Apple Watch helped to save Kentucky woman and her baby's life
The Apple Watch and its high heart rate notifications are credited yet again for saving a user and her baby's life.
According to news site Fox19, Veronica Williams – a Northern Kentucky mother – was alerted by her Apple Watch on elevated heart rates when she was sitting on the sofa. The high heart rate alert went off again a few days later and Williams felt breathless.
Williams went to the hospital where the medical team informed her that she needed to do an emergency c-section. While the baby was delivered safely, Williams was later diagnosed with a rare form ofmyocarditis. The doctor said that Williams' immune system was fooled into attacking her own heart.
Although it has been two years since the incident, Williams is still on medication and her condition is improving. Since the incident, Williams said she wears her Apple Watch daily.
High and low heart rate notifications are available on the Apple Watch Series 1 or later models. The Apple Watch will alert you if the heart rate remains above or below a chosen beats per minute (BPM). This setting can be accessed via Apple Watch app on your iPhone > Heart > High Heart Rate / Low Heart Rate.
