Regarding this, what are the 4 heart valves and where are they located?
The 4 heart valves are:
- Tricuspid valve. This valve is located between the right atrium and the right ventricle.
- Pulmonary valve. The pulmonary valve is located between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery.
- Mitral valve. This valve is located between the left atrium and the left ventricle.
- Aortic valve.
Also, how many valves does the heart have? four valves
Also, what are the functions of the heart valves?
The heart consists of four chambers, two atria (upper chambers) and two ventricles (lower chambers). There is a valve through which blood passes before leaving each chamber of the heart. The valves prevent the backward flow of blood.
Where are the valves in the heart?
The mitral valve and tricuspid valve are located between the atria (upper heart chambers) and the ventricles (lower heart chambers). The aortic valve and pulmonic valve are located between the ventricles and the major blood vessels leaving the heart.
