Abstract

Animal models have made substantial contributions to the understanding of basic electrophysiologic principies and arrhythmia mechanisms, as well as to the deveJopment of antiarrhythmic drugs, devices and procedures. The field of clinical electrophysiology has progressed very dramatically and there have also been advances in the basic laboratory that bear relevance In the methods, design and inferpretafion of clinical electrophysioiogic testing, and to the application of new, potential antiarrhythmic interventions.
