The excitation wave spreading along epicardium in the area of the pulmonary veins ostia in the left atrium at 36-37[degrees]C and when cooling to 32[degrees]C was studied by the method of electrocardiochronotopography in rabbit of Chinchilla species, five months age.
The moment of arrival the excitation wave in each point of the lead was defined by the minimum of the first derivative of the potential on time.
At the temperature of 36[degrees]C and 35[degrees]C the excitation wave in the epicardium spreads from interatrial septum to the left atrium, depolarizing first the upper part of the dorsal side in ostia of the pulmonary veins in the left atrium (Fig.
At 32[degrees]C the excitation wave changes its direction and spreads from interatrial septum in the direction of the left auricle and to the base of the atrium, time of activation increases to 31 ms (Fig.
