Traditionally it is assumed that during cardiac depolarization the macroscopic current generators that produce electrocardiographic voltages can be represented as a uniform double-layer source, coincident with the macroscopic boundary between resting and depolarized cardiac fibers as measured with extracellular electrodes ("uniform" hypothesis). A segment of this boundary is thus considered as a current dipole oriented perpendicular to the boundary. We present evidence that, contrary to the… CONTINUE READING
