Abstract

Ventricular fibrillation (VF) is one of the most serious malignant arrhymias usually resulted from immediate degeneration of ventricular tachycardia (VT). In order to analyze the nonlinear dynamics of cardiac micro-mechanism under VT and VF rhythm, at the cellular level, myocardial cell action potentials (APs) are investigated under different rhythm, normal sinus rhythm, VT and VF. On the basis of nonlinear chaotic theory and symbolic dynamics, we forwarded some new definitions, complexity rate, etc, and obtained some useful properties for cellular electrophysiological analysis. The results of the experiments and computation show that the myocardial cellular signals under VT and VF rhythm are different kinds of chaotic signals that the cardiac chaos attractor under VF is higher than that under VT The analytical complexity theory has a good promising in the clinical application.
