Apple Watch saved the life of this woman with heart problems
Patti Sohn escaped it beautifully thanks to her Apple Watch. Despite her healthy lifestyle, this 68-year-old grandmother suffers from previously undetected heart problems. It wasn’t until her smartwatch alerted her that her heart rate was too low that she went to the hospital to get a pacemaker.
We can no longer count the number of lives saved by the Apple Watch. Its many sensors, capable of detect the slightest anomaly in the organization of its owner, can indeed prove to be crucial assets in the event of a complicated situation. Its fall detection system, in particular, can call for help if the user does not react for a minute to its notifications. Very practical when feeling unwell, as was the case last year for this user who discovered an ambulance at his doorstep without having intervened.
Today’s beautiful story is that of Patti Sohn, a 68-year-old American grandmother. A nurse by training, she knew right away that something was wrong when her Apple Watch alerted her that his heart rate had been below 43 for 10 minutes. Just like this 25-year-old student to whom the same thing happened, she immediately went to the emergency room, where she spent the night under surveillance. Her condition was then not considered problematic and she was able to return home.
Apple twice alerts owner of heart problems
The story could have ended there, but rebel a week later. As she prepares for her next vacation, the Apple Watch is once again in full swing. The diagnosis is the same: his heart rate is too low. After another detour to the hospital, the caregivers detect him this time a serious blockage in the heart and decide to operate to place a pacemaker.

Today Patti Sohn is in perfect health and says she is very grateful to her Apple Watch (and the doctors) for saving her life. At this rate, the connected watch may well become an essential accessory for all people prone to physical disorders. In the future, it will even be able to detect car accidents, adding a new string to its bow.
