Action potential durations and QT intervals

Here’s an interesting little result that is thanks to Kylie. She found it whilst doing the work for her paper on prediction of drug compound effects at the tissue scale using data on multiple ion channel block. But we didn’t … Continue reading

A standing cardiac electrical wave…?

Here’s my first post on an unexplained result. Normally at a ‘steady pacing’ rate cardiac tissue will recover enough to let the next wave through. But there’s a maximum rate you can achieve: if you try to pace faster than … Continue reading
