In the past we have covered multiple cases in which Apple Watch genuinely saved lives, it detected heart problems which then lead to the cure before it was too late and the most recent case is of a 13-year-old boy living in Oklahoma.
Apple Watch Notifying Heart Issue
According to the reports, that were done by KFOR News, Skylar Joslin a 13yo boy from Oklahoma, was in his classroom when he got the alert from his Apple Watch about increased heart rate. The moment Skylar saw the notification, he immediately texted her mother with a screenshot.
I got a text message along with a screenshot of his heart rate that was 190.Text by Skylar to his mother
Another text by Skylar stated there is something wrong, as he wasn’t engaged in any sort of physical activity at the moment. Skylar’s mother picked him up from the school and went into the nearest emergency room. By then Skylar’s heart rate increased to 202 bpm.
Skylar was diagnosed with Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) at the hospital. Over time, this condition untreated and frequent episodes of supraventricular tachycardia may weaken the heart and lead to heart failure.
Although most cases of SVT are not considered to be dangerous or life-threatening, frequent episodes can weaken the cardiac muscle over time, and should, therefore, be addressed with medical intervention to prevent further complications.
If I wouldn’t have gotten his Apple Watch, I don’t know that I would’ve ever known. I mean it’s unknown how long it would’ve been going on or how long it would’ve really taken,Skyler’s mom
Apple Watch alerted Skylar about the heart abnormality and got the treatment before it was too late. In Skylar Joslin’s case Apple Watch only alerted about the problem, but there have been several cases in which Apple Watch’s presence saved lives, for example, Freire Jr’s Apple Watch alerted him about increased heart rate, he was ultimately diagnosed with arrhythmia that could result in a stroke or heart failure.
