Circulation and transport in humans

Students are often very interested in learning about human physiology. It is an area that they can relate to and health-related stories are regularly in the media.

However, consideration should be made when talking about disorders or mortality associated with heart disease. Students may have direct experience through the ill-health of a close relative or friend of the family.

The list looks at the biology of the human circulatory system as well as suggesting several practical activities.

Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
