A new study published this week showed that the heart monitoring feature on the Apple Watch may lead to unnecessary healthcare visits, as only about 10% of people who visit a doctor are in Mayo Clinic After noticing an abnormal pulse reading on their watch, they were eventually diagnosed with a heart attack.

According to the site “the vergeStudy leader Heather Heaton, associate professor of emergency medicine at the Medical College of India, said Mayo ClinicIn an email, the results show that home health monitors can lead to overuse of the healthcare system.

Heaton and the study team surveyed patients’ health records at each site Mayo Clinic, Including offices in Arizona, Florida, Wisconsin and Iowa, to refer to the term Apple Watch over a six-month period from December 2018 to April 2019.

The study came after it was submitted Apple A feature to detect abnormal heart rhythms, and they found records of 264 patients who said their Apple watches indicated a disturbing heart rhythm.

Of those groups, 41 reported receiving an alert from their watch. Others may have an alert, but it was not specifically mentioned in their health record.

Half of the heart patients have already been diagnosed, including 58 people previously diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, and about two-thirds of them have experienced symptoms, including dizziness or chest pain.

But when they went to health care, only 30 patients in the study got a heart diagnosis after visiting their doctors, and the study concluded that most of the troubling heart monitoring data may have been false.

Kirk White, associate professor of pediatrics at Mayo Clinic And the researcher in the study: “It is difficult for a user to ignore an alert that he may have a serious medical condition.”

Smartwatches may be useful ways for people to monitor their own health at home, but it remains unclear what their benefit is when creating the illusion in this way.
