Bio-electric potential field and current source distribution about feasible automatic volume conduction system

Nzerem Francis Egenti, Ugorji Hycinth Chimezie

Abstract


Bioelectric sources are the bastion of action potentials that pervade abutting cells and their regions. Such sources are characterized by impressed current density which originate from a nonelectrical source of energy. In the CCS under consideration current density emanates from the movement of ions by reason of concentration gradient, which is the main cause of the creation of an electric field. The pertinent issue is the determination of the quantity of ionic current that exits a source to a sink, which in effect drives a potential field in a dipole environment. Therefore, the quantity of current that transmits through dipoles and the concomitant potential field about the cardiac conduction system were sought. The equation satisfying the potential field in the region of interest was found by solving Laplace’s equation in cylindrical coordinate. It is hoped that a good knowledge of the quantity of current and the potential field may qualitatively inform cardiac procedures.
