The Heart Study App is launched by Apple to identify irregular hearth rythm

The Apple Company recently came up with the Heart Study App which utilizes the heart rate sensor of the Apple’s watch for collecting the data for the irregular heart rhythms and also to notify all the users who are experiencing the atrial fibrillation (AFib).The atrial fibrillation is the major cause of the strokes. Many of the people do not experience the symptoms, so the AFib often goes undiagnosed. For the calculation of the heart rate and also its rhythm, the watch sensor utilizes the green LED lights that flash the lights hundreds of the times in a second and also the light sensitive photo diodes carry out the detection of the volume of blood which is flowing through the waist.

 

This technology has been put to use by the Apple Heart Study application for the identification of an irregular heart rhythm in a person

The unique optical design of the watch’s sensor gathers the signals from the four of different points on the wrist. When these signals are combined with the software algorithms, the watch would be isolating the heart rhythm from the other types of the noises. This technology has been put to use by the Apple Heart Study application for the identification of the irregular heart rhythm in a person.

 

For the calculation of heart rate and rhythm, the Apple’s watch sensor utilizes the green LED lightening flashes and also photo diodes

The Apple Company claimed that soon it would be collaborating with the Stanford University for improving the technology which is being utilized for detecting and analyzing the irregular health rate. This app will be available in the US Apple store for all those customers who are of the age of 22 years or above and posses the Apple watch series 1 or the later version .For the calculation of the heart rate and rhythm, the Apple’s watch sensor utilizes the green LED lightening flashes and also the photo diodes for the detection of the volume of blood which is flowing through the wrist of a person.

The Apple Company is putting all its efforts to bring the medicine and technology together

Whenever an irregular heart rhythm is determined, the participants will be receiving a notification on the Apple’s watch and also the iPhone. Along with that the participants will also be receiving the free consultation from the doctor and they will receive an ECG (Electrocardiogram) for the additional monitoring too.

 

Earlier, the users of the Apple watch were being able to add the products like the FDA approved Kerdia band which providers EDA readings

The Apple Company has been working with the medical community and is making an effort to advance discoveries in the field of the medical sciences. Earlier, the users of the Apple watch were being able to add the products like the FDA approved Kerdia band which provided them with the EDA readings. They were also in a position to detect the heart conditions like the AFib.The Apple Company is putting all its efforts to bring the medicine and technology together.
