What is the rate of incidence for lung cancer?
Penn Medicine answered
How do electrical impulses affect the heart?
Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute answeredThe heart's “electrical system” powers the heartbeat. If the electrical impulses that travel through the heart are abnormal or disrupted, the heart's chambers do not fill and contract properly. They may pump blood before they are filled adequately.
How does my heart know when to beat?
Electrical impulses through the heart muscle cause the heart to beat. The impulse starts in the right atrium and then is carried through the heart chambers to the right and left ventricles. When this happens, a heartbeat or pulse occurs. There is a one-to-one relationship between the beating of the atrium and the beating of the ventricles. Usually, the heart beats 60 to 80 times a minute.
