Apple Watch saves a woman
A Michigan woman was alerted by your Apple Watch of your abnormally high heart rate. The report states that Feenstra’s heart rate was at 169 beats per minute when his Apple Watch reported the issue. What is even more surprising is that Feenstra was not doing strenuous activity and his heart rate was also elevated without any symptoms. He was having a heart attack.
“I had pain in my left hand, I had a little swelling in my left foot, I had indigestion that I just explained as acid reflux that I felt as I got older. The most important thing was the pain in my shoulder and I thought I had sucked and put my muscles out of control somehow.
After the alert Feenstra rushed to a local hospital when it was confirmed she had heart block. After days of analysis, it was determined that he had a complete blockage in what is called the widow’s creative artery. A stent procedure has been performed and is in full swing today. “The heart is building up its resistance and I am very happy,” said Feenstra.
Like other users, Feenstra also thanks Apple for integrating the heart monitoring function into the Apple Watch and so he did not hesitate to share his story and encourage loyalty to the Apple Watch.
