Smartphones and gadgets have become an integral part of our lives. Now people have started spending most of their time on these. Smart Watch is not only for watching time, sometimes it also plays a big role in our life. And one such incident has come to the fore when a young man’s life has been saved because of Apple Watch. A few days ago (March 12) Dentist Nitesh Chopra (34 years) living in Yamuna Nagar, Haryana, felt discomfort in his chest and monitored his ECG through Apple Watch, which has irregular heart. Rhythm (Afib) alert appeared. After that Nitesh along with his wife Neha immediately went to the nearest hospital, where he showed the doctor the ECG report from his Apple Watch.
In a letter to Tim Cook (CEO of Apple), Neha writes, “We arrived at the hospital only because of the technology provided by you and my husband, are now fine and healthy. I wish you lots of love and happiness And thank you to my husband for giving his life.’ To this, Tim replied, “I’m so glad you sought medical help and received the treatment you needed. Thank you for sharing your story with us, stay healthy.”
“We ignored the readings thinking that a young man in his 30s cannot have such arrhythmia,” says Nitesh. But our last reading on Saturday, March 12, was in line with previous warnings and led us to believe that something was not right with my heart health and that we should go to the hospital. Once we reached the hospital, the doctor did an ECG and we compared it with the monitor. While I was in the CCU, my wife and I were constantly comparing our Apple Watch readings to the monitor and they were in sync. ,
The ECG app can use the electrical heart sensor on the Apple Watch Series 4, Series 5, Series 6 or Series 7 to record your heartbeat and rhythm and then check the recording for atrial fibrillation (AFib), which A form of irregular rhythm. The ECG app records an electrocardiogram that represents the electrical pulse that makes up your heartbeat. The ECG app checks these pulses to get your heart rate and see if the upper and lower chambers of your heart are in rhythm. If they are out of rhythm, that could be AFib.
