Mitral Valve

We just learned about the tricuspid valve between the right atrium and ventricle.

Another valve is called the mitral valve and it is between the left atrium and left ventricle.

It opens to let blood flow from the left atrium into the left ventricle, and then closes so the blood doesn't flow back into the left atrium.
