Every cell in the body needs oxygen to survive and function. This video animation demonstrates how the circulatory system distributes oxygenated blood.
Blood enters the heart and flows to the lungs to receive oxygen. This oxygenated blood then returns to the heart , which pumps it throughout the body. To ensure that oxygen reaches cells as needed, the heart must beat in a strong, rhythmic pattern. This steady beat relies upon contractions of the heart tissue at regular intervals.
