Why Does the Heart Have Valves?

Answer

The heart has valves to regulate the amount of blood that gets in and out. All of the valves, when functioning normally, act as one-way valves to allow blood to flow either from one chamber to another. The opening and closing functions of the valves are defined by pressure differences generated within the heart.
