...y, including average heart rates of about 70 to 80 beats per minute, are similar to humans. In the current study, researchers used radiofrequency ablation to remove the SA nodes in pigs' hearts. This is the same minimally invasive technique cardiologists use in clinics to destroy the heart cells that ca...

Study: Paramedics save more lives when they don't follow the rules

...a condition in which the heart quivers rather than beats but can be shocked back into normal beat with a defibrillator.

In addition to maintaining the heart, the devices also collect heartbeat-by-heartbeat data that can be downloaded from the device and entered into a computer. One use of the data in this trial was to create a "footprint," or visual repr...
