Cardio Vascular System
Were you looking for information on the Cardiovascular System? Cardio vascular system is a common misspelling of cardiovascular system.
The heart, blood vessels, and blood are the main components of the cardiovascular system. This system is designed to carry oxygen and vital nutrients to cells throughout the body. It also collects carbon dioxide and other waste products that the body produces so that they can be eliminated.
When a problem arises within the system, it is known as a cardiovascular disease. There are over 60 different types of cardiovascular disease, and coronary artery disease and stroke are two of the most common. All of the different types of cardiovascular disease somehow affect the heart ("cardio") or the blood vessels ("vascular"). While some of these problems are present at birth, other ones develop over the course of several years.
