Design of a multi-point laser scanned optical monitor of cardiac action potential propagation: Application to microreentry in guinea pig atrium

A system is described that uses a scanned laser beam to excite voltage-dependent fluorescence in cardiac muscle and thereby monitors propagation of the action potential. Details of the optical and electronic design are presented along with descriptions of the system performance. The scanner can monitor membrane voltage activity from 64 points simultaneously… CONTINUE READING
