What are the main circulatory routes?

What are the main circulatory routes?

There Are Two Types of Circulation: Pulmonary Circulation and Systemic Circulation.

How many circulatory routes are there?

The cardiovascular system is composed of two circulatory paths: pulmonary circulation, the circuit through the lungs where blood is oxygenated; and systemic circulation, the circuit through the rest of the body to provide oxygenated blood.

What is the path of normal blood circulation?

Blood comes into the right atrium from the body, moves into the right ventricle and is pushed into the pulmonary arteries in the lungs. After picking up oxygen, the blood travels back to the heart through the pulmonary veins into the left atrium, to the left ventricle and out to the body’s tissues through the aorta.

Where does the blood move in pulmonary circulation?

Pulmonary circulation moves blood between the heart and the lungs. It transports deoxygenated blood to the lungs to absorb oxygen and release carbon dioxide.

How are drugs administered by the IV route?

A drug administered by the intravenous (IV) route is given directly into a vein as direct injection or infusion. Achieves predictable and precise control over drug plasma levels compared to other routes

Where does systemic circulation carry oxygenated blood to?

It carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and picks up carbon dioxide and waste products. Systemic circulation carries oxygenated blood from the left ventricle, through the arteries, to the capillaries in the tissues of the body.

Where does the drug reach in the systemic route?

In Systemic route the drug reaches to the systemic circulation (Blood). So that it is called systemic route. Systemic Route is again classified into two classes:- Enteral Route: – Inthis route the drug is placed in the Gastrointestinal Tract and then it absorbs to the blood.
