Apple Watch has once again made the world crazy. This time a 16 year old boy’s life has been saved because of Apple Watch. Even before this, Apple has saved the lives of many users. This time the blood oxygen monitoring feature of Apple Watch has done this feat. For your information, let us tell you that apart from ECG, heart rate monitor, Apple Watch also has blood oxygen tracker.
Blood oxygen level had reached 66
Apple Watch saved the life of a 16-year-old boy by informing him about low blood oxygen in his body. His fingers had turned blue due to low blood oxygen. According to a report by CBS 8, Marcella Lee, an anchor of the CBS 8 news channel in San Diego, has given information about this.
Anchor, who lives in Colorado, was told by her 16-year-old son that he was not feeling well. The son’s lips and fingers had turned slightly blue, after which Marcella checked the blood oxygen with her Apple Watch, which was 66 percent. The level of blood oxygen in the body of a healthy person is not less than 90 percent.
the boy could have gone into a coma
After the blood oxygen report of Apple Watch, Marcella took the child to the hospital where again the blood oxygen level was checked which was very close to the report of Apple. The doctor told that if Marcela had delayed in coming to the hospital, their child could have gone into a coma. In the hospital report, the blood oxygen level was mentioned as 67, although now Marcela’s son is out of danger. The son is being treated for High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), which is not common in skiers. HAPE is reported to affect approximately one in 10,000 skiers in Colorado. Marcella’s son is a skier.
