The Cardiovascular System: Cardiac Action Potential 1. How do the waves of depolarization, generated by the autorhythmic cells spread to the muscle cells? _____________________. 2. Depolarizing current from the autorhythmic cells causes the ventricular muscle cells to ____________. 3. Name the 3 channels essential for generating an action potential and indicate which way the ions move (circle the correct one): a. ______________ channels into or out of b. ______________ channels into or out of c. ______________ channels into or out of 4. If the sodium channel or the fast calcium channels are open, the inside of the cell would be relatively more ____________. 5. The pacemaker potential is due to a/an (decreased or increased) efflux of ____ ions compared to a normal influx of ____ ions. 6. Threshold for the action potential in the SA Node is at ____ mV. What channels open, causing depolarization? _________________ 7. The reversal of membrane potential causes the _____ channels to open, causing the _________________
