Abstract
Text-E: http://www.bcamath.org/en/workshops/cardiac2013/general In cardiac muscle, a change in transmembrane cellular potential produces a response known as action potential, that propagates along tissue. Many cardiac malfunctions are associated to problems in propagation, sometimes inducing the formation of rotors. When unstable, they can give rise to ventricular fibrillation, in which synchronous excitation is lost among different parts of the ventricle, impeding contraction, and causing deat...
