To gain insights into cardiac arrhythmias, researchers have developed and employed various measurement techniques, such as electrocardiography, optical mapping, and patch clamping. However, there are no measurement methods that allow simultaneous recording of all cellular quantities, including intracellular ionic concentrations and gating states, that may play an important role in arrhythmia formation. To help address this shortcoming, we applied observability analysis, a method from control theory, to the Luo-Rudy dynamic (LRd) model of a cardiac ventricular myocyte. Read More
