Paper Abstract

Recent theoretical models predict specific spatial distribution of cardiac transmembrane potentials (Vm) around and between the stimulating electrodes during electrical stimulation or defibrillation. Therefore it is desirable to measure the coupling between applied current and Vm during and following the time span of the stimulus pulse. Confounding electrical artifacts can be circumvented through the use of optical recordings.
