The circulatory system brings oxygen in the blood to the cell, The respiratory system puts blood into the blood, The muscular system allows the reparatory system to bring oxygen into the body.


The muscular system uses the diaphragm to enlarge the volume of the lungs. An increased volume in the lungs allows air containing 20% Oxygen to enter the lungs.

The enriched Oxygen air diffuses into the Oxygen poor blood in the pulmonary capillaries. This is the function of the respiratory system.

The muscular system uses the heart muscles to pump the now Oxygen rich blood to the arteries that carry the blood to the bodies cells.

The circulatory system powered by the heart carries the Oxygen rich blood to the cells. In the capillary arteries the Oxygen rich blood diffuses into the Oxygen poor cells.

The Muscular system powers the movement of Oxygen to the cells. The Respiratory system brings the Oxygen into connect with the blood. The Circulatory system carries the blood to the cells.
