Cardiac muscle is considered to consist of an intracellular domain and an exracellular or interstitial domain. Current passes from one domain to the other through the cell membrane. Electric potentials in interstitial space are shown to be associated with current sources proportional to the spatial gradient of the cellular transmembrane action potential, φ m . Hence, given the distribution of φ m throughout the myocardium, one can calculate the surface electrocardiogram and extracorporeal… CONTINUE READING
