Electrical Conduction System of the Heart

Summary Information: Electrical Conduction System of the Heart

Electrical Conduction System of the Heart: The electrical conduction system of the heart is located within the myocardium and activates the contracting and pumping action of the four chambers of the heart. In a healthy person the electrical conduction system stimulates the heart to pump and move blood in a regular, strong rhythm, which can be seen and monitored on an EKG or ECG. The electrical conduction system of the heart includes the sinoatrial node (SA), internodal pathways, atrioventricular node (AV), atrioventricular bundle, left bundle branch, right bundle branch, and Purkinje fibers.

Conditions that afflict the electrical conduction of the heart include cardiac arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation, tachydysrhythmias, bradydysrhythmias, heart blocks, myocardial infarction, and cardiac arrest.
