A double loop circulatory system:
In a first order circulatory circuit, often called Double circulation is advantageous
the pulmonary circuit, blood is pumped to the lungs,
for mammals because it increases
thus acquiring oxygen while simultaneously
releasing carbon dioxide. Fully oxygenated blood the pressure and hence the flow
then enters the second order circuit, called rate of blood supplied to the tissues
