Sanjay Gupta: Hillary Clinton Should See A Doctor For Tests Before Flying To California Tomorrow

|

Update: Clinton since cancelled her campaign events on the West Coast.

Speaking to CNN's Wolf Blitzer, CNN medical analyst Sanjay Gupta suggested that before heading off for fundraisers on the West Coast tomorrow, Hillary Clinton should visit a doctor for some "routine exams," given the unusual fall she had leaving the 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday.

WOLF BLITZER, CNN: She's supposed to fly out to California tomorrow. Out of an abundance of caution, if you were physician would you tell her maybe do some medical exams before you do that? Would you check her in? Or at least have a physician take a closer look? What would you do?

SANJAY GUPTA, CNN: Yes, I think I would. And this has less to do with the fact she's Hillary Clinton or a candidate for president, but if you hear of anybody who is having this episode a little that is a little bit unusual, maybe not surprising given again the heat of the day, and the medications, but I think as you say out of an abundance of caution, I'd probably want to make sure that her blood pressure, do a routine EKG, check some basic lab values and that's not, you know, in medicine you have your strong suspicions, and I think again most common conclusion is what we've been talking about -- but out of an abundance of caution and interest in thoroughness you might check those other things.

If they check out fine they'd have no problem traveling.

If I were Dr. Bardak, or the other doctors caring for her, we should probably get routine tests, given what had happened today.
