Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Electrical Impulses"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Electrical impulses are applied to the heart to provoke and analyze a fast heart rate.

  3. Electrical impulses are transmitted from the sensory organ through the ganglia and into the brain via the sensory branch that enter the brain. (Web site)
  4. The electrical impulses are slowed as they pass through the conduction system, but all of them successfully reach the ventricles.
  5. The electrical impulses are controlled by a computer microchip attached to the patient's belt that synchronizes and distributes the signals. (Web site)

Movement

  1. The lines, boxes, movement and colors are then not just expressions of emotions in a socio-cultural context but are electrical impulses in the brain as well. (Web site)

Show

  1. During the study, doctors can give you controlled electrical impulses to show how your heart reacts. (Web site)

Energy

  1. Our sense organs translate physical energy from the environment into electrical impulses processed by the brain. (Web site)

High

  1. Electrical impulses begin high in the right atrium and travel through specialized pathways to the ventricles, delivering the signal to pump. (Web site)

Transmission

  1. This mineral also plays a critical role in the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart.

Messages

  1. The electrical impulses can help block pain messages to the brain. (Web site)

Helping

  1. They work by interfering with and helping to correct the electrical impulses in your heart. (Web site)

Help

  1. A pacemaker uses batteries to send electrical impulses to the heart to help it pump properly.

Change

  1. The shape will also change when there is abnormal conduction of electrical impulses within the ventricles. (Web site)

Record

  1. The QRS complex is a record of the movement of electrical impulses through the lower heart chambers (ventricles).

Light

  1. This chemical causes electrical impulses that are transmitted to the brain and interpreted as light. (Web site)

Area

  1. The electrodes are often placed on the area of pain or at a pressure point, creating a circuit of electrical impulses that travels along nerve fibers.
  2. The septal area is an important pleasure area of the brain, and laboratory animals eagerly press levers that send electrical impulses to this area. (Web site)

Blocked

  1. Bundle Branch Block is when electrical impulses are slowed or blocked as they travel through specialized conducting tissue in the ventricles.

Electrical Pathway

  1. Bundle Branch: Part of the electrical pathway of the heart that delivers electrical impulses to the ventricles of the heart. (Web site)

System

  1. Ethernet implements this through a system, were information is transmitted in the form of electrical impulses through twisted pair copper wire. (Web site)

Way Electrical Impulses

  1. This can affect the way electrical impulses spread in the heart. (Web site)

Stray Electrical Impulses

  1. Because scar tissue doesn't carry electricity, it interferes with stray electrical impulses that cause atrial fibrillation. (Web site)

Mild Electrical Impulses

  1. The generator sends mild electrical impulses via very thin wires or leads to nerves along the spinal cord.

Conducting Electrical Impulses

  1. These minerals play key roles in triggering and conducting electrical impulses in the heart.

Blocks Excess Electrical Impulses

  1. The procedure creates scar tissue that blocks excess electrical impulses from traveling through your heart. (Web site)

Sa Node

  1. The SA node sends electrical impulses at a certain rate, but your heart rate may still change depending on physical demands, stress, or hormonal factors. (Web site)

Abnormal Electrical Impulses

  1. This condition is caused by abnormal electrical impulses that control the heart. (Web site)

Minute

  1. In this most common arrhythmia in the U.S., electrical impulses make the atria beat extremely quickly - up to 400 beats a minute. (Web site)

Frequencies

  1. However, the frequencies and currents of the electrical impulses can be adjusted to help minimize these effects. (Web site)

Waves

  1. These waves are directed through the catheter to the specific heart tissue that is generating abnormal electrical impulses.

Pattern

  1. The ventricles beat in a regular pattern in response to electrical impulses from the atria. (Web site)

Body

  1. In a healthy brain, nerve cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses that work together to control the body. (Web site)
  2. A. The brain controls the body and its every move B. The brain controls the functioning of the body via electrical impulses.

Speed

  1. Beta-blockers slow the speed of electrical impulses through the heart.

Beating

  1. Ventricular tachycardia (VT). This fast, regular beating of the heart is caused by abnormal electrical impulses that start in the ventricles. (Web site)

Wires

  1. Once the pacemaker is surgically put in the brain, electrical impulses are sent from the stimulator through the wires and into the brain.
  2. Telephony The process of converting sounds into electrical impulses for transmission over a connecting medium such as wires, fiber optics or microwave.

Rapid

  1. Sudden death occurs when the electrical impulses in the diseased heart become rapid or chaotic or both.

Skin

  1. TENS delivers tiny electrical impulses to specific nerve pathways through small electrodes placed on your skin.
  2. NEUROSTIMULATION - Surgical placement of a medical device under the skin to send mild electrical impulses to the spinal cord.

Result

  1. Although the electrical impulses of AF occur at a high rate, most of them do not result in a heart beat. (Web site)
  2. Because electrical impulses can't reach the ventricles, an abnormally slow heartbeat may result. (Web site)

Arrhythmias

  1. An electrocardiogram (graphic record of electrical impulses made by the heart) is often used to diagnose arrhythmias.
  2. As a result, EP studies can help locate the specific areas heart tissue that give rise to the abnormal electrical impulses that cause arrhythmias. (Web site)

Sound Waves

  1. The sound waves bounce off the colon and other organs, and their echoes make electrical impulses that create a picture-called a sonogram-on a video monitor.

Epilepsy

  1. In about 50 to 70% of all cases of epilepsy, the cause of the abnormal electrical impulses is unknown.

Contract

  1. The electrical impulses that cause the heart to contract must follow a precise pathway for it to work properly. (Web site)

Catheter

  1. Each catheter is tipped with an electrode that maps the electrical impulses of the heart.
  2. The catheter may be used to inject dye into the heart and its arteries, and send electrical impulses to study irregular heartbeats. (Web site)
  3. A map of electrical impulses from your heart is sent through the catheter. (Web site)

Causing

  1. This machine sends electrical impulses to the heart, causing it to beat normally. (Web site)

Scarring

  1. A heart attack causes scarring of the heart tissue, which may make it so electrical impulses can't travel normally through your heart to make it beat.
  2. If the sinus node functions properly, sick sinus may be caused by scarring near the sinus node which undermines the movement of electrical impulses. (Web site)

Neurons

  1. Neurons are long, thin cells that transmit electrical impulses. (Web site)

Nervous System

  1. Skeletal muscle fibers are stimulated to contract by electrical impulses from the nervous system.

Neurotransmitters

  1. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that help carry electrical impulses along the nervous system.
  2. This one substance releases stored energy to generate neurotransmitters, transport proteins to cells, and aid in conducting electrical impulses.

Signals

  1. Although it sends out electrical impulses to keep the heart beating, the transmission of the signals is much slower, leading to a slower heart rate. (Web site)

Tachycardia

  1. Because scar tissue doesn't conduct electricity, it interferes with stray electrical impulses that cause some types of tachycardia. (Web site)

Supraventricular Tachycardia

  1. An episode of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) occurs when abnormal electrical impulses suddenly start in the upper chambers of the heart. (Web site)
  2. Electrical impulses around the atriventricular node cause supraventricular tachycardia, which may beat as fast as 280 beats per minute.
