The heart is a very efficient mechanical pump whose function is to controls the blood flow in the body. Two physical systems, namely mechanical for the pumping action and electrical for the control interact within the heart. Cardiac function can only be studied if both mechanical and electrical systems are considered. In particular, we are interested in the electromechanical control of the atrium pump function which is less studied then the electromechanical control of the ventricle pump function and none the less is a crucial factor in the development of atrial fibrillation.
