New Watch Can Help Doctors Monitor Your Heart in Real Time

There will soon be another way to monitor your heart from your wrist.

The Apple Watch 4 that was unveiled Wednesday will include electrocardiogram testing. Often referred to as an EKG or ECG, this is how health care providers check the electricity in a patient’s heart. To a layman, these are the squiggly lines across a monitor.

Usually, it takes several electrodes patches stuck to a person’s chest to get this information. Having it accessible through the watch could lead to quicker diagnosis of atrial fibrillation, an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase a person’s risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.

City of Reno and Flirtey Complete First Flights Under FAA Pilot Program for Drone Delivery of AEDs

RENO, NV--The City of Reno and Flirtey today announce that they have successfully completed their first flights in the FAA’s Drone Integration Pilot Program (IPP), which is fast-tracking regulatory approvals for drone delivery.

Conducting the first multi-drone delivery demonstration under the FAA’s IPP, a single Flirtey pilot simultaneously operated multiple Flirtey drones and simulated the delivery of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the presence of the FAA. They were conducted under a regulatory waiver allowing the operation of multiple small unmanned aircraft systems by one pilot, granted to Flirtey based on its leading safety systems and advanced technology.
