    recognize normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms‚ called dysrhythmias‚ is an essential nursing skill. • Four properties of cardiac cells (automaticity‚ excitability‚ conductivity‚ and contractility) enable the conduction system to start an electrical impulse‚ send it through the cardiac tissue‚ and stimulate the myocardial tissue to contract. • The autonomic nervous system plays an important role in the rate of impulse formation‚ the speed of conduction‚ and the strength of cardiac contraction.

    The cardiac pump is thrown out of gear‚ and the last of its vital energy is dissipated in a violent and prolonged turmoil of fruitless activity in the ventricular walls." He also describes the electrical stimulation of the heart in cases of "fatal syncope" in man. "A single induction shock readily causes a beat in an inhibited heart‚ and a regular series of induction shocks (for example‚ sixty or seventy per minute) gives a regular series of heartbeats at the same rate."
