The objective of this work is the computational simulation of a patient-specific electrocardiogram (EKG) using a novel, robust, efficient, and modular finite element-based simulation tool for cardiac electrophysiology. We apply a two-variable approach in terms of a fast action potential and a slow recovery variable, whereby the latter phenomenologically summarizes the concentration of ionic currents. The underlying algorithm is based on a staggered solution scheme in which the action potential… CONTINUE READING
