Apple Watch saves a YouTuber from illness

Prevenzione della fibrillazione atriale con Apple Watch: più di 4.300 ECG in due giorni

Apple Watch still useful in the medical field: this time it was the YouTuber Joel Telling who was lucky enough to wear the Apple smart watch during a tachycardia attack. Here are the facts. The watch, thanks to the too high heart rate notification system, informed the Youtuber that it had recorded a heart rate of over 120 beats per minute for more than 10 minutes; this prompted him to seek medical assistance.

Following the Apple Watch notification, Telling immediately went to the emergency room, where doctors established the tachycardia. According to Telling, doctors performed a series of tests that showed no pulmonary embolisms or irregular heart rate activities. The most likely cause of this tachycardia, said Telling himself, was "stress and dehydration from a recent trip". Therefore, he was given fluids in the hospital, so that his heart rate immediately returned to normal levels.
