Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) can store intracardiac electrograms (EGMs) in sinus rhythm (SR), at the onset of spontaneous ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VT) or during their course. This allows the investigation of unknown features of the heart electrical activity associated with different cardiac rhythms. In this study we propose a non(More)
Cardiac morbidity and mortality increases with the population age. To investigate the underlying pathological mechanisms, and suggest new ways to reduce clinical risks, computational approaches complementing experimental and clinical investigations are becoming more and more important. Here we explore the possible processes leading to the occasional onset(More)
Mechanisms involved in the initiation of fibrillation and defibrillation are complex and still not totally understood. This paper computationally investigated the effect of monophasic, biphasic and reversed biphasic stimuli on single cardiomyocyte, with a modified Ten Tusscher model of human ventricular action potential (AP) and calcium dynamics.
