Heart disease has one of the highest mortality rates in men and women. Detecting them in time to follow a treatment according to the diagnosis is very important. Prevention is the best medicine for a cardiac pathology of care. And the engineers at Apple knew very well how to deal with the need of many people, a global pathology.
The Apple Watch, as we know, has ECG technology , which allows to detect cardiac anomalies. And it is this function that is saving the lives of many people worldwide.
Dr . Phil Massey , a cardiologist at the Pacific Medical Center, told KIRO 7 how his patient managed to get attention to his heart problem with the help of the Apple Watch. This is because the device found an arrhythmia that was detected in time.
Apple Watch the best cardiac monitoring device
The patient had been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation , and received the corresponding treatment. However, he stopped following the corresponding medication. Although the patient felt better and everything seemed normal. The Apple Watch notified him that his diagnosis had returned.
Dr. Massey stated:
“The patient had lost the anticoagulant and did not know that his illness had returned. And when you have FA , it can be intermittent, although you can continue with your normal life the diagnosis is still valid. It is then that; the patient went to the hospital to show me the follow-up on his watch and show me that his diagnosis had returned. We put it in an anticoagulant to prevent a stroke, so it’s a big problem if it had not been detected in time.”
Once the treatment was received, many in the hospital were finally convinced of the great help that the Apple Watch gave the patient and saved his life. Dr. Massey is very pleased that devices can be purchased in the market that can track patients outside their office.
