Mammoth Memory

Naming the Valves

To remember the names of the valves in the heart learn the phrase:

“Tri pulling mi aorta.”

Tri = Tricuspid

Pulling = Pulmonary

Mi = Mitral   (pronounced My Tral)

Aorta = Aortic


Tricuspid, pulmonary, mitral, aortic is the order that the blood travels through the heart.
