Instead of the periodic or optional blood pressure measurement that the Apple Watch can currently do, we are working on continuous monitoring.
Apple Watch will be able to measure blood pressure continuously
Apple Watch perhaps the first health feature sensing blood pressure was his talent. After five years and six releases, this is still a major feature and it looks like Apple is still working on it.
A newly emerged couple patent application Apple’s, Apple Watch monitor blood pressure continuously it shows what it wants to make possible. “Electrical Connection of Pulse Transition Time (PTT) Measurement System to Heart for Blood Pressure Measurement”, tells us that this continuous measurement says he can provide.
“Current blood pressure measurement approaches fail to provide continuous measurement of blood pressure,” the article says. “In addition, when an oscillometric blood pressure measurement cuff is used to monitor a person’s blood pressure while sleeping, intermittent swelling and descent of the cuff can disrupt the person’s sleep patterns, thus harming the wearer to some extent and potentially altering the person’s asleep blood pressure.
Therefore, appropriate and effective approaches for continuous measurement of blood pressure in situations that do not require surgical procedures continue to attract attention, ”he continues.
Both this and similar “Blood Pressure Monitoring Using Wrist-Worn Multi-Function Device” patent In your application, your hour only part of the process It is recommended to be used as. In each of these new apps, the watch shows how long it takes for a pulse from the user’s heart to reach him. measuring blood pressure by timing It will work on the principle.
This is the user’s Apple Watch together with electrode or another you ask means it will wear. So it probably won’t be adopted by everyone and medically advice If it will be used.
Apple has also previously explored continuous heart rate measurements without using extra tools such as electrodes or blood pressure cuffs.
