    The sinoatrial node, the pacemaker of the heart, is a structurally and functionally complex and heterogeneous structure. Histology, immunohistochemistry, electrophysiology and mathematical modeling of the sinoatrial node are reviewed to reveal the structure-function relationships of the sinoatrial node. The sinoatrial node (SA node): Known as the heart's "pacemaker", this node fires at regular intervals, causing the heart to beat. The atrioventricular node (AV node): the electrical "relay station" between the upper and lower heart chambers. The bundle of His (also known as the atrioventricular bundle): muscle fibers that conduct the electrical impulses that regulate heartbeat.

    The heart’s activity is dependent on the electrical impulses from the sinoatrial (SA) node and atrioventricular (AV) node, which form the intrinsic conduction system of the heart. The SA and AV nodes act as a pacemaker for the heart, determining the rate at which it beats, even without signals from the larger nervous system of the human body. and connects the AV node with the two bundle branches. If the SA node becomes diseased or fails to function properly, the bundle of His has pacemaker cells that are capable of discharging at an intrinsic rate of beats per minute. The AV node and the bundle of His are referred to collectively as the AV .

Sinoatrial Node. The sinoatrial (SA) node (Fig. ) is a spindle-shaped structure composed of highly specialized cells located in the right atrial sulcus terminalis, which is lateral to the junction of the superior vena cava (SVC) and the right atrium.

Box summarizes the anatomy of the cardiac pacemaker and conduction system. Internodal. Similar to the sinoatrial node, AVN has the potential for pacemaker activity; however, there are significant differences between the activities of the two nodes.

The normal AVN firing rate is 20–60 bpm compared with the 60– bpm of the sinoatrial node. 5 One unique characteristic of pacemaker cells in the sinoatrial node and AVN is the Cited by: 7. The sinoatrial node, also referred to as the pacemaker of the heart, coordinates heart contractions.

Located in the upper wall of the right atrium, it generates nerve impulses that travel throughout the heart wall causing both atria to contract.

The SA node is regulated by the autonomic nerves of the peripheral nervous mpathetic and sympathetic autonomic nerves send. Figure 1. The cardiac cycle starts when cells in the sinoatrial node discharge an action potential that spreads as an electrical impulse through the atria and – via the atrioventricular node – to the ventricles.

As the impulse spreads through the myocardium, it activates the cells which respond by contracting. The sinoatrial node (SAN) is the normal pacemaker of the heart and SAN dysfunction (SND) is common, but until recently the pathophysiology was incompletely understood.

Dual-chamber pacemakers for symptomatic bradycardia due to sick sinus syndrome and/or atrioventricular block. Technology Appraisal Pedroni P, et al. Electrophysiology. Introduction. The sinoatrial node (SAN), located in the right atrium, serves as the primary site for initiation of the normal heartbeat (sinus rhythm) (Figure (Figure1).

1).Together with the cardiac conduction system [the atrioventricular node (AVN) and the His–Purkinje system], the SAN is responsible for orchestrating the precise sequence of electrical events underlying the normal heart.

Similarly, optical imaging, or mapping, using fluorescent, voltage sensitive dyes has enabled the careful study of the sinoatrial (SA) and atrioventricular (AV) nodes, and improved our understanding of how anatomic structure is related to electrophysiological function.

The atrioventricular (AV) node is a more organized area of conduction in the right atrium near the crux of the heart. More well-defined than the sinus node, the compact AV node is located in the posterior portion of the interatrial septum just anterior to the tricuspid valve and (in most cases) provides a singular conduction channel into the.

Abstract. Intrinsic properties of the human sinoatrial (SA) node have been shown to decline with age. In the present study we aimed at investigating the underlying mechanisms of age-dependent changes in intrinsic cycle length and sinoatrial conduction time.

The origin of the SA node artery was not related to coronary arterial dominance. The atrioventricular (AV) node artery was the first and longest inferior septal perforating branch of the right (90%) or left (10%) coronary artery, arising from the U- or V-shaped segment of. Sinus Node.

The sinoatrial node (SAN; Figure ) is a spindle-shaped structure composed of highly specialized cells located in the right atrial sulcus terminalis, lateral to the junction of the superior vena cava (SVC) and the right atr11 (see Box for a summary of the anatomy of the cardiac pacemaker and conduction system).

Three cell types have been identified in the SAN. The normal pattern of excitation begins with the spontaneous appearance of action potentials in the Sinoatrial node (SAN), which spontaneously generates action potentials at a frequency of per minute.

These action potentials spread rapidly through the left and right atria, and into the upper region of the atrioventricular node (AVN. Methods were devised for the selective alteration of parasympathetic control over the sinoatrial (SA) or the atrioventricular (AV) node in anesthetized, thoracotomized mongrel dogs.

Two epicardial sites were located at which parasympathetic nerve fibers enroute to the SA or the AV node. The SA (sinoatrial) node generates an electrical signal that causes the upper heart chambers (atria) to contract.

The signal then passes through the AV (atrioventricular) node to the lower heart chambers (ventricles), causing them to contract, or pump. The SA node is considered the pacemaker of the heart.

Abstract. The aim of the study was to develop a three-dimensional (3D) anatomically-detailed model of the rabbit right atrium containing the sinoatrial and atrioventricular nodes to study the electrophysiology of the nodes.

Electrophysiology studies and arrhythmia ablation can be tricky to report due to the number of bundled and add-on codes.

an electrical impulse is set off from the sinoatrial (SA) node. This electrical impulse then travels to both atria and causes them to contract. There is a small delay before the impulse reaches the atrioventricular (AV. A sinoatrial block is a disorder in the normal rhythm of the heart, known as a heart block, that is initiated in the sinoatrial initial action impulse in a heart is usually formed in the sinoatrial node (SA node) and carried through the atria, down the internodal atrial pathways to the atrioventricular node (AV) node.

In normal conduction, the impulse would travel across the bundle of.The AV node of the dog is smaller than that of humans, but has a longer penetrating bundle of His. 27 Some authors 28 interpret this to mean that a portion of the AV node of the dog lies within the CFB.

In the rabbit, other authors 29 describe part of the bundle of His as though it formed part of the AV node, but this is a mistake (Figures 4a-d.The sinoatrial node (also known as the SA node or the sinus node) is a group of cells located in the wall of the right atrium of the heart.

These cells have the ability to spontaneously produce an electrical impulse (action potential; see below for more details), that travels through the heart via the electrical conduction system (see figure 1) causing it to contract.
