What is the difference between pulmonary circulation and systemic circulation in cardiovascular system

Report as

The main difference between pulmonary circulation and systemic circulation in the cardiovascular system is in their functions. The pulmonary circulation system carries non-oxygenated blood away from the heart to the lungs while the systemic circulation system carries blood away from the heart to the body. In addition to this, the systemic system starts at the left ventricle but the pulmonary system begins in the right ventricle.
