”Diseases of the heart are primarily treated by cardiologists“
I'm really not too sure about this statement, currently in the lead. At least in my neck of the woods, I'd say general practitioners carry a fair share of the load. In addition cardiothoracic surgeons are involved in a lot of surgical management, and intensivists in the management of cardiac arrest and tamponade. Cardiologists are indeed specialists of the heart, but I am not sure if they are the ones that 'primarily' treat disease. Perhaps a better wording would be:
I came here looking for some detail on the evolution of the heart, how it came about, what drove the development, and so on, but there's not a lot in the article on that. Maybe something that could be added. Thanks! — Amakuru (talk) 07:13, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I was surpised and I do not agree with the removal of my changes: do you prefer to have the notes with all those mistakes, rather than appreciate the correction of a user in it.wiki led to the recognition of voice quality? I'm very sorry, but I do not understand at all your behavior, making collaboration difficult. Best regards--Geoide (talk) 19:54, 14 December 2015 (UTC)
Is there any reason that sinoatrial node has a separate section from electrical conduction section - info on sa node is repeated from conduction, and other info in sa node section is better placed in conduction ? --Iztwoz (talk) 21:43, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Not an ideal title. However I was trying to group together information about how a cardiac action potential is generated. I'm not sure what section this should go it. I guess a section "Creation of a heartbeat". I put it in heart rate because it is related to the heartrate rather than conduction of an existing action potential. I hope that makes sense... what are your thoughts? --Tom (LT) (talk) 07:50, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
I still think that SA node info would be better placed in elect conduction. Influences could be changed to heart rate. Also think that acton potential belongs to elect conduction. Also, I've been looking through ref for info on 'without ....innervation HR would be 100bpm can find nothing? Other heart related pages make no mention of this or I should say I cannot find any - info from cardiovascular centres says innervation only occurs when stimulated. Any light available? --Iztwoz (talk) 21:24, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
