After 30 min of waiting, neither APCs nor ATs were inducible; in addition, electrical conduction into and out of the RAA was shown, which indicated no electrical isolation of the RAA.
A very sudden death resulting in the dog passing in just a few minutes could suggest an electrical conduction problem in the heart.
One is because valves are intracardiac (within the heart) and are in close proximity to the electrical conduction system, and two, because valve patients tend to have multiple surgeries, which also increase the rate of indications for pacemakers.
The composites, having PTC behavior, are mainly used as over current protectors, self-controlled heaters, and pyroelectric sensors [6, 7]; whereas, the composites, exhibiting NTC behavior, are used as antistatic and EMI shielding materials [8], Yasin and his coworkers studied the electrical conduction behavior of epoxy/ carbon fiber composites (temperature range 25-275 K).
A nerve conduction study (NCS) is a test commonly used to assess the function, particularly the capacity of electrical conduction of motor and sensory impulses in nerves in human being.
In the heart, calcification can disrupt electrical conduction and lead to heart blocks.
The nature of electrical conduction in nanoscale materials can differ vastly from regular, macroscale metallic structures, which have countless free electrons forming the current, thus making any effect by a single electron negligible.
Their topics include analog front-end and telemetry systems, energy management integrated circuits for wireless power transmission, the reliability and security of implantable and wearable medical devices, electrodes for the electrical conduction block of the peripheral nerve, and implantable imaging systems for the automated monitoring of internal organs.
An ECG looks at the electrical conduction pathways around the heart.
When there is a block in the electrical conduction between nodes in the heart, the heart rate becomes slow and if there is an extra path connecting the different chambers in the heart (which is abnormal), this can make the heart beat faster than normal.
The detection step is formed by a simple measurement of the electrical conduction between the electrodes.
Bisphenol A (BPA) may slow electrical conduction in the heart, according to a 2014 laboratory experiment.
