Apple Watch sensor claims to detect potassium in your blood

IMG_2285 AliveCor KardiaBand, a sensor compatible with the Apple Watch, can detect  levels of potassium in blood. The Clevland Clinic was accepted with data on this new AliveCor KardiaBand for Apple Watch device.

KardiaBand, is the “first and only FDA-cleared medical device accessory” for Apple Watch.  Hyperkalemia is shown via detection of high potassium levels in blood.

The study used over 2 million ECGs linked with 4 million serum potassium values. Another study suggested that EKG readings may not be sensitive enough to catch everyone with hyperkalemia.

The  hyperkalemia detection ranged between 90 to 94 percent. That’s too high.
