The attending physician at the U.S. Capitol, Brian Monahan in his own note on Monday said the Senator was in good health. “You are in good health currently and you have been engaging vigorously in the rigors of your campaign, travel, and other scheduled activities without any limitation.” He also said “Your heart muscle strength has improved, the heart chamber sizes, wall thickness, estimated pressures, and heart valves are normal. Several 24-hour recordings of your heart electrical activity indicated no significant heart rhythm abnormality.”
Reviewing Senator Sanders’ Health Information, Dr. Mary Ann McLaughlin, director of cardiovascular health and wellness at the Mount Sinai Heart Center has added that the Senator’s heart attack occurred in an artery often called the “widow-maker,” and the fact that he received prompt treatment to reopen that blood vessel helps explain how well he’s doing.
