Heart rate monitor Apple Watch, thanks to the efforts of developers Cardiogram and researchers at the University of California in San Francisco turned into a full diagnostic tool, has gained a new ability. Recently it became known that now it can also be used to identify arrhythmias. The accuracy of a diagnostic procedure is 97%.
The study analyzed more than 139 million sessions of measurements of the pulse received from 9750 users of the application Cardiogram. Analysis of diagnostic data was entrusted smoooches neural network DeepHeart, well proven in the detection of hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes in the early stages and even blood disorders.
Numerous laboratory experiments have shown that neural network DeepHeart determines the signs of arrhythmia at a level close to professional medical equipment, and better than it does the bracelet KardiaBand. Despite the fact that the difference in accuracy was not too significant — 97-98% vs 93% — work developers Cardiogram deserves respect.
Earlier, similar experiments was conducted by Apple in collaboration with scientists from Stanford University. The project was launched with a pilot application Apple Heart Study, which allowed the inhabitants of the United States from 17 years old to participate in the study and to test the diagnostic capability of the Apple Watch for yourself.
