This video below displays an animation of a longitudinal view of a beating heart. Please note the mitral and tricuspid valves open during filling of the left ventricle (LV) and right ventricle (RV), respectively. These valves shut when the two ventricles start contracting or emptying. At that time, the aortic and pulmonary valves open up to allow the blood to be pumped into the aorta and pulmonary arteries (PA). The PA returns the oxygen-poor blood to the lungs to be "re-oxygenated" while the aorta sends the oxygenated blood to the rest of the body.

This video below displays an animation of a cross-sectional view of a beating heart. The cut was made just above the right (RV) and left ventricle (LV).
