Four Heart Valves – How Do They Open And Close?
By Adam Pick on March 30, 2008
A few days ago, I posted a blog about what normal heart valves look like.
Well… Here’s a quick, interesting follow-up to that story about each of the four heart valves.
I was just on Youtube.com and came across a very neat video which shows each of the four heart valves opening and closing within during heartbeats – the aortic valve, the mitral valve, the tricuspid valve and the pulmonary valve.
It’s a pretty fascinating video that shows not one but each of the four heart valves, so I thought I would share the link.
I hope this helps better explain how the four heart valves open and close.
Keep on tickin!
