Irregular Rhythm Notification feature

Since many heart conditions go undiagnosed after the age of 40, an ECG should be performed on a regular basis. However, with today’s lifestyle, heart problems can strike at any age. This necessitates constant monitoring of your heart rate. When it comes to this, Atrial Fibrillation is a popular topic of discussion. Due to the lack of early onset of symptoms, this is a difficult-to-diagnose health condition. The ECG app and the Apple Watch’s irregular rhythm notification feature come in handy in this situation.

While ECG readings usually necessitate a visit to the doctor and ECG machines, those who own an Apple Watch find it easier to monitor their heart health. It aids in detecting early signs and symptoms of a heart condition so that you can visit a doctor for a more thorough examination and prompt treatment.

Functions of Irregular Rhythm Notification Feature

When you put your watch on, the irregular rhythm notification feature checks your heart rhythm in the background and alerts you if anything is abnormal. This could indicate the onset of Atrial Fibrillation, or AFib.

After receiving a notification, users can immediately launch the ECG app (in regions where this feature has been approved) and perform a comprehensive test in less than 30 seconds. To complete this step, place your finger over the Digital Crown for one minute, and the ECG waveform will be generated. Apple has created two algorithms that users of the Apple Watch can use to measure ECG waves. The first algorithm allows the ECG application to check for signs of AFib during higher heart rates, such as those experienced during exercise.

However, due to regulations in some regions and countries, you may not be able to access the current version. However, if you follow the below-mentioned steps carefully, you can easily determine which version of the irregular rhythm notification feature your Apple Watch is using.
