During left bundle branch block (LBBB), electromechanical delay (EMD), defined as time from regional electrical activation (REA) to onset shortening, is prolonged in the late-activated left ventricular lateral wall compared with the septum. This leads to greater mechanical relative to electrical dyssynchrony. The aim of this study was to determine the(More)

In this paper, a new, real-time reconfigurable perceptron circuit element is presented. A six-transistor version used as a threshold gate, having a fan-in of three, producing adequate outputs for threshold of T = 1,2 and 3 is demonstrated by chip measurements. Subthreshold operation for supply voltages in the range of 100-350 mV is shown. The circuit(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Piston based mechanical chest compression devices deliver compressions and decompressions in an accelerated pattern, resulting in superior haemodynamics compared to manual compression in animal studies. The present animal study compares haemodynamics during two different hybrid compression patterns to a standard compression pattern(More)
Although t-tubules have traditionally been thought to be absent in atrial cardiomyocytes, recent studies have suggested that t-tubules exist in the atria of large mammals. However, it is unclear whether regional differences in t-tubule organization exist that define cardiomyocyte function across the atria. We sought to investigate regional t-tubule density(More)
AIMS Invaginations of the cellular membrane called t-tubules are essential for maintaining efficient excitation-contraction coupling in ventricular cardiomyocytes. Disruption of t-tubule structure during heart failure has been linked to dyssynchronous, slowed Ca(2+) release and reduced power of the heartbeat. The underlying mechanism is, however, unknown.(More)
