DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the first human heart transplant happened in 1967? It happened in Cape Town, South Africa back during a time when heart rate monitor apps even existed. On December 3rd of that year, a human heart was transplanted from one human body to another. The transplant was conducted by South African surgeon Dr. Christiaan Barnard. He and his surgical team removed the heart of a 25-year-old woman who had died following an auto accident. They placed it in the chest of 55-year old Louis Washkansky, who was dying of heart ailments. As a result of the procedure, the patient was able to live for 18 days. This remarkable and revolutionary procedure served as the start of worldwide knowledge about heart transplants. However, the number of heart transplants dropped drastically in 1970. This was because of growing number of related deaths. It was later recognized that the major problem was the body's natural tendency to reject the new tissues put into them.

Today, technological advances have made it possible for people to avoid having such conditions. Even for younger people, there are heart rate monitor apps for Android or other devices. Wearable blood pressure and heart rate monitor devices are also in the market to adjust to people’s fast-paced lives. On a daily basis, people can actually track their heart rates and blood pressures. People can even have the best blood pressure app for Android or other devices to help them live healthier.

    "I have been feeling a lot dizzy these past few days. I thought I have high blood pressure or maybe I'm suffering from low blood. So I installed this app to check for heart rate.
