    Apple announced this week the launch of an application Apple Heart Study based on ResearchKit, which uses the heart rate sensor in Apple Watch to collect data on heart rhythms are irregular and notify users who may be suffering from a atrial fibrillation.

    As part of the study, if it detects an irregular heart rhythm, the participants in the program will receive a notification on your Apple Watch and iPhone, a free consultation with a participating physician in the study, and an electrocardiogram.

    For Apple to work with the medical community not only allows users to have information about your state of health, but also help achieve breakthroughs in science.

    To calculate the heart rate, the sensor of Apple Watch uses LED lights to make flashes hundreds of times per second and account with diodes photosensitive, which detect the increase in blood flow in the wrist.

    This study is done in partnership with the School of Medicine of the University of Stanford.

    cardiac arrhythmias are not always symptoms of serious disease, but atrial fibrillation is a cause of an attack that can lead to death. Many people do not have other symptoms and its diagnosis at times is difficult to achieve.

    The study Apple Heart Study is available in the App Store of the united States, and participants must be over 22 years and have a Apple Watch Series 1 or later. The application requires an iPhone with iOS 11 or later.
