New Smartwatch Can Detect Sleep Apnea And Atrial Fibrillation
It Registers Blood Oxygen Level Thought The Night
There is now a smartwatch that can detect sleep apnea. This is a condition that lowers blood oxygen level while sleeping, due to airflow obstruction, which affects the brain, due to a lower oxygen supply, being one of the main causes of dementia. Actually, this condition is suffered by 18 million people in the US. Being aware if it is not easy since it occurs at night when sleeping. This is the reason that 80% of sufferers are not aware of it. The smartwatch has a blood oxygen sensor that transmits light into the blood vessels, taking reading throughout the night, and noticing when the wearers are experiencing a low oxygen level. It also detects an irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, which is a condition that can cause blood clots in the heart, which can cause organ damage, when pumped into the blood vessels, and can even lead to a stroke, if the blood clot reaches the brain.
