[Diagnosis] Smart Watch detects Sleep Apnea
#1
Smart Watch detects Sleep Apnea
I saw this today regarding Smart Watches.  I'm sure it's not ready for "PrimeTime" yet.

This is by no means the only disease that wearables may be able to detect. Ballinger previously used the Apple Watch to identify an abnormal heart rhythm with up to a 97 percent accuracy when used in conjunction with Cardiogram’s AI-based algorithm. The Watch has also been able to identify sleep apnea and hypertension with impressive accuracy rates. And Ballinger wants to see exactly how useful the Apple Watch and other fitness wearables may be in the diagnostic realm — he and his team hope to examine a wide range of diseases capable of being sussed out by heart sensors.

On another note... It's been announced today that doctors were able to diagnose diabetes using other data obtained using an Apple Watch.

I read that they were only able to confirm the diagnosis.  The study group all had diabetes, they were unable to confirm a percentage of the group.

Still very promising for the future.

RE: Smart Watch detects Sleep Apnea
Some clinics are using these watches over here, but along with an APAP for home testing, I think they also have a oxygen sensor in them, maybe it is another watch, but I have not seen one in the flesh as it were.
I am NOT a doctor.  I try to help, but do not take what I say as medical advice.


Every journey, however large or small starts with the first step.

Sleep-well
