Ventricular arrhythmias in the heart and the rapid heartbeat of ventricular tachycardia can lead to sudden cardiac death. This is a major health issue worldwide. What is needed is to develop a catheter based sensor and mapping approach which will provide the mechanisms of ventricular arrhythmia, and effectively prevent and treat the same, potentially save life.
