Apple Watch Can Detect Heart Problems

///Apple Watch Can Detect Heart Problems

The Apple Watch has the potential to become a lifeguard. Your built-in heart rate monitor is extremely accurate and can detect cardiac arrhythmia by up to 97 percent. This resulted in a new study.

The study of the University of California and the Cardiogram App involved 6158 Apple Watch users, who monitored their pulse with the health application. Most users had a normal heart attack and a normal ECG, but 200 subjects started with the diagnosis paroxysmal prescreening (a common form of cardiac arrhythmia).

Based on the data collected by Apple Watch, 139 million heart rate measurements and 6338 mobile ECGs, scientists trained a neural network. This should identify cardiac arrhythmia.

With success as shown in the following test: 51 people who were registered for a cardioversion, a special defibrillation form that restores the normal heart rhythm, carried an Apple Watch 20 minutes before and 20 minutes after the procedure. The AI should then evaluate the data. The results of the experiment were convincing: with an accuracy of about 97 percent, the AI-based solution detected a pre-flash.

These results show that wearables, such as smartwatches, are not only a new way to monitor medical therapies for cardiac arrhythmias but can also point to health issues. Even though mobile controls will never replace conventional examination methods, they have the potential to draw people’s attention to the fact that they may suffer from a pre-emptying.

The study started in 2016 and continues to grow. Building on these results, the researchers now want to determine whether Apple Watch can also identify an impending stroke. According to Cardiogram co-founder and scientist Brandon Ballinger, a quarter of all strokes are triggered by cardiac arrhythmias.

    Good job!!!
    Apple is always updated. The new Apple watch will be absolutely very helpful & it will make our lifestyle more safe & smart. Health is our main wealth & heart attack is very common & dangerous incident now a days. If apple watch can detect heart problem & identity an impending stroke then what could be better than that? We all know that apple community are genius & the most important thing that they can trying to invent new technology not only for upgrade life style but also for mankind & a safe & secure life. All the best Apple.
    Nice Article Admin.

    How effective is the watch going to actually be when most heart monitoring is done through ECG? Sounds like BS…thankfully I’ve already conquered my heart disease myself with the help of the 3 step heart cure book. I still remember when I was ignorant of heart disease, unaware that dizziness and nausea were symptoms. I woke up one morning in April a year ago feeling like someone was pushing down of my chest. I couldn’t get out of my bed. My left arm started to feel heavy, the pain in my chest grew, and I felt an urge to urinate. I had to go to the ER for them to finally tell me I was having a heart attack. They told me I had several blockages and needed a triple heart bypass. I went through the procedure was prescribed a ridiculous amount of meds, as well as told to “eat healthy and exercise often”.But I felt like there was more I could do. That’s when I stumbled on this book and read it cover to cover in one day. The information just made too much sense for me to stop reading. Since adopting the practices of the book, I’m now med and BS technology free. Sorry Apple!
