Pulse entrainment between two excitatory media is studied in the Aliev-Panfilov model. We show that a spiral chaos in the continuous excitatory medium can be eliminated by a grid network using the pulse entrainment. This mechanism may be applied to the cardiac system, where the ventricular fibrillation is interpreted as the spiral chaos and the Purkinje fibers act as the grid network.
