Apple is a very popular household brand known now a days. After winning the hearts of millions of users, now the company is also contributing towards society by saving thousands of lives!! Yes, Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor has helped to save many lives.
32 years old William Monzidelis was working at his family’s bowling alley in the Bronx when he became dizzy and had unexplained bleeding. After tracking his alarmingly fast pulse, the Apple Watch alerted him to seek medical attention. His mother drove him to the hospital; he began hemorrhaging and had seizures in the car. Doctors in the emergency room soon discovered that Monzidelis had an ulcer that had ruptured. Due to this, he needed a blood transfusion before he could even undergo surgery. Doctors said he might have waited until it was too late to seek help without the Apple Watch.
Deanna Recktenwald, a teenager from Florida also had a similar experience with her Apple Watch when the device alerted her to a heart rate of 190 beats a minute and suggested to seek medical attention. At the hospital, Recktenwald learned she was suffering from kidney disease.
I honestly feel your Apple Watch has saved my daughter’s life, Recktenwald mother wrote to Apple.
The Apple Watch first went into the market in late 2015. Nine months after the market launch, Apple COO Jeff Williams told in a radio program that the company had received a ton of emails from people who said the watch had saved their lives by alerting a rapid pulse.
