Sanders' treating physicians, Arturo Marchand Jr. and Arjun Gururaj, said in a statement:

After presenting to an outside facility with chest pain, Sen. Sanders was diagnosed with a myocardial infarction. He was immediately transferred to Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center. The Senator was stable upon arrival and taken immediately to the cardiac catheterization laboratory, at which time two stents were placed in a blocked coronary artery in a timely fashion. All other arteries were normal. His hospital course was uneventful with good expected progress. He was discharged with instructions to follow up with his personal physician.

While he was in the hospital, Sanders tweeted: "Thanks for all the well wishes. I'm feeling good. I'm fortunate to have good health care and great doctors and nurses helping me to recover. None of us know when a medical emergency might affect us. And no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. Medicare for All!"

 

...

Sanders is a part of the emerging far-left wing that has taken over the Democrat Party. Sanders, followed closely by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), outraised all of the other 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, bringing in $25.3 million during the third quarter while Warren brought in $24.6 million.
