The inclusion of nonconducting media, mimicking cardiac fibrosis, in two models of cardiac tissue produces the formation of ectopic beats. The fraction of nonconducting media in comparison with the fraction of healthy myocytes and the topological distribution of cells determines the probability of ectopic beat generation. First, a detailed subcellular(More)
The heart is a robust and reliable organ that, approximately once per second, pumps the blood to the whole body. This activity involves the fine coupling of numerous components involving a large variety of physical processes and covering a wide range of scales. For instance, heart function depends on cell metabolism, electrophysiology, and mechanics; ion(More)
