Spiral wave teleportation theory offers new path to defibrillate hearts, terminate arrhythmias

A spiral wave of electrical activity in the heart can cause catastrophic consequences. One spiral wave creates tachycardia -- a heart rate that's too fast -- and multiple spirals cause a state of disorganized contraction known as fibrillation. Researchers from...
