REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY Racetrack surface is a risk factor for Thoroughbred racehorse injury and death that can be engineered and managed. To investigate the relationship between surface and injury, the mechanical behaviour of dirt and synthetic track surfaces must be quantified. OBJECTIVES To compare dynamic properties of a dirt and a synthetic(More)
Ectopic beats in the heart require a heterogeneous substrate to develop into dangerous, whole-heart arrhythmias. In this study, a 1-D monodomain computer model that incorporated local heterogeneity in both the interstitial and intracellular spaces was used to investigate whether increased interstitial resistivity could modulate the escape of premature beats(More)
