Source code second version Human Ventricular Cell model

The source code below corresponds with the model described in the following article:

Alternans and spiral breakup in a human ventricular tissue model
Ten Tusscher KHWJ, Panfilov AV
Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2006 (Epub 2006 Mar 24)
(pubmed location)

The source code consists of the following files:

  • contains the main time loop
  • Header.h: contains some function definitions
  • Variables.h: definition of object containing all state variables
  • creation of object, writing of state backups
  • computes a single time step

    And can be found here: source code together with an example makefile.

    The source code simulates the behaviour of a single human ventricular myocyte. The status of the cell can be switched from an epicardial to an endocardial or mid-myocardial cell type. The stimulation protocol applied to the cell can be switched from a dynamic restitution protocol to a S1S2 restitution protocol.

    For a description of how the program works please see the comments in the file.
