Apple Watch saves another life with heart rate monitoring

Apple’s smartwatch will have been crucial in detecting a potentially fatal heart problem. Its user, a 79 year old man, was alerted by the smart watch about the irregular state of his heart rate, prompting him to act promptly.

According to CBS Austin, the team of local doctors subsequently confirmed the diagnosis of the Apple Watch, while the patient was immediately subjected to corrective surgery for the heart condition. A happy ending thanks to the Apple product.

“The watch gave me an alert … I looked down at the screen and had atrial fibrillation,” said Ray Emerson, 79, a former veterinarian in the city of Waco in the US state of Texas. “He told me he didn’t feel as good as he looked,” added the elderly man to the CBS Austin chain.

After the Apple Watch alert, Emerson visited a doctor who would later confirm the diagnosis of the smart watch. Atrial fibrillation is a severe heart failure characterized by irregular beats that increase the risk of fulminant attacks, in addition to clots (thrombi) and generalized heart failure.

Immediately referred to the local hospital and undergoing emergency surgery, the heart problem was successfully corrected. Emerson believes that had it not been for the clock alert, he would not have detected the potentially fatal problem.

Apple takes pride in monitoring heart rate on your Watch

The American citizen is the latest success story for the Apple Watch. This group of people who attribute to Apple Watch the precious notification that would save their lives continues to increase, testimonies that reinforce the company’s pride in its smart watch.

The heart rate monitoring function was activated by watchOS 5, which has since been present with the dedicated application. Users can, at any time, consult various metrics related to their health, with heart rate being one of them.

More recently, with the new generation of Apple Watch, oximetry – the index of dissolved oxygen in the blood – has been present. At all times, users are also alerted if the smartwatch detects abnormal and potentially serious situations.

For Apple this is one of the biggest advantages of your watch. The reliability of measurements, as well as the recognition of wearable as an auxiliary product in health monitoring. It is one of the biggest selling points and everything indicates that the Cupertino giant continues to perfect the smartwatch in this sense, that of helping to ensure the health and well-being of users.

Currently, Apple continues to work to make your Apple Watch an accessory not only recognized by the competent health authorities, but also by consumers. For all intents and purposes, they are on the right track.
