The long-term symptoms of a disease with Covid-19 can be detected using Wearables like fitness watches and Smartwatches. This shows study results, which is a research team of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla now in the Science Journal Jama Network Open submit.
The researchers presented to persons with surviving Covid disease partly on months of symptoms such as an increased heart rate, write in their study. Covid diseases also needed long than people with other viral diseases to return to normal sleep and normal activity. These results are based on quantities of worn fitbit-wearables and additional information that study participants should enter MyDataHelps in Application.
The study is part of the DETECT project of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, which examines the benefits of Wearables as potential early warning systems for diseases such as COVID-19. Overall, 38 took.000 people with Wearable at the study part. For the now published part study, the data of 875 subjects were considered: It was involved in persons who wore a fitbit-wearable, which loves a fitbit-wearable and dear on Covid-19 tests due to symptoms for respiratory diseases.
From this record, 234 people were positively tested for the disease. In the case of 641, the research team went from a different viral disease due to the symptoms and the negative test. On the basis of the data collected by Fitbit-Wearables and additional information in the study app, scientists could compare both groups with each other.
79 days increased pulse
It turned out that people in both groups were initially slept by their illness and less moving. Also the heart rate, especially the quiet pulse, increased in both groups. With the 234 persons who had been positively tested for Covid-19, the return to the standard took much more much than in the other group. On average, Covid patients needed 79 days until their heart rate returns to the normality. On the other hand, the 641 people with negative Covid test needed only four days. The differences of person to person were very high.
The research team also noticed a pretending ridge of heart rate in Covid patients who performed about nine days after the first symptoms. After this short-term racy, which was not determined in the subjects with other diseases, the pulse quickly reached the positive on Covid-19 into the high. Successful studies were able to build on the published results and, above all, examine the long-term effects better, said the Studies Jennifer Radin in conversation with the New York Times.
