My friends, partners, welcome. I’m lying in the 1st city hospital of the city of Novosibirsk in the cardiology department. Thanks to our Helo for saving me! 2 months ago, I noticed my HELO showed my ECG as being abnormal., Although I felt tine, I decided to go get an ECG, and after telling them, they sent me directly to a physician. He immediately called an ambulance, and they took me to a cardiologist. Now, my heart rhythm is back to normal, and the doctors compared their ECG, pulse, and blood pressure mesasurements to my HELO and it was 99.9% accurate. They said I’m lucky to be alive. Before this incident, I treated HELO only as a fitness tracker, and now I know that was a mistake.
I train for and run marathons and half marathons, and because of my level of fitness, my resting pulse is typically lower than the normal range of 60 – 100 beats per minute. The HELO picks this up, and on the 24th of this month, picked up my slower pulse and told me I had an ‘abnormal’ ECG.
If you have noticed I have gone off the radar for the past two days, it’s because I was admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, and I want to share my experience with you. On Friday morning, I was not feeling well. I took an ECG reading on my HELO at noon, and the reading said “Abnormal.” I didn’t pay much attention because I thought it was my work and stress making the reading show abnormal. At about 2pm, I began to feel uncomfortable. I took another reading, and I noticed this time not only my was my ECG abnormal but my blood pressure had gone up and my heart rate was at 130. I called my fiancée to immediately send me to the closest hospital, and at the emergency gate I collapsed. I was treated immediately and doctor and nurses managed to revive me. However, the hospital did not have a heart specialist, so I was transferred by ambulance to the hospital that had my medical records. At the hospital, the heart specialist came to me after all the ECG and blood tests, and he told me I was lucky to have arrived when I did. Any later and I would have been in a very dangerous situation. When I took my first ECG reading on my HELO with the result of abnormal, I should have gone straight to my doctor. To those of you who are wearing your HELO, please do your regular ECG check and most importantly, TRUST YOUR HELO! And for my friends who are not wearing HELO, you must get one for yourself and for your loved ones. I am not asking you to buy something that is not necessary, I am telling you to get your LIFE SAVING DEVICE!
