The dynamics of ventricular fibrillation caused by irregular excitation is simulated in the frame of the monodomain model with an action potential model due to Aliev-Panfilov for a human 3D geometry. The numerical solution of this multiscale reaction-diffusion problem is attacked by algorithms which are fully adaptive in both space and time (code library KARDOS). The obtained results clearly demonstrate an accurate resolution of the cardiac potential during the excitation and the plateau phases… CONTINUE READING
