NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Top NYC Cardiologist, Dr. Steven Reisman, Director of the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center (https://newyorkcardiac.com) in Manhattan, New York announced today that he has seen a significant rise in the past year due to the popularity of smart watch heart monitoring. The most popular smart watch the cardiologists’ patients use is The Apple Watch which features electrocardiogram (ECG) testing.
Dr. Reisman stated, “It is remarkable how many patients are using smart watch fitness bands to be proactive about their heart health. My NYC patients come to me because they believe they have self-diagnosed, with the use of smart watch technology, heart palpations, racing heart, skipping heart beats, or irregular heartbeats. The patient typically shows me the data on their smart watch or the smart watch’s app. This data allows me to perform more comprehensive testing to rule out of atrial fibrillation- an irregular heart rate that can increase my patient’s risk of heart failure, stroke, or heart related issues. Because of their smart watch data they typically come to my cardiology practice to undergo electrocardiographic monitoring and other diagnostic tests to evaluate their heart function”.
Smartwatch heart monitoring, which usually syncs with an app to review and preserve data, is both useful for the proactive health conscious individual as well as people who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation, a common heart rhythm disturbance, is a condition which affects millions of people, can now be monitored in real time. Dr. Reisman stated, “Just last week I had a patient who made an emergency same day appointment at my office because her smart watch alerted her that she had signs of an irregular heartbeat along with symptoms of palpitations. I tested her and performed further testing to confirm the smart watch diagnosis. I have heard similar stories from my colleagues.”
