Abstract

The dependence of some ECG characteristics on the excitation threshold was studied by mathematical modeling of cardiac arrhythmia in a 2D homogeneous excitable medium. It is shown that monomorphic tachycardias can arise both at elevated and at lowered excitability but the ECG characteristics in these cases are different.
