Multicellular organisms have developed transport and circulatory systems to deliver oxygen and food to cells and remove carbon dioxide and metabolic wastes. The lymphatic system is an extension of the human circulatory system that includes cell-mediated and antibody-mediated immune systems. The human circulatory system functions to transport blood and oxygen from the lungs to the various tissues of the body. The heart pumps the blood throughout the body. Living things must be capable of transporting nutrients, wastes and gases to and from cells. Single-celled organisms use their cell surface as a point of exchange with the outside environment. The components of the human circulatory system include the heart, blood, red and white blood cells, platelets, and the lymphatic system.
