    Numerical simulations of the Aliev-Panfilov model were performed. As such, a breathing instability for the pulse trains in one dimension was found. The breathing instability leads to spiral breakup in two dimensions. The periodic force was applied to eliminate the pulse trains and the spiral choose. It was found that the most effective frequency to eliminate the wave patterns was close tot he natural frequency of the breathing motion.
