Electrical Conduction System of the Heart | Heart Consult

The heart is a pump made of muscle tissue. Its pumping action is regulated by electrical impulses.
Electrical conductivity is defined as the property used to describe how well materials allow electrons to flow, and the degree to which a specific material conducts electricity., Electrical conductivity is calculated as the ratio of the current density in the material to the electric field that causes the flow of current.

A Beginners Guide to Normal Heart Function, ..


Thankfully we don't need to plug ourselves in to the mains, the heart is able to create it's own electrical impulses and control the route the impulses take via a specialised conduction pathway.

Sometimes the electrical signal from the heart's upper chambers (atria) to lower chambers (ventricles) is impaired or doesn't transmit. There are several degrees of heart block. .


Rhythm vs. Conduction
Your heart’s rhythm is its pace or beat. Conduction is the progression of electrical impulses through the heart which cause the heart to beat. You can have a conduction disorder without having an arrhythmia, but some arrhythmias arise from conduction disorders.
