Your Heart’s Nerve Conduction
Your heart’s electrical system allow your heart to pump blood efficiently throughout your body. For each heart beat, the contraction of the heart muscle is initiated by electrical signals to the heart muscle:
Every single heart beat requires an electrical impulse to initiate it.The heart contains special tissue that produces and sends electrical impulses to the heart muscle. It is these impulses that trigger the heart to contract. Each time the heart beats, it sends out an electric-like signal. The heart’s electrical signals can be measured with an EKG.
