Expert Answer:

Systemic circulation is the portion of the cardiovascular system which carries oxygenated blood away from the heart, to the body, and returns deoxygenated blood back to the heart.

Pulmonary circulation on the other hand, carries oxygen-depleted blood away from the heart, to the lungs, and returns oxygenated blood back to the heart.
