Abstract

This paper attempts to verify experimentally the results of a paper by Greene and Clark (1974) on the modelling of cardiac augmentor function. Three separate stimulation protocols are utilised in this study and model and experimental results are shown to agree.

Sommaire

Cet écrit tente à vérifier par expérimentation les résultats d'un écrit fait par Messrs. Greene et Clark (1974), qui a trait au façonnement de la jonction cardiaque d'augmentation. Trois différents protocoles de stimulation sont utilisés dans cette étude, et on démontre que les résultats obtenus des modèles et des expériences s'accordent.

Zusammenfassung

Diese Arbeit macht' den Versuch, die Ergebnisse einer Arbeit von Greene und Clark (1974) experimentell durch Modellieren der Verstärkerverbindung des Herzens zu überprüfen. Bei dieser Untersuchung werden 3 getrennte Stimulationsprotokolle verwendet, und es zeigt sich, daß Modell und experimentelle Ergebnisse übereinstimmen.
