English term or phrase: septum
Hola a todos, mi duda es la siguiente: necesito saber si en este texto "septum" se refiere al tabique auricular o al tabique ventricular:

" Bundle-branch blocks: Obstruction in the conduction.
Probably the most common ECG abnormality you’ll encounter is a bundle-branch block, which appears on the ECG as a widerthan- normal QRS complex (more than 0.12 second in duration). As you know, the cardiac impulse, originating in the sinoatrial (SA) node, normally travels through the bundle of His into the right and left bundle branches in the septum."

neutral  M. C. Filgueira: De acuerdo con "interventricular", ¿pero qué necesidad hay de emplear el latinismo "séptum" cuando en castellano se dice "tabique"? ("tabique interventricular": 9 420 páginas web [Google])
1 hr
  -> la pregunta fué acerca de la localización (auricular o ventricular), tabique ya estaba traducido por la persona que hace la pregunta.

agree  Silvina Matheu: Respondes a la pregunta con "interventricular", pero coincido con María Claudia.
