Atlas of Human Anatomy: Volume I Osteology · Arthrology and Syndesmology Myology

AFTER ten years' practise the 1st version of our Atlas of Human Anatomy used to be released among 1946 and 1951. Our adventure enabled us to enhance all of the next variants and the current one has additionally been completely revised and enlarged to permit the inclusion of extra instructive illus­ trations.

Chemically Induced Magnetic Polarization: Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute held at Sogesta, Urbino, Italy, April 17–30, 1977

Magnetic resonance has always been in a position to shock with its skill to show new phenomena. simply while it sounds as if to be getting into a quiet heart age it bursts into task with a few new manifestation of its versatility. This occurred many years in the past, while observations on anomalous intensities have been checked out extra heavily, and the pursuit of motives and additional facts laid the principles of the themes taken care of during this quantity.

Turbulent activity will follow, with incoordinate contraction of the atria, lack of effective mechanical activity, and an irregular ventricular response. Similar chaotic behaviour follows the application of aconitine (Scherf 1947). A rapidly firing focus discharges at a frequency which the atria cannot follow. Induced atrial fibrillation may be modified by autonomic action or drugs that affect the refractory period of the atrial myocardium, but clearly no drug will terminate the fibrillation as long as the electrical stimulation is applied or the aconitine focus continues to fire (Moe 1968).

Induced atrial fibrillation may be modified by autonomic action or drugs that affect the refractory period of the atrial myocardium, but clearly no drug will terminate the fibrillation as long as the electrical stimulation is applied or the aconitine focus continues to fire (Moe 1968). Doubts have been expressed about the validity of using induced atrial fibrillation as a model for the real thing (Strackee et al. 1971; Dreifus and Mazgalev 1988). The Mapping of Atrial Flutter and Fibrillation: The Essential Distinction Between Them The surface electrocardiogram during atrial flutter shows a regular saw-tooth appearance of the baseline, with about 300 flutter waves per minute.

This may be achieved by direct current cardioversion which simultaneously depolarises the whole heart with an electric shock so that refractory periods of different areas of the atria are once more in step with each other. Experimentally, or in electrophysiological studies, atrial fibrillation may be induced by high-frequency stimulation of one or other atria (Haft et al. 1968; Wyndham et al. 1977; Whittington et al. 1979; Brignole et al. 1986); a stimulation frequency of 50 Hz is commonly used.
