3D rotation of vasculature


The integrated system of the heart, blood and vessels is known as the cardiovascular system. If the vessels in your body were stretched end-to-end, they would extend for 60,000 miles-- enough to circle the globe two-and-a-half-times. And during an average lifetime, the heart will pump about one million barrels of blood - enough to fill four supermarkets.
