Where is the starting point of the electric pathway of the heart?
When the electrical pulse leaves the SA node it travels to the ________ causing them to contract together. This takes ___ seconds
Left and right Atria
Why is there a slight delay as the impulse travels to the AV node?
to allow the ventricles to fill with blood.
Where does the electric pulse go after leaving the AV node?
the Bundle of His
Where does the Bundle of His travel through?
the apex of the heart
After the impulse goes to the Bundle of His it __
__ into the left and right _
_ where it rapidly spreads using the _
of the right and left
