Circulatory system and blood Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

in warm conditions, the diameter of small blood vessels near the surface of the body increases, which increases blood flow vasodilation
in cold conditions, the diameter of small blood vessels near the surface of the body decreases, which reduces blood flow vasoconstriction
