What are Types of Circulatory Circuits?

Types of Circulatory Circuits

There are two types of circuits the pulmonary and systemic circuits.

Pulmonary circuit

Pulmonary circuit provides blood only to the lungs. It carries deoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs, where carbon dioxide is removed, and oxygen is added. It then returns the oxygenated blood to the heart for distribution to the rest of the body.

Systemic circuit

The systemic circuit supplies all the cells, tissues, and organs of the body with oxygen-rich blood and returns oxygen-poor blood to the heart.
