Your Apple Watch will detect irregular heart rhythms thanks to a Stanford study

Apple and the prestigious Stanford University of California have teamed up to launch a study on the irregular rhythms of the human heart . These irregular rhythms are an important factor when detecting heart diseases in an early way. Now, our Apple Watch will be vital in this aspect detecting them, some announced in September and that is beginning to unfold in these moments. 

The Apple Watch will end up saving your life

Today Apple has launched a new application to the US Store called "Heart Study" which will have as a mission to collect data from the heart rate sensor of the Apple Watch thus measuring the irregular rhythms of the heart warning the user whether or not it is presenting atrial fibrillation, an arrhythmia or a tachyarrhythmia.

This study we are sure will lead to a new function fully developed in watchOS 5 next year that will greatly improve the fast attention thus increasing the survival rate. To do this study, experts have argued that atrial fabrication has caused 130,000 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations in the US each year. The vast majority was not diagnosed early due to lack of symptoms.
In the announcement that Apple has made today, have described this study as follows:
To calculate the heart rate and frequency, the Apple Watch sensor uses green LED lights flashing hundreds of times per second and light sensitive photodiodes to detect the amount of blood flowing through the wrist. The sensor's unique optical design picks up signals from four different points on the wrist, and when combined with powerful software algorithms, Apple Watch isolates heart rhythms from other noises. The Apple Heart Study application uses this technology to identify an irregular heartbeat.
This study is only open to people in the US with an Apple Watch Series 1 or higher, with an age over 22 years. If you are from the USA you can find this app in the Store . This study is going to save lives according to Jeff Williams and we hope that this data will be safe.
