The electrophysiologic properties of human atrium were studied with intracellular microelectrodes in 22 preparations of human right atrial tissue obtained at the time of corrective open heart surgery. Two types of fibers were identified: the first had electrical characteristics typical of atrial contractile cells and the second those of atrial specialized fibers. Automaticity developed only in the latter type of cell. In 36 impalements of specialized atrial fibers, resting membrane potential… CONTINUE READING
