Diastole is when the heart muscles relax.

Depiction of a dastardly Diastole man while a woman relaxes with a cup of tea

The hair dresser dyed a dastardly (diastole) man’s hair while the next customer relaxed and waited with a cup of tea.

Diastolic phase

This is when the heart fills with blood. During this time the ventricles relax. This generates a suction force, which causes the blood to flow into the two ventricles. When the ventricles relax the pulmonary and aortic valves (semilunar valves) shut. At this time both the tricuspid and bicuspid valves (atrioventricular valves) are open, directing blood from the atria into the ventricles.
