The Integumentary System functions to protect the body, receive sensory input, help control body temperature and synthesized vitamin D.
The Cardiovascular System functions to transport the blood, the nutrients, the gases and the waste. It also defend us against certain diseases and it helps to control the body temperature, fluid as well as the pH balance.
