Your smartphone could be the first line of defense in warning you of a heart attack. New technology that has been developed could possibly give you hours of advanced notice of an impending heart attack.

The hours of advanced warning could be the difference between life and death and it's all because of your smartphone.


The new technology is in the form of a computer chip that is implanted under the skin. This chip is actually a small laboratory measuring blood chemicals and changes in protein that could signify an impending heart attack. The information from the chip is then transmitted via Bluetooth technology to your smartphone. Your smartphone will then alert you to the possible health crisis and provide valuable information for your doctor or other emergency medical professionals.
