The valves of the heart are the tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve, mitral valve, and the aortic valve.

Its functions:

Tricuspid Valve: This valve separates the right atrium from the left ventricle and regulates the blood flow between them. It allow blood to flow from the right atrium into the right ventricle, and prevent back flow of the same.

Pulmonary Valve: This valve separates the right ventricle from the left pulmonary artery. These valves prevent the control of flow of the blood from the right ventricle into the left pulmonary artery.

Mitral Valve: This valve (also known as the bicuspid valve) prevents the backflow of blood from the left ventricle into the left atrium.

Aortic Valve: It controls the blood flow from the ventricle into the rest of the body.
