which house immune cells; provides transport
medium for lymphocytes and antibodies; carries away wastes
The lymphatic system picks up leaked fluid and plasma proteins
and returns them to the cardiovascular system; immune cells
protect cardiovascular organs from specific pathogens
Respiratory System
Chapter 22
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
The respiratory system carries out gas exchange: loads oxygen
and unloads carbon dioxide from the blood; respiratory
“pump” aids venous return
Digestive System
Chapter 23
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
The digestive system provides nutrients to the blood including
iron and B vitamins essential for RBC (and hemoglobin)
formation
Urinary System
Chapters 25–26
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes; blood pressure drives filtration in the kidneys
The urinary system helps regulate blood volume and pressure by
altering urine volume and releasing renin
Reproductive System
Chapter 27
The cardiovascular system delivers oxygen and nutrients; carries
away wastes
Estrogen maintains vascular and osseous health in women
