  • Your circulatory system is a network of not only one system but three systems working together:
    • Cardiovascular (heart)
    • Pulmonary (lungs)
    • Systemic (arteries, veins, coronary, and portal vessels)
  • Smoking greatly increases your risk of atherosclerosis. This occurs when plaque builds up on the walls of your arteries and blocks blood flow, sometimes called “hardening of the arteries”.
  • Valves are like doors between the chambers of the heart. When they function properly, they operate smoothly while opening and closing.
  • Some circulatory system problems have no symptoms. This is why it’s important to visit with your primary care doctor annually.
