In this study we applied both linear and nonlinear spatial correlation measures to characterize epicardial activation patterns of sustained atrial fibrillation in instrumented conscious goats. It was investigated if nonlinearity was involved in the spatial coupling of atrial regions and to what extent fibrillation was organized in the experimental model of sustained atrial fibrillation (AF) in instrumented goats. Data were collected in five goats during experiments to convert AF by continuous infusion of cibenzoline. Spatial organization during AF was quantified with the linear spatial cross correlation function and the nonlinear spatial cross redundancy which was calculated using the Grassberger-Procaccia correlation integral. Two different types of correlation were evaluated to distinguish simultaneous interaction from non-simultaneous interaction, for instance resulting from propagation of fibrillation waves. The nonlinear association length and the linear correlation length were estimated along the principal axes of iso-correlation contours in two-dimensional correlation maps of the nonlinear spatial redundancy and the linear spatial correlation function, respectively. To quantitatively assess the degree of nonlinearity, th...Continue Reading

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
