A multi-scale computational investigation of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmias in acute ischaemia

Abstract:

Sudden cardiac death is one of the leading causes of mortality in the western world. One of the main factors is myocardial ischaemia, when there is a mismatch between blood demand and supply to the heart, which may lead to disturbed cardiac excitation patterns, known as arrhythmias. Ischaemia is a dynamic and complex process, which is characterised by many electrophysiological changes that vary through space and time. Ischaemia-induced arrhythmic mechanisms, and the safety and efficacy of ...
