You will surely have to trace the path of blood around the body for a test. This song will help you learn it.
This song describes the circuit of blood through the body. On the lyric sheet, deoxygenated blood is denoted in blue and oxygenated blood in red. Recall that the pulmonary veins return oxygenated blood to the heart for distribution to the systemic circuit, so in the pulmonary circuit blue = artery, while in the systemic circuit red = artery. Note that each chorus is different to describe the many necessities distributed by blood throughout the body. Travel of blood through new sections of the body is noted in italicized green brackets. Some students struggle with cardiac and circulatory subjects so spots for notes are interspersed throughout this song.
