The Zero of Potential of the Electric Field Produced by the Heart Beat: The Problem with Reference to Homogeneous Volume Conductors
The acceptable zeros of the potential of the electrical fields produced by certain dipole distributions in homogeneous volume conductors is discussed. A bridge circuit is described by which a solution of the three-arm and the four-arm central terminals of Wilson may be solved for a zero of potential of the field produced by an arbitrary distribution of dipoles in a homogeneous volume conductor. An acceptable zero of potential for evaluation of the potentials in a locus on the "body" surface distant from the heart is described.
