Circulatory system

  • A. A. Stokhof

The circulatory system can only function optimally when both the flow of lymph and the circulation of blood are adequate. Examination of the lymphatic system, chiefly by examination of the lymph nodes, was described in Chapter 8. The examination of the remainder of the circulatory system can be divided into:
  • arterial system

  • capillary system

  • venous system

  • the heart.
