Irregular heart rhythm notification Samsung Galaxy Watch has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In the following, we will learn about this feature of Samsung smart watches.
The Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification feature along with the electrocardiogram function monitors the rhythm and heart rate from the user’s wrist to alert Samsung Galaxy Watch users if symptoms such as atrial fibrillation disease (AFib) are observed. In this regard, according to Samsung’s announcement, the irregular heart rhythm (IHRN) notification feature in the company’s Health Monitor application has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Galaxy Watch irregular heart rhythm notification feature
Han Pak, Head of Samsung’s Mobile Experience Digital Health Team said, “We are very happy that the irregular heart rhythm notification feature has received FDA approval. This feature is designed to help the millions of people around the world who may not be aware of their possible heart disease.
The head of the digital health team of Samsung’s mobile experience continued to say that the design of this feature shows that Samsung has prioritized the creation of preventive solutions in the field of health and safety. With the help of these solutions, users can understand their overall health and cardiovascular health more comprehensively.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in the world, and atrial fibrillation (AFib), which is a type of arrhythmia, is also widely considered as one of the warning signs for major cardiovascular problems. This disease increases the risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart problems. In addition, some cases of AFib are asymptomatic or even silent, and for this reason, people cannot find out about its danger.
In this regard, Samsung has considered the BioActive sensor for Galaxy Watches so that users can better understand their heart health with features such as ECG recording (cardiocardiogram test) and HR alarm function (detection of abnormally high or low heart rate). In this regard, Samsung Galaxy Watch users can monitor their health more with the new IHRN feature.
After this feature is activated in the Samsung Health Monitor app, the Galaxy Watch’s BioActive sensor can detect irregular heart rhythms in the background. If a certain number of consecutive measurements are detected to be irregular, the Galaxy Watch will warn the user about the possibility of AFib and ask the user to take an ECG with the watch and measure this issue more accurately.
The Irregular Heart Rhythm Notification (IHRN) feature is part of Samsung’s One UI 5 Watch user interface and will be rolled out to new Galaxy Watch users by the end of the year. Of course, even after that, previous versions of Samsung smart watches can access it.
