Description: The drawing on the left shows the circulatory system in a female. The drawing on the right shows the lymphatic system in a male.

The circulatory system is made up of the heart and blood vessels and moves blood to and from the tissues and organs throughout the body. It also carries oxygen and other gases, nutrients, and hormones to the tissues and helps them get rid of waste products. The lymphatic system connects with the blood system and is often considered part of the circulatory system. It is made up of tissues and organs that make, store, and carry cells that help the body fight infections and other diseases.
