Argentine President Back to Work after Cardiac Problem

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri said on Monday in Buenos Aires that he is “doing fine” as he resumed his agenda after suffering from cardiac arrhythmia last Friday.

“Thanks to all you Argentines who have been sending me messages since last Friday afternoon until today. They’re still coming in. Here I am, I’m doing fine. So we can continue working together to achieve that Argentina we dream of,” the president said during an event at a neighborhood club in the Argentine capital.

Last Friday afternoon, Macri underwent a physical exam at a medical center while suffering a bout of malaise that was subsequently diagnosed as common cardiac arrhythmia, which was then reversed.

“This has no consequences. We estimate he will be on the medication for three or four weeks and we’ll keep checking him with routine exams like electrocardiograms” once a week, the director of the Presidential Medical Unit, Dr. Simon Salzberg, said in a statement on Continental radio.

The doctor noted that “the logical thing would be for it never to happen again,” though in medicine “never” means maybe or maybe not, and added that while the president should steer clear of contact sports, he can continue working without restrictions and will be able to live a “totally normal” life.
