All those who suffer from needle scare can heave a sigh of relief. This vital tool makes it easier to detect hyperkalemia, a condition that points to high levels of potassium in your blood, without any pricking of the skin. The new Apple watch wristband sensor provides an interesting and non-invasive way to detect high levels of potassium that can be dangerous for the heart. The AliveCor KardiaBand comes with an electrocardiogram (ECG ) system which, when paired with artificial intelligence technology, reads potassium levels. After that, the sensor sends the information to an app. These findings were based on a study of 2 million ECG s linked to 4 million serum potassium values collected from 709,000 patients between 1994 and 2017. A new Cleveland Clinic study says the smart band also detects abnormal heart rhythm and atrial fibrillation.
