Yes, a video has surfaced on Instagram, in which an Apple Watch has been tied on the tongue of a lion and with its help the heartbeat of the lion is being measured. This is a video shared by a veterinarian. Let's know about it.

Apple Watch is measuring the heart rate of a lion

Australian wildlife veterinarian Dr Chloe Buting, known online as @Jungle_doctor, shared a video on Instagram of an Apple Watch being used on a lion.

The video shows a sedated lion with an Apple Watch on its tongue. According to Dr Buting, this 'off-label' use highlights the potential of technology in animal protection. The caption of the post reads: @apple watch can measure a lion's heart rate when strapped to its tongue.

Who used the technique for the first time?

  • Let us tell you that this simple method is inspired by Dr. Fabiola Quesada, a leading wildlife veterinarian. Dr. Quesada had uncovered this technique by using an Apple Watch to measure the heart rate of an elephant through its ear.
  • This approach gives a safe and efficient solution to the challenge of monitoring vital signs in large, wild animals.
  • Veterinarians secure the Apple Watch on the tongue of the unconscious lion, making real-time heart rate monitoring possible during medical procedures.
  • This innovation ensures efficient tracking of vital signs, ultimately leading to better animal care.
  • How does the Apple Watch work

    • The Apple Watch uses a technique called photoplethysmography to track heart rate. It takes advantage of the fact that blood absorbs green light but reflects red light.
    • It uses a green LED light paired with a light-sensitive photodiode in the watch. As the heart pumps, blood flow in the wrist fluctuates.
    • The watch detects these changes by flashing the LED hundreds of times per second and measuring the amount of green light absorbed. This calculates the heart rate.
    • This creative use of technology in animal care shows the potential for collaboration between unrelated fields. By embracing innovation, veterinarians are ensuring a healthier future for our wildlife.
