The electrocardiogram (ECG) feature on Apple Watch has saved the life of a 61-year-old Indore resident and Apple CEO Tim Cook wished him a fast recovery post-surgery.
R Rajhans, a retired pharma professional who uses an Apple Watch Series 5, decided to check his ECG on the Apple Watch after he felt unwell in March this year.
The Apple Watch was gifted to him by his son Siddharth, a student at Harvard University who has worked with some of the top tech companies in Silicon Valley.
“Since Apple Watch allows the ECG function, one can check it on a more regular basis. Twice or thrice, in the middle of the night, my father was getting arrhythmia signals or irregular heartbeats. It’s a critical indicator,” Siddharth said.
When the same result persisted, he decided to share the findings with his doctor.
