70-year-old woman survives heart failure thanks to Apple Watch

 


One of the top health features on the Apple Watch is the ECG Monitor, a tool designed to detect irregular heartbeats or the medical term for AFib alerts.

This sign is important because it can be fatal if the person is not treated immediately or treated as soon as possible.


Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is the most common heart rhythm disorder in the world in which the heartbeat is abnormal, irregular, too fast, or too slow.



This Apple health feature is saving lives again. According to reports from the LaCrosse Tribune, a 70-year-old woman from Minneapolis who was out for a walk received an alert from her smartwatch that her heart rate was abnormal.


His Apple Watch screen showed his heart was at 174 which could mean he had signs of AFib and to call a doctor immediately.


Arriving at the local hospital he underwent a series of tests and the doctor said the warnings from his Apple Watch were correct.


This incident happened last June. Unfortunately the report does not explain what happened next. But what is clear is that his condition is now under control because he is getting treatment quickly.


The ECG monitor was originally introduced on the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018 and has since been built into the latest Apple Watch models, with the exception of the Apple Watch SE because it is priced so low that it doesn't get the feature.
