Types of Body System

Circulatory System
Circulatory System

The circulatory system, also called the cardiovascular system or the vascular system, is an organ system that permits blood to circulate and transport nutrients (such as amino acids and electrolytes), oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, and blood cells to and from the cells in the body to provide nourishment and help in fighting diseases, stabilize temperature and pH, and maintain homeostasis.

Digestive System / Excretory System:
Digestive System / Excretory System:

The excretory system works with the respiratory, endocrine, and digestive system. The respiratory system works with it because it helps the lungs get rid of carbon dioxide and water vapors. It works with the endocrine system because the endocrine system has glands from the excretory system to get rid of wastes. It works with the digestive system to help get rid of wastes that you eat through the anus.

Endocrine
Endocrine

"Brain, heart and kidney function, as well as body temperature, growth and muscle strength — and much more — are at the mercy of thyroid function." Diseases of the endocrine system. Hormone levels that are too high or too low indicate a problem with the endocrine system.

Endocrine System:

The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.

Integumentary
Integumentary

The integumentary system comprises the skin and its appendages acting to protect the body from various kinds of damage, such as loss of water or abrasion from outside. The integumentary system includes hair, scales, feathers, hooves, and nails.

Integumentary System/ Exocrine System:
Integumentary System/ Exocrine System:

The integumentary system is an organ system consisting of the skin, hair, nails, and exocrine glands. The skin is only a few millimeters thick yet is by far the largest organ in the body. The average person’s skin weighs 10 pounds and has a surface area of almost 20 square feet.

Lymphatic
Lymphatic

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.

Nervous System:
Nervous System:

The nervous system is a complex collection of nerves and specialized cells known as neurons that transmit signals between different parts of the body. It is essentially the body's electrical wiring. It is essentially the body's electrical wiring.

Renal System / Urinary System:
Renal System / Urinary System:

The urinary system, also known as the renal system, produces, stores and eliminates urine, the fluid waste excreted by the kidneys. The kidneys make urine by filtering wastes and extra water from blood. Urine travels from the kidneys through two thin tubes called ureters and fills the bladder.

Respiratory
Respiratory

The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe.

Skeletal
Skeletal

The skeletal system is also susceptible to breaks, strains and fractures. While bones are meant to protect the body's vital organs, it takes about 10 to 16 pounds of pressure to break an average bone. Bones such as the skull and femur are much tougher to break.
