Which are the three types of blood circulation in the body?
The SYSTEMIC CIRCULATION transfers oxygenated blood from a central pump (the heart) to all of the body tissues (systemic arterial system) and returns deoxygenated blood with a high carbon dioxide content from the tissues to the central pump (systemic venous system). The PULMONARY CIRCULATION is where oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange between the blood and alveolar air occurs. The PORTAL CIRCULATION normally is only one capillary bed for each branch of a circuit, however, there are a few instances where there are two capillary beds, one after each other, in series. hope this helps^_^

What is the roles of the pulmonary and systemic circulations?
Blood is pumped from the heart and it goes into two different directions. One goes to the body and carries blood rich in oxygen and nutrients. It picks up carbon dioxide and wastes from the cells and carries these back to the heart again. This forms a circle (circulation) through the body (systemic). The blood that came back needs to drop off the carbon dioxide at the lungs and pick up oxygen. This circulation is called the pulmonary circulation. These two happen at the same time and with the same beat of the heart.
What is the structural difference between pulmonary vessel walls and systemic vessel walls?
The role of the pulmonary circulation is to take blood that is poor in oxygen and load it up with oxygen. It also takes the carbon dioxide content of blood and gets rid of it, that is you exhale it. One role of the systemic cirulation to deliver oxygen rich blood to where it is needed. That is to say that cells need oxygen to do their work, the brain to think and the muscles to contract. They get their oxygen from the systemic circulation. But blood in the systemic circulation got its oxygen from being in the pulmonary circulation.

What is the difference between pulmonary and systemic circulation?
The heart functions as a double pump. The right side serves as the Pulmonary Circulation pump, shunting the carbon dioxide rich blood entering its chambers to the lungs to unload carbon dioxide and pick up oxygen and then back to the left side of the heart. ( the function of this circuit is strictly to provide gas exchange) The second circuit which carries oxygen rich blood from the left heart through body tissue and back to the right heart is called Systemic Circulation. It provides the functional blood supply to all body tissues. Pulmonary circulation is to your heart and systemic is everywhere else in your body denoting the part of the circulatory system concerned with the transportation of oxygen to and carbon dioxide from the body in general, especially as distinct from the pulmonary part concerned with the transportation of oxygen from and carbon dioxide to the lungs. Pulmonary circulation is a part of the cardiovascular system that is responsible for carrying de-oxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs and carry back the oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart. whereas Systemic circulation is a part of the cardiovascular system that is responsible for carrying oxygenated blood from the heart to the different parts of the body body and carry back the de-oxygenated blood from the different body parts back to the heart.
