Were you looking for information on the Cardiovascular System? Cardiovasular system is a common misspelling of cardiovascular system.
The cardiovascular system consists of the heart, blood vessels, and blood. Its job is to carry oxygen and nutrients to cells throughout the body. It also collects carbon dioxide and other waste products that the body produces so that they can be disposed of.
When a problem arises within the cardiovascular system, it is known as a cardiovascular disease -- examples include coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. More than 70 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease. Learning about your personal risk factors and doing something about them can lower your chances of developing or dying from it.
