Q. 21 D5.0( 2 Votes )

Draw the diagram of a sectional view of the human heart and label the following parts:

The part which prevents the backward flow of blood.

Answer :

● In the Right Side


Blood flows from your right atrium into your right ventricle through the open tricuspid valve. When the ventricles are full, the tricuspid valve shuts. This prevents blood from flowing backward into the atria while the ventricles contract.


● In the Left Side


Blood flows from your left atrium into your left ventricle through the open mitral valve. When the ventricles are full, the mitral valve shuts. This prevents blood from flowing backward into the atria while the ventricles contract.


Also, the aortic valve closes quickly to prevent blood from flowing back into the left ventricle, which is already filling up with new blood. Blood leaves the heart through the aortic valve, into the aorta, and to the body. This pattern is repeated, causing blood to flow continuously to the heart, lungs, and body.
