Apple Watch ECG App Cleared Despite Stress On GP’s

Apple Watch has all its users awestruck from every perspective of technology owing to the health-related and trending technological advances added to the small electronic. The new series of the watch believes in taking health care to the next level that is by using an electrocardiogram-based technique to test whether the heart is functioning normally. Apple has its new version of a mobile electrocardiogram that is the ECG app ready to hit the market through the watch series with the permission to check to heart in every step without being confined to the hospitals. The regulators have already cleared its utilization across every city in Europe and the UK.

The general practitioners (GP) are already concerned as the pressure on the doctors is only going to double as they have to deal with patients believing more of their mobile obtained data rather than the doctor’s piece of advice and in the long run, lead to a number of heart-related abnormalities. The app works by noting the heart rhythm with the help of electrodes present on the circlet of the watch. After the reading is captured a PDF of the entire chart is sent to the user’s phone directly. According to Apple, the ECG app works with a lot of accuracies and also the capability of identifying irregularities if any in the rhythm.

Apple’s vice-president of health Sumbul Desai was the pioneer behind the development as she herself was a practicing physician and thus is quite stern that the data will remain secure and can be shared with the doctors when required. The product is definitely going to bridge the gap between the patients and physicians rather than widening it. In California at an event, Apple had its Apple Card Credit concept introduced. This new technology with the support of Goldman Sachs has been introduced to help users as there are places where the mobile payments are still not accepted. It is in-built in the Apple Wallet app and also integrates easily with Apple Pay. There is a laser-etched titanium card developed with no account number, CVV, or expiry date limited to the US for now and is expected to reach the UK soon.
