How to Get the Most out of the iheart Record App
Now that you’ve downloaded the iheart apps and spent some time getting to know how the device works, you might be wondering: what can I do with iheart Record?
iheart Record was designed to let you document and share heart health and oxygen saturation data recorded over a set period of time. It can be used to measure how your body responds in the moment to various activities and scenarios, letting you look back on your results and add notes for context.
Whether you’re looking to monitor your heart health more closely or are a healthcare practitioner interested in using the app with patients, here’s how to get the most out of the iheart Remote app.
How it works
Paired with the iheart device, iheart Record records the user’s heart rate and blood oxygen saturation over varying lengths of time. You can indicate, by putting in markers, what’s happening at different points.
For example, if someone gets up from a chair and walks around the room in a circle, you can see if their heart rate rises appropriately or if their oxygen saturation falls, and make any relevant notes.
Here’s how to get started:
- Clip the iheart oximeter to your index finger while in a position or activity of your choice, and select a recording period of 1, 3, 5, or 10 minutes.
- You’ll receive a simple, easy to read graph of your heart rate and blood oxygen saturation during that time.
- Toggle between calendar dates for easy access of your logged information.
- Email a PDF of your results, if desired.
The iheart Record app can be useful for monitoring both personal wellness or the health of a patient in a healthcare setting. By assessing cardiovascular health, pulmonary health, and aspects of brain function, the applications are endless.
For example, healthcare practitioners can be used to track a patient’s progress over time, validate treatment plans, and review patients’ responses to stimuli, relaxation training, and fitness tests. iheart Record can be used by conventional medical doctors for clinical purposes, as the app mirrors the oximeter display without changing or processing any data.
Users can effortlessly document and evaluate their health data all in one place with objective, recorded results that they can compare from test to test.
These applications are just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re a healthcare practitioner and are interested in learning more about using iheart in your practice, visit our webpage.
