New sections(s) - homeostasis, types of blood, types of arteries, etc.[edit]

Seems to me that while this article does a good job of defining the different types of circulatory systems, it does very little to go in-depth with them. The section on its discovery is longer than them, for Heaven's sake. So, I propose a new section dealing with the specificities of each type of circulatory system.

Citations[edit]

This article lacks way too many citations. --RAC e CA12 (talk) 23:39, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Anywhere in particular that you think needs more references? I am going to work on this. Bakerstmd (talk) 18:35, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Abstract illustration of circulatory system from Blausen[edit]

Abstract illustration of human cardiovascular system, with lungs on left/right, head on top, body on bottom, and heart in center. Red indicates oxygenated blood. See full animation.

Among the recently donated heart-related images from Blausen was the image to the right, giving an abstract representation of the human cardiovascular system (left/right are the lungs, with oxygenation shown as a blue-to-red color transition, while top/bottom are the head and body, with oxygen depletion shown by a red-to-blue color transition, with the heart in the center). However this article already has a lot of illustrations for the human circulatory system, so I wasn't sure where it could go or if it was useful. If you think it's useful please help to insert it. Thank you! Dcoetzee 09:35, 1 July 2013 (UTC) by:kyla — Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.127.85.203 (talk) 01:21, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Systemic circulation[edit]

Duplicate scope, no need for numerous articles dividing up the circulatory system in different ways when one article will do. Tom (LT) (talk) 04:11, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

  • Comment: If systemic circulation is merged, then I would also suggest merging Pulmonary Circulation, as they are the two types of circulation in humans. I agree with Epipelagic - if this Systemic Circulation is merged, then we should aslo merge the many other related articles. Awesomeshreyo (talk) 20:04, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Support – The little extra detail of Systemic circulation can be easily added to the corresponding section in this article. Most of the text is redundant and sections like Capillaries offer general information, not exclusive for the systemic circulation. About the comments above, I think that we should treat articles separately and see if a split is appropriate or not – merging Systemic circulation doesn't mean that we have to merge all those articles. --Tilifa Ocaufa (talk) 00:52, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
