  2. The major types of cardiac muscle: • Atrial muscle • Ventricular muscle • Specialized excitatory and conductive muscle Contractile cells (收缩细胞) Autorhythmic cells (自律细胞)

  3. Conducting system of the heart

  4. Cardiac muscle

  5. Sequence of cardiac excitation The Bundle of His and other parts of the conducting system deliver the excitation to the apex of the heart so that ventricular contraction occurs in an upward sweep. The sinoatrial node is the heart’s pacemaker because it initiates each wave of excitation with atrial contraction.

  6. General process of excitation and contraction of cardiac muscle • Initiation of action potentials in sinoatrial node • Conduction of action potentials along specialized conductive system • Excitation-contraction coupling • Muscle contraction

  7. Transmembrane potentials recorded in different heart regions

  8. Transmembrane potential of ventricular cells and its ionic mechanisms Resting Potential: -90 mV Action Potential • Phase 0: Depolarization • Phase 1: Early phase of rapid repolarization • Phase 2: Plateau(平台期) • Phase 3: Late phase of rapid repolarization • Phase 4: Resting phase

  9. Ionic mechanisms • Resting potential • K+ equilibrium potential • Na+-inward background current • Electrogenic Na+-K+ pump

  10. The action potential of a myocardial pumping cell. • Phase 0 • Threshold potential (-70mV) • Opening of fast Na+ channel • Regenerative cycle(再生性循环)

  11. Phase 1 • Transient outward current, Ito K+ current • activated at –20 mV • opening for 5~10 ms

  12. Phase 2 Inward current Outward current (Ca2+ & Na+) (K+ current)

  13. Types of Ca2+ channels in cardiac cells: • (1) L-type (long-lasting) (Nowycky, 1985) • (2) T-type (transient) (Nowycky, 1985)

  14. Ca2+ channels • L-type T-type Duration of current long-lasting transient Activation kinetics slower faster Inactivation kinetics slower faster Threshold high (-35mV) Low (-60mV) cAMP/cGMP-regulated Yes No Phosphorylation-regulated Yes No Openers Bay-K-8644 - Blockers varapamil Tetramethrin nifedipine, diltiazem Ni2+ Inactivation by [Ca2+]i Yes slight Patch-clamp recording run-down relatively stable

  15. Outward current (K+ current): • (1) inward rectifier K+ current (IK1) • (2) delayed rectifier K+ current (IK)

  16. Phase 3 Inactivation of Ca2+ channel Outward K+ current dominates IK: Progressively increased IK1: Regenerative K+ Outward Current

  17. Phase 4 Na+-Ca2+ exchange Sarcolemmal Ca2+ pump SR Ca2+ pump Na+-K+ pump

  18. a, The key ion channels (and an electrogenic transporter) in cardiac cells. K+ channels (green) mediate K+ efflux from the cell; Na+ channels (purple) and Ca2+ channels (yellow) mediate Na+ and Ca2+ influx, respectively. The Na+/Ca2+ exchanger (red) is electrogenic, as it transports three Na+ ions for each Ca2+ ion across the surface membrane. b, Ionic currents and genes underlying the cardiac action potential. Top, depolarizing currents as functions of time, and their corresponding genes; centre, a ventricular action potential; bottom, repolarizing currents and their corresponding genes.

  39. 0.04 sec • ECG interpretation • Measurements • Rhythm analysis • Conduction analysis • Waveform description • Comparison with previous ECG (if any) Normal ECG

  40. P wave: the sequential depolarization of the right and left atria • QRS complex: right and left ventricular depolarization • ST-T wave: ventricular repolarization • U wave: origin for this wave is not clear - but probably represents "afterdepolarizations" in the ventricles

  41. PR interval: time interval from onset of atrial depolarization (P wave) to onset of ventricular depolarization (QRS complex) • QT interval: duration of ventricular depolarization and repolarization • ST segment: the time period between the end of the QRS complex and the beginning of the T wave,  during which each myocyte is in the plateau phase (phase 2) of the action potential 

  42. Normal Partial block Complete block

  43. Physiological properties of cardiac cells • Excitability • Autorhythmicity • Conductivity • Contractility Electrophysiological properties (电生理特性) Mechanical property (机械特性)

  44. Excitability(兴奋性) • Factors affecting excitability • Resting potential • Threshold potential • Status of Na+ or Ca2+ channels

  45. Hyperkalemia(高钾血症) • The QRS complexes may widen so that they merge with the T waves, resulting in a “sine wave” appearance. The ST segments disappear when the serum potassium level reaches 6 mEq/L and the T waves typically become tall and peaked at this same range. The P waves begin to flatten out and widen when a patient‘s serum potassium level reaches about 6.5 mEq/L; this effect tends to disappear when levels reach 7-9 mEq/L. Sinus arrest may occur when the serum potassium level reaches about 7.5 mEq/L, and cardiac standstill or ventricular fibrillation may occur when serum levels reach 10 to 12 mEq/L.
