Apple Watch helps the woman detect supraventricular tachycardia heart disease



Another Apple Watch Series 4 user is grateful for the investment in the holiday in smart wearable. A North Carolina woman bought her Apple Watch with appeal from heart-focused health features and paid off by helping her detect a heart disease called supraventricular tachycardia.

Whoosh! Screen Cleaner

As reported by local ABC 11 news, Beth Stamps, who is the home nurse, discovered the heart rate rising while at a patient's home. She said she felt she had just completed the marathon and could not get her heart rate down by relaxing.

While standing still, her Apple Watch showed that her heart rate was abnormally high at 177 bpm. Thereafter, the stamps' employees were called emergency medical services and doctors ended up testing two days.

She was eventually diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia. Here's how Wikipedia describes the heart disease:

Supraventricular tachycardia ( SVT ) is an abnormally fast heartbeat that occurs when improper electrical activity occurs in the upper part of the heart. [2] There are four major types: atrial fibrillation, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT), atrial flutter and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. [2] Symptoms may include palpitations, sensation of dizziness, sweating, shortness of breath or chest pain. [1]

  Apple Watch Heart Disease Diagnosis High Heart Rate

Stamps said she has experienced what felt like a racing heartbeat lately for short periods, but it has always gone down. Having his Apple Watch quantify exactly what happened to the heart rate, doubt helped her make a quick decision to seek medical attention. She now takes mediation to correct the abnormal heart rate.

Apple Watch has saved many lives with features like being able to dial 911 with the side button and more. However, with fallout detection, ECG and irregular heart rate detection on Apple Watch Series 4, portability becomes even more valuable to Apple users.
