Arrhythmogenic mechanisms of the Purkinje system during electric shocks: a modeling study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The function of the Purkinje system (PS) is to ensure fast and uniform activation of the heart. Although this vital role during sinus rhythm is well understood, this is not the case when shocks are applied to the heart, especially in the case of failed defibrillation. The PS activates differently from the myocardium, has different… (More)
