Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is the most common disorder of the heart rhythms. There are about 2.3 million people in United States and 4.5 million people in the European Union with AF [Go et.al, 2001]. It is also one of the factors that may contribute to mortality and morbidity. Researchers who apply spectral techniques show that certain areas of the atria can have higher activation frequencies than other areas. Frequency analysis is used to measure changes in Dominant Frequency (DF). We access the electrical propagation inside the atria by spectrogram plotting and examining the effect of isoprenaline and atropine on frequency changes.
