Dr. Gupta this weekend

By Tim Langmaid
CNN Medical Managing Editor

This weekend be sure to tune in for two reports from CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

At 8:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday watch "House Call." Gupta will examine the medical records of 71-year-old Sen. John McCain. If elected, McCain would be the oldest elected president in U.S. history by Inauguration Day in 2009. Also, "House Call" will look at re-growing body parts – it's becoming reality at a military hospital in Texas. Plus, on the road and looking for food, find out the best and worst choices at your favorite roadside fast-food joints.

Then at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET Saturday and Sunday, watch "The First Patient – Health and the Presidency." This CNN Special Investigations Unit hour reported by Gupta explores the health demands of being commander in chief – and the challenges facing presidential doctors. See how the aging process may accelerate for those serving in the Oval Office. Learn about the health care the president receives day to day and in a worst-case scenario. And see how the nation and the world respond when the American president is sick or injured.

    Please let us know whether Senator McCain is using any narcotics for pain control from the multiple fractures he had in the past

    I am just worried that this may affect his ability to make decisions

    I am glad you are addressing mental status issues. From observation of any neuropsychologist or neurologist, it was evident that Ronald Reagan had developed a Cognitive Disorder and beginning stages of Alzheimer's before he ever left office. This was covered up/compensated for by others. I am very concerned about an elderly statesman taking office at age 72 (regardless of which party s/he belongs to). There should be yearly assessments. There should be some kind of mental standard put in place. Test them when they enter office and look to see if their decline is greater than expected at their age. You showed photos of how they aged across their years in the Whitehouse. I strongly suspect that their MRI's and their mental status exams would show significant decrements in some cases such as Reagan.

    It never ceases to amaze me, how liberals still feel the need to bring down the presidency of Ronald Reagan. There has never been any proof that he showed any signs of Alzheimer's disease during his presidency. I would like to know the political affiliation of the doctor who diagnosed him from a televised debate. Not very scientific. And bouncing your head up and down like a "bobble-head doll" in response to your own question, does not make it so, Dr. Gupta. That segment of the show was beneath you. I am disappointed.

    I watched your program "First Patient" last night. It was reported that
    Franklin D Roosevelt passed away a month after his 4th inaugration.
    However, that is not true he died on April 12, 1945.

    I did enjoy the program very much.

    With all due respect, if McCain is taking pain relief from bone pain it would probably be NSAIDs, not opiads, which do not impair decision making. He would have to probably also have to guard with stomach preparation to guard against ulcers as a precaution. Opiads are usually used for more serious pain such as cancer or post-surgical pain.

    Those are yours alright! . We at least need to get these people stealing images to start blogging! They probably just did a image search and grabbed them. They look good though!
