Original Research: Critical Volume of Human Myocardium Necessary to Maintain Ventricular Fibrillation

My co-authored research article titled – Critical Volume of Human Myocardium Necessary to Maintain Ventricular Fibrillation was published in the peer review journal – Circulation. Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology. The article is available in print, in the December 2018 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the manuscript documents evidence using donor human hearts that ventricular arrhythmias (e.g., ventricular fibrillation) is only sustained if the cardiac tissue volume exceeds the cardiac wavelength volume . The article can be accessed here

Original Research – PFEIFER: Preprocessing Framework for Electrograms Intermittently Fiducialized from Experimental Recordings

My co-authored research article titled – PFEIFER: Preprocessing Framework for Electrograms Intermittently Fiducialized from Experimental Recordings was published in the peer review journal – Open Source Software. The article is available in print, in the December 2018 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the manuscript documents a Preprocessing Framework for Electrograms Intermittently Fiducialized from Experimental Recordings (PFEIFER) in the form of a MATLAB Graphical User Interface designed to process bioelectric signals acquired from experiments The article can be accessed here

Editorial – Irreversible electroporation: Proceed with caution

My co-authored editorial titled – Irreversible electroporation: Proceed with caution  was accepted for published in the peer review journal – Heart Rhythm. The article is available in print, in the December 2018 issue of the journal.

Briefly, the editorial provides a brief commentary on the use of electroporation (a biological phenomenon characterized by disruption of lipid membrane and creation of nano pores in the cell membrane, resulting from the delivery of high-voltage electrical pulses, such as during defibrillation) as a tumor ablation technique.
