Introduction of Research
Outline of Heart Simulator 4/6

The electrical stimulation from the Purkinje fibers depolarizes the myocardium at the Purkinje-myocardial junction sites, and the excitation then propagates to neighboring cells. In this simulator, tens of millions of cells are electrically connected each other to reproduce the excitation propagation. Concomitantly, weak electrical currents flow out from the heart to the chest wall to create the body surface potential. The potential difference can be recorded as the electrocardiogram routinely used in clinical practice.
