Apple Watch Detects 12-Year-Old Girl's Cancer by Heart Rate

Apple Watch detects cancer of a 12-year-old girl. The smart watch detects through a heart rate notification. Apple Watch was able to detect cancer early thanks to the ECG feature, allowing the girl to seek medical attention more timely.

The Apple Watch is also reported to have saved the lives of several people by calling emergency services at times when users cannot access their iPhone phones.

Apple smartwatches have also helped many users detect certain health abnormalities using the ECG and heart rate parameter sensors. In a recent report from Gadgets360, the Apple Watch saved the life of a 12-year-old girl in the US from cancer.

Imani Miles' Apple Watch, the girl's name, continues to emit warnings. His mother, Jessica Kitchen, noticed Miles' very high heart rate. Miles was then taken to the hospital for an appendectomy. During the operation, the doctors also found a neuroendocrine tumor in the girl's appendix. This condition is said to be uncommon in children. "If there wasn't an Apple Watch, Miles' condition could have been much worse," says Kitchen.

However, the report does not mention the Apple Watch model used by Miles. What is clear, the cancer has spread to other parts of the body of the 12-year-old boy. In other words, Miles will have to undergo further surgery. As per reports, Miles' operation at CS Mott Children's Hospital, USA, was a success. He also managed to recover.

In 2020, the Apple Watch told a 25-year-old that his resting heart rate was unusually high. The count reaches 210 beats per minute. It allowed him to see a doctor. The doctor told him that he needed an atrial ablation disorder to correct the atrial flutter.

Then, in March 2021, Apple said that the Apple Watch had warned 58-year-old former athlete Bob March about his heart arrhythmia. This condition allowed him to immediately schedule a doctor's appointment. The doctor then confirmed the deviation and there had to be an ablation procedure.
