This man says that the Apple Watch Series 4 has saved his life by detecting a heart problem



Barry Maden; a citizen of Nashua, New Hampshire (United States), affirms that the last model of the Apple Watch has saved his life.

In principle, this man bought the Apple Watch Series 4 mainly to use its functionality of detection of falls , or so his wife Tara affirms.

Barry Maden has suffered a brain injury, and the couple had the help of the latest version of Apple Watch to call emergency services (911) if it fell to the ground and there was no one around to help.

But to the surprise of Barry and Tara, the Apple Watch Series 4 has saved his life in another very different way ... Do you want to know what it is about? Keep reading!

This is how the Apple Watch Series 4 has saved a new life


Barry Maden was alerted with a notification in his Apple Watch Series 4 about his heart, advising him that he should go see a doctor . Once in the hospital, they did a complete electrocardiogram that confirmed the problem.

He suffered from atrial fibrillation (AF) , the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia among heart diseases. It is characterized by uncoordinated and irregular atrial beats. Fortunately in this case, the patient was sedated and successfully operated.

"IT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TAKEN ME MUCH LONGER TO REALIZE IF I DID NOT HAVE SOMETHING TELLING ME SOMETHING WAS NOT WORKING WELL."

Good old Barry just thought he was suffering from some anxiety related to Christmas vacation trips. But thanks to its Apple Watch Series 4, your life is no longer in danger.

Users do not need exclusively an Apple Watch Series 4 to detect atrial fibrillation of their heart, since models of previous generations also have optical heart rate sensors. But the electrocardiogram function of the latest model provides more accurate data.
