Double circulation is a pathway followed by blood in which it travels throughout the different organs of the body through the veins and arteries. This type of circulation is carried out in humans.

Double circulation is the most effective circulation wherein blood flows in two pathways:

  • The systematic pathway is involved in carrying oxygenated blood travels from the left side of the heart to all other body parts wherein exchange of nutrients, gases etc occurs, carrying the deoxygenated blood back again to the right side of the heart.
  • The pulmonary pathway is involved in carrying deoxygenated blood from the right side of the heart to the lungs wherein gaseous exchange occurs in the lungs making the blood oxygenated
