An approximate analytical solution characterizing initial conditions leading to action potential firing in smooth nerve fibres is determined, using the bistable equation. In the first place, we present a non-trivial stationary solution wave. Then, we extract the main features of this solution to obtain a frontier condition between the initiation of the travelling waves and a decay to the resting state. This frontier corresponds to a separatrix in the projected dynamics diagram depending on the width and the amplitude of the stationary wave.
