The SA node and the AV node

SA node:
Sino-Atrial node is located at the junction of superior vena cava with right atrium, Just deep to the epicardium, near the sulcus terminalis. The SA node is made of modified cardiac muscle that has fewer strations and indistinct boundaries. These cells are small round with few organelles which are connected by gap junctions. These cells are called P cells (pacemaker cells). SA node is the fastest discharging part of the myocardium (70 to 80/min)

Blood supply of SA node- Right coronary artery supplies the SA node in 65% of the cases.
Nerve supply- SA node develops from the structures on the right side of the embryo, therefore SA node is supplied by Right vagus nerve and Right sympathetics. Noradrenergic nerve fibers are epicardial while vagal fibers are endocardial.

AV node:
Atrio-ventricular node is located in the right postero-infero region of the interatrial septum near the opening of coronary sinus. There are 3 bundles of fibers that connect the SA node with the AV node. Namely Anterior internodal tract of Bachman, Middle internodal tract of Winckebach and Posterior internodal tract of Thorel.
Blood supply- Right coronary artery.
Nerver supply- AV node develops from structures in the left side of the enbryo. Therefore it is supplied by Left vagus and left sympathetics.

The depolarization of SA and AV nodes depends on calcium channels rather than on Sodium channels. Rate of impulse generation in decreasing order- SA node> AV node (40 tp 60/min)> Bundle of His (40/min)> Purkinjee fibers (24/min).

Magnetism in the Unvaccinated: The 'Magneto'-Spike Protein and Magnetogenetics.

Reports of covid19 unvaccinated people in close contact with the vaccinated people becoming 'magnetized' has been puzzling lot of independent researchers, doctors and scientists. We know that the vaccinated people shed spike proteins . But Fe3O4 based Nanoparticles do not shed, neither do they replicate and infect/transmit other people, like the spike proteins do. These Nanoparticles get deposited into brain and neural tissue as we discussed earlier . Looking at this strange phenomenon, it appears like something 'magnetic' is  Replicating - Some vaccinated people are having their whole body 'magnetized' starting from the injection site. And Transmitting : from the vaccinated people to unvaccinated people who are in close contact with them. It looks like something 'Magnetic' is being added to the Covid19 viral Spike Protein genome, which is being injected through the DNA Vector and mRNA experimental Covid19 vaccines. What if I tell you, that may be very m

The unvaccinated need not worry about the Covid-19 variants.

  Nobody needs to worry about these variants : Dr. Mark McDonald.   First of all lets shrug off the burden the main stream media has been dumping on our shoulders. The unvaccinated do not cause mutations or variants. The vaccinated people create variants. Not me, Nobel Laureate Scientist Luc Montagneir and many other scientists and doctors have said that. Vaccinations cause variants.  Curve of vaccination is followed by curve of deaths: Luc Montagneir.  Reports are coming in from Britain and Israel (among the highest vaccinated countries in the world) that vaccinated people are suffering more Deaths and Hospitalizations with 'new variants' than the unvaccinated.

Red: Unvaccinated.  Remember the SAGE report  had predicted that majority of casualties of 'third wave' (Deaths and Hospitalizations) would be amongst the vaccinated people.  Also we have seen D

Deaths Occurring After Experimental Covid19 Vaccine Shots: A Small List.

 In the previous post on covid19 vaccine safety issue, I had emphasized how the deaths after vaccines may not be co-incidental but might have something to do with the experimental vaccines. Recently South Indian actor and comedian, Mr, Vivek had taken covid19 vaccine and urged everyone to take the vaccine. After taking the vaccine he went on to say " The vaccine is  the only thing that can save you. If you ask me if people who get vaccinated don't get Covid19, its not like that. Even if Covid19 hits you, there wont be death." The next day Mr. Vivek died of cardiac arrest causing a major panic among the people of Tamil Nadu. Many villagers refused to take vaccine . In fact people in India, especially the rural population are so scared of the experimental vaccines that in the state of UP, 200 villagers jumped into the river to avoid vaccinations . VAERS data: Not so safe after all.  Immediately the media swung into action and started discrediting anyone who questions the
