The cardiovascular system works in conjunction with the respiratory system to ensure delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues and removal of carbon dioxide and other waste products from the tissues. Muscle contraction is dependent on a flow of electrical charge across muscle cell membranes. Heart or cardiac muscle is no exception. At rest the interior of cardiac muscle cells is negative relative to the exterior so that the resting membrane potential is −90 mV. The electrolytes sodium, chloride, potassium and calcium are all important for normal cardiac function.

CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM The heart is responsible for pumping blood around the body and consists of four chambers: two atria and two ventricles. Vessels carrying blood from the heart are called arteries, while those carrying blood to the heart are called veins. Lymphatics assist in returning fluid from the interstitial spaces to the blood. The cardiovascular system works in conjunction with the respiratory system to ensure delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the body tissues and removal of carbon dioxide and other waste products from the tissues.

Renal disease can also cause hypoalbuminaemia due to protein loss through the kidney. As many anaesthetic and analgesic drugs are transported in the circulation bound to albumin, there will be more active drug in the circulation in patients with hypoalbuminaemia. Hence animals may require lower doses of protein-bound anaesthetic and analgesic agents. In kidney disease, renal excretion of many anaesthetic agents will be decreased, meaning that the drug half-life will be increased. The kidney is involved with the endocrine system.
