Helping Your Patients Identify Early Warning Signs

Take an ECG with the ECG app on Apple Watch

  An electrocardiogram (also called an ECG or EKG) is a test
  that records the timing and strength of the electrical
  signals that make the heart beat. By looking at an ECG, a
  doctor can gain insights about your heart rhythm and look
  for irregularities.

New Apple Watch study aims to cut blood thinner use by AFib 

  The Apple Watch is being used as part of a study to
  determine if it is possible to cut down the use of expensive
  blood thinners used to prevent strokes and atrial

  The seven-year study, which has secured $37 million in
  funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute,
  aims to tackle the use of blood thinners, a medication
  typically used to prevent atrial fibrillation (AFib). It is
  thought that between 2.5 million and 5 million people in the
  U.S. are affected by AFib, which can potentially result in a
  stroke, heart failure, and death.

  Blood thinners are the common method of treatment, but it
  can cause problems including dangerous bleeding. Sustained
  use of blood thinners can be a health risk in itself, and
  also expensive, so a reduction in using them could help cut
  costs to patients as well as save lives.

Measure blood oxygen levels on Apple Watch Use the Blood Oxygen app on Apple Watch Series 6 or later to measure the percentage of oxygen your red blood cells carry from your lungs to the rest of the body. Knowing how well oxygenated your blood is can help you understand your overall health and wellness.

Fall Detection With Apple Watch (45s) After the call ends, your watch sends a message to your emergency contacts with your location letting them know that your watch detected a hard fall and dialed emergency services. Your watch gets your emergency contacts from your Medical ID. Some countries and regions have multiple emergency service numbers. For these countries, Apple Watch will call the number associated with ambulance services.

Track your sleep with Apple Watch With the Sleep app on Apple Watch, you can create bedtime schedules to help you meet your sleep goals. Wear your watch to bed, and Apple Watch can estimate the time you spent in each sleep stage-REM, Core, and Deep-as well as when you might have woken up. When you wake up, open the Sleep app to learn how much sleep you got and see your sleep trends over the past 14 days. To see your sleep history on iPhone, open the Health app on iPhone, tap Browse, then tap Sleep. For more details—the average time you spent in each sleep stage, for example—tap Show More Sleep Data.
