The Cardiovascular System is made up of the heart, blood vessels and arteries and blood. Each pump of the heart sends blood to cells and tissues in the body. The blood carries nutrients and oxygen to the body while carrying carbon dioxide away and out of the body. The Cardiovascular and Lymphatic systems together make up the circulatory system in the body.
