Phase 2: effect of atmospheric pollutants on atrial electrical activity.study in a 3d model of the human atrium

Project Details

Description

"air pollution increases the risk of mortality due to cardiovascular disease, atrial arrhythmias are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and one of the pathologies that generates the most waste in health systems." the city of medellín and the metropolitan area of ??valle de aburra lives today an epidemic of mortality due to diseases associated with environmental pollution "

Objective

"study the effects of medellín air pollutants on electrical activity and arrhythmic episodes, using a 3d model of the human atrium"

Expected results

"the development of this work will contribute to the generation of new knowledge related to a better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms by which contaminants present in the atmosphere of medellín, can increase the risk of atrial arrhythmias, which would improve the techniques of prevention of said pathologies.
