BME 59500/ 3 Cr.
This course will introduce the basic principles of cardiac generated bioelectricity and will be examined at the cellular, extracellular, and body surface levels. The generation of abnormal cardiac rhythms and the relevant electro-therapies will be emphasized. These include the principles of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators as well as the tools used in cardiac ablation therapy, e.g., cardiac mapping and ablative energy sources. Modern signal processing methods applied to electrocardiography will also be presented.
