Virtual electrode effects in defibrillation.

Abstract

This modeling study demonstrates that a re-entrant activity in a sheet of myocardium can be extinguished by a defibrillation shock delivered via extracellular point-source electrodes which establish spatially non-uniform applied field. The tissue is represented as a homogeneous bidomain with unequal anisotropy ratios in the cardiac conductivities. Spiral… (More)
