The Circulatory System
A variety of animals' circulatory systems are compared to the human circulatory system. Paul Andersen uses his SMART Board to show the differences between two, three, and four chamber hearts, focusing on the human heart. Blood vessels and blood components are thoroughly discussed, as well as the cardiac cycle.
