    Abstract  Regional variation in ionic membrane currents causes differences in action potential duration (APD) and is proarrhythmic. After several weeks of ventricular pacing, AP morphology and duration are changed due to electrical remodeling of the transient outward potassium current (I...

    The human heartbeat interval is determined by complex nerve control and environmental inputs. As a result, the heartbeat interval for a human is a complex time series, as shown by previous studies. Most of the analysis algorithms proposed for characterizing the profile of heartbeat time series,...

    Background. Although sudden death is one of the most frequent causes of death in haemodialysis (HD) patients, the problem of cardiac arrhythmias, the major cause of these outcomes, has been little discussed. Methods. In 30 arrhythmia-prone HD patients, we compared the arrhythmogenic effects of...

  • apex beat. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p63 

    An encyclopedia entry for "apex beat" is presented. It refers to a normal heartbeat that is felt through the chest wall. During contraction, the heart's tip hits the chest wall and the beat can be felt between the fifth and sixth ribs on the chest's left side. When the heart is enlarged, the...

    In this work the authors propose the Valsalva maneuver as a diagnostic test in a group of patients shown, by anamnestic, physical, and instrumental criteria, to be affected by vasodepressor syncope. They studied the response of heart rate and baseline arterial pressure to the maneuver performed...

    Most studies on physiological effects of emotion-inducing images and sounds examine stimulus locked variables reflecting a state of at most a few seconds. We here aimed to induce longer lasting emotional states using blocks of repetitive visual, auditory, and bimodal stimuli corresponding to...

    The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that, as a general rule for health purposes, individuals should exercise at 40%-85% of their maximal oxygen uptakes. Moreover, it has been suggested that 55%-90% of the maximal heart rate may be used as an alternative estimate of these...

    The article presents a study on the effects of arterial oxygen desaturation during sleep and atrial fibrillation. It has been defined that atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia with associated complications of stroke and other adverse outcomes. The researchers conducted a population-based...
