Example text

Thus, the K+ efflux will make the cy toplasm at the inside surface of the cell membrane more electrically negative (deficient in positively charged ions) and at the same time make the interstitial fluid just outside the cell membrane more electrically positive (rich in positively charged ions). K+ ion, being posi­ tively charged, is attracted to regions of electrical negativity. Therefore, when K+ diffuses out of a cell, it creates an electrical potential across the membrane that tends to attract it back into the cell.

States the relationship between electrical events of cardiac excitation and the P, QRS, and T waves, the PR and QT intervals, and the ST segment of the electrocardiogram. The student understands the factors that control the heart rate and action potential conduction in the heart: � States how diastolic potentials of pacemaker cells can be altered to produce changes in the heart rate. 22 CHARACTERISTICS OF CARDIAC MUSCLE CELLS I 23 � Describes how cardiac sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves alter the heart rate and conduction of cardiac action potentials.

Since the AV node delays the transfer of the cardiac excitation from the atria to the ventricles, atrial contraction can contribute to ventricular filling before the ventricles begin to contract. Note also that AV nodal cells have a faster spon­ taneous depolarization during the diastolic period than other cells of the heart except those of the SA node. For this reason, the AV node is sometimes referred to as a latent pacemaker, and in many pathological situations, it (rather than the SA node) controls the heart rhythm.
