atrioventricular bundle
n : a bundle of modified heart muscle that transmits the cardiac impulse from the atrioventricular node to the ventricles causing them to contract [syn: bundle of his, atrioventricular trunk , truncus atrioventricularis]




The bundle of His is a collection of heart muscle cells specialized for electrical conduction that transmits the electrical impulses from the AV node (located between the atria and the ventricles) to the point of the apex of the fascicular branches via the bundle branches. The fascicular branches then lead to the Purkinje fibers, which provide electrical conduction to the ventricles, causing the cardiac muscle of the ventricles to contract at a paced interval .

Noun
1. a bundle of modified heart muscle that transmits the cardiac impulse from the atrioventricular node to the ventricles causing them to contract
(synonym) bundle of His, atrioventricular trunk, truncus atrioventricularis
(hypernym) cardiac muscle, heart muscle


= ATRIOVENTRICULAR BUNDLE
adjective
referring to the atria and ventricles
atrioventricular bundle or AV bundle or bundle of His = bundle of modified cardiac muscle which conducts impulses from the atrioventricular node to the septum and then divides to connect with the ventricles
atrioventricular groove = groove round the outside of the heart, showing the division between the atria and ventricles
atrioventricular node or AV node = mass of conducting tissue in the right atrium, which continues as the bundle of His and passes impulses from the atria to the ventricles
