It seems that Apple has introduced a kind of medical device to the community with the introduction of the Apple Watch 6 series. In Brazil, the use of the Apple Watch Series 6 is a valid method of monitoring blood oxygen concentrations in lung patients. Therefore, this smart gadget can be used to control various medical diseases. The Apple Watch Series 6 has introduced a new blood oxygen sensor to the medical community that could replace the pulse oximeter. Medical research has shown that the gadget's oxygen sensor can have important applications in the medical community.
Studies by physicians and researchers at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil on the accuracy of the watch have been published in the British journal Nature. In this study, the oxygen sensor of the Apple Watch Series 6 was compared to a medical pulse oximeter. During this study, about 100 patients with interstitial lung (ILD) and pulmonary obstruction (COPD) from the pneumology clinic, tests were performed by these two devices and their results were carefully analyzed. Interestingly, there is a strong and very close relationship between the results of the Apple Watch 6's oxygen sensor and the medical pulse oximeter. While the Apple Watch oxygen sensor reported higher blood oxygen concentrations, there were no significant differences between the results of the two devices in blood oxygen concentration and heart rate.
Therefore, from this study it can be concluded that the use of Apple Watch Series 6 is a reliable way to control blood oxygen concentration and heart rate in lung patients. And the high accuracy of this popular gadget has made it one of the medical tools of the day. The world of smartwatch technology is advancing at a remarkable rate, and the use of these gadgets to control the vital signs of other patients requires further study and medical examinations.
Apple also has its own studies in various fields. Medicine has started with the cooperation of foreign organizations. In April, the company partnered with the University of Washington to study Seattle Influenza to see if the Apple Watch could predict diseases such as Fu or other respiratory illnesses. In September, Biogen began a study with Apple and the University of California, California (UCLA) research team on how the Apple Watch works to diagnose symptoms of neurological diseases, including dementia and depression. It seems that this tech giant has shown with the release of this series of Apple Watch that it can have a say in medical science as well.
