Apple Watch 5 saved Brazilian man with elevated heart rate notification

The year of 2020 just started, and Apple’s devices are already saving lives. During the last week, Apple’s newly released Apple Watch 5 saved a Brazilian man from a potential heart failure or stoke.

The Brazilian citizen, called Jorge Freire Jr., has recently shared how his Apple Watch 5 saved him from a heart rhythm disorder called tachycardia.

Tachycardia is a heart disorder/condition that makes your heart beat faster than normal (more than 100 times per minute), even when the individual is at rest. Normally, tachycardia doesn’t leave patients with complications or symptoms. However, there’s a small chance that it can lead to a cardiac arrest when left untreated.

Jorge’s Apple Watch 5 alerted him with a notification, showing him that he was having a high blood pressure. Regardless of trying to rest for 30 minutes straight, his Apple Watch showed him once again that his blood pressure was still high.

That’s what led Jorge to believe that it was tachycardia; an educated guess that made him rush straight to the ER. After the examination, the doctors gave Jorge specific medication to help slow down his blood pressure and get it back to normal levels.

After getting checked out by doctors, Jorge praised his Apple Watch for saving his life from a possible stroke or heart failure.

When everything was back to normal and Jorge was told he was safe to go back home, he decided to share his story with the company (Apple), sending an email directly to [email protected].

A few hours later, to Jorge’s surprise, no one other than Tim Cook himself answered that email, writing a cheerful message to personally thank Jorge for sharing his story and telling him that he was glad to know that everything turned out fine.
