Ionotrophy, chronotrophy, dromotrophy, lusirophy and bathmotrophy

The heart is amazing.. Just like we have 5 senses, theheart has 5 properties < 3

They are rhythmicity, conductivity, excitiability, contractility and relaxation. These properties have been given fancy names too!

Inotropy - The ability to contract

Chronotropy - The ability to initiate an electrical impulse

Dromotropy - The ability to conduct an electrical impulse

Bathmotropy - The ability to respond to stimulation

Lusitropy - The ability to relax

These five terms are described as the five fundamental properties of the heart.

That's all!

Love,
