Computer simulation of the spread of heart muscle stimulation

Project No. BG10 #031

Status:

completed 12/1998

Aims:

Electrical accidents can lead to irregular heart beats and heart chamber fibrillation. Goal: improving the level of knowledge

Activities/Methods:

Analysis of the conditions for the occurrence of rotary excitatory waves on the ring model of heart muscle cells based on a computer model

Results:

Improved understanding of the development of rotary excitatory waves and the inducement of heart chamber fibrillation
