Put Bluetooth in the heart! British female firefighter successfully undergoes surgery and can view data with her mobile phone
According to foreign media reports, a British firefighter became one of the first people in Europe to implant a Bluetooth device in the body. Doctors can monitor her heartbeat from a distance. This week, 34-year-old Sean Jones underwent a 10-minute operation at Southampton University Hospital to install the Bluetooth device on the heart. The new device will record her heart activity and send it to a smartphone, which can upload and view data through the MyCareLink app.
The device is smaller than standard paper clips. It is designed for those who need long-term monitoring due to problems such as cardiac arrest or palpitations. The firefighter broke her neck in a car accident at the age of 18. Since then, she has frequently stopped beating for unknown reasons.
Ms. Jones lives in Torton near Southampton, UK. She told The Telegraph:“The accident was very serious. I was told that I was only a few millimeters away from disability or even death.” “My neck There are metal plates on the front and back. Since then, I have often suffered from this unstable symptom. Sometimes I don’t get dizzy for a few months, and then I have many temporary faints. Hope this can help identify the problem. The reason, because I can’t risk what will happen if a dangerous situation occurs.”
“I can feel the implant, but it doesn’t feel as strong as I thought.”
American technology companiesMedtronic designed this implanted device, which will share the latest information with Ms. Jones’ health team.
The hospital’s cardiologist consultant Paul Roberts (Paul Roberts) said that the device means that people with heart monitors will no longer need to go to the hospital to record data. He said:”We are one of the first companies in Europe to implant this innovative device, and now we can see what is happening (patients) around the clock.”
“It is the same as our headsets and speakers. Different from Bluetooth, Bluesync technology is a new form of low energy consumption and has strict high-level network security measures. After implantation, we pair it, just like pairing other devices. All the patient needs to do is to keep the phone or tablet The application in the background of the computer opens.”
The 73-year-old David Southworth from Colchester became the first person in the world to install Medtronic’s cobalt implant device, which can monitor him Heartbeat. Since then, several people have installed this device.
