Math model to monitor heartbeat health

Sunday February 19, 2012 08:11:16 PM, IANS

London: Scientists have developed a math model to peer into the heart's cellular mechanism governing its beats to ensure that the organ stays healthy.

The heart relies on 'high performance' atrial cells, found deep within its smaller chambers or atria, when it needs to work harder.

And atrial cells depend on specific calcium concentrations for optimal functioning, which the math model will now measure, the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reports.

This breakthrough takes scientists into a world of cellular activity currently beyond the scope of any imaging technology, according to a Nottingham University statement.

Rüdiger Thul, lecturer in applied math at the Nottingham, who conducted the study, said: "This has the potential to point to new treatments for heart disease and irregular heartbeat such as atrial fibrillation, which can lead to thrombosis and stroke."
