Finding arrhythmias in rodents can be tedious, thrilling, and controversial.
During the 2023 Society of Toxicology (SOT) conference in Nashville, Dr. Alex Carll discussed rodent ECG morphology and physiologic vs. pathologic arrhythmias in mice and rats.
This article summarizes some of the key points that were presented during the event and includes the video recording of the talk.
Dr. Alex Carll is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physiology and Center for Cardiometabolic Science at the University of Louisville, KY, USA.
He studies the mechanisms by which inhaled toxins impair cardiac conduction and contraction, in both rodents and humans, with particular interest in the autonomic nervous system’s role. He studies the impacts of multiple inhaled agents, including e-cigarette aerosols, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter from many sources (cars, urban atmospheres, and consumer products).
