Simulation of a cardiac cell. Part II: Applications

Rossany Roche, Rosalba Lamanna, Marisol Delgado, François Rocaries, Yskandar Hamam, Françoise Pecker


A simulator of the cardiac cell (E-C coupling process) is developed in this work, which solves the electro-chemical model of the cell proposed by Roche et al. (2004). It also contains other mathematical models as well, namely, those by Tang & Othmer (1994) and Fox et al. (2001), for comparison purposes. The simulator allows the modification of the model parameters in correspondence with the different cellular elements, to emulate cells of different species or cells under different conditions. The paper also contains an application of the simulator for testing the sensitivity of the E-C process to drugs and inhibitors, showing its intended use as a research tool in experiment design and cardiac pathology treatment.
