We don’t mean only the machines present in doctor’s offices, even those smart watch today they can monitor your heart rate, take your temperature and so on. And here begins the story of the father of four children, who, according to his own words, would be dead already, if not for a gift from his wife in the form of an Apple Watch.

He thought the watch wasn’t working…

David Last, a 54-year-old man from Norfolk, received a smartwatch from his wife for his birthday in April this year Apple. After a few days of use, the heart rate section of the watch sometimes showed a value of 30 beats per minute. To give you an idea, a normal heartbeat is 60 to 100 beats. David didn’t want to believe it, he said it was nonsense, that the watch must be broken.

However, after much persuasion, his wife convinced him to visit the district doctor. He then sent him to a cardiologist. In May, David underwent an MRI and in July he underwent a 48-hour ECG test to monitor his abnormal heart rate.

It was enough and the story would end tragically

The doctor called David again that he should come see him urgently. However, he could not call him, so he knew that something must have happened. The man suffered 138 cardiac arrests in a 48-hour period, his atrioventricular node stopped working and he was in danger of sudden cardiac death. This was a rare occurrence and the entire medical team consulted for a long time about what they should actually do. Finally, they resorted to a demanding operation, where they replaced the knot with a pacemaker.

This device detects any fluctuations in the heartbeat and helps to stabilize it again. David has been living a perfectly normal life ever since. If, however, he watches Apple Watch they didn’t warn and he didn’t go to the hospital, most likely these arrests would have happened at night in his sleep and he most likely wouldn’t have actually survived.
