Father Praises Device That Saved His Son’s Life

New parents will do anything for their child’s safety, however with so many expensive devices on the market, it’s almost impossible to know what is worth it and what isn’t.

For new parents Ryan Golinski and Kate Crawford, however – the Owlet Smart Sock has been a life-saving purchase and was most definitely “well worth the money.”

The smart sock tracks a baby’s heart rate as well as oxygen levels while they are asleep and notifies the parents or guardians if there are any abnormalities.

When their 4-week-old son’s Owlet started alerting them at 3 a.m., they thought “it was a false alarm because it said his heart rate was reading 286,” Ryan explained in a Facebook post.

However, after learning that this was by no means a false alarm, the first-time parents are eternally thankful for the device.

“We have spent the last 24+ hours at the hospital for something called SVT, and we caught it before any side effects,” Ryan explained. “So everything is going well now and his heart is still extremely healthy. If we didn’t catch it as early as we did with that sock, his heart wouldn’t have been able to handle it and we could be dealing with something a lot more serious.”

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a condition which causes an unusually fast heart rate of more than 100 beats per minute, but because their baby was wearing the Owlet in the middle of the night, Ryan and Kate were notified of their son’s accelerated heart rate immediately.

“I highly recommend new parents invest into this sock, it’s well worth the money,” Ryan closed his note.
