Abstract

Attempts to model the behavior of two common electrophysiologic phenomena are described. An exponential function is used to model atrioventricular nodal conduction curves. Atrial fibrillation and simulated electrograms which might be recorded from it are modeled using a modification of the finite state model and electrogram calculations. In both instances, it is felt that the modeling should take place in parallel with experimental study of the same phenomena so that a conversation could take place between the model and the real world. In this way, the model and the direction of experimental observations evolve together.
