Apple Watch proves to be an important ally in fighting the new Coronavirus

New studies claim that the Apple Watch can be used as a tool for the detection of new infections by the new Coronavirus. Thanks to its heart rate meter, the smart watch can detect positive cases even before the first symptoms appear.

These conclusions must be taken into account, since they do not arrive from Apple. Some who testify to the viability of the Apple Watch in combating COVID-19 are some North American universities, namely Stanford University.

Fast heartbeat may be a sign of COVID-19 infection

The authors of these studies reveal that changes in the subjects’ heartbeat can help to find new infections with the new Coronavirus. Analyzing these data, it is possible to screen positive cases up to seven days before the first symptoms appear.

Variations in time between each heartbeat can assess the functioning of a person’s immune system. In patients positive for COVID-19, it is normal to see a low variation in their heart rate.

Rob Hirten, professor of medicine at Mount Sinai University in New York, says: “We already knew that heart rate variability markers change as inflammation develops in the body, and COVID is an incredibly inflammatory event. to predict that people are infected before they know it. “

Stanford University reports that 81% of the positive for the new Coronavirus reveal variations in their heart rate up to nine and a half days before the first symptoms appear. Thus, the early discovery of these changes may prevent asymptomatic individuals from spreading the virus unconsciously.

Apple Watch serves as a constant test of the COVID-19

Current methods of testing the new Coronavirus only measure the presence of the virus in a person’s body at that time. This does not prevent a person with a negative result from being infected after taking this test.

When using Apple Watch and other similar devices, users will have a method of detecting an eventual infection constantly at their disposal. They can constantly assess your heart rate and thus detect irregular variations in advance.

Users would be alerted of a possible infection by simply setting an alarm on their Apple Watch. This would not be triggered with constant variations, but in the presence of the detection of a significant oscillation.
