Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Thursday, 5 April 2018 is Atrial action potential.
In electrocardiography, the atrial action potential are action potentials that occur in the heart atrium. They are similar to ventricular action potential with the exception of having a more narrow phase 2 (plateau phase) due to a smaller calcium influx. Also, in comparison to the ventricular action potential, atrial action potentials have a more gradual repolarization period. This indicates that the atria's repolarization currents are not very large and they do not undergo a large repolarization peak.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:19 UTC on Thursday, 5 April 2018.
