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 the Georgia Institute of Technology offer a new method to disrupt spiral waves that uses less energy and that may be less painful than traditional defibrillation.
