    Good morning Dr. Kopecky

    Just wondering if you would be mentioning the capnograph associated with Dr. White in your broadcast. I am Howard Snitzer’s significant other and am so thankful for Mayo Clinic. Howard is six-weeks out from his quad bypass and doing excellent in his cardiac rehab, 40 minutes of cardio, weights, eating healthy.

    One thing I would hope you would mention is how significant damage SMOKING does to someone’s heart. Howard has not had a cigarette since his heart attack in January. Big accomplishment!

    Wishing the best to everyone at Mayo.

      I’m not sure if they were able to address the smoking question on the program this morning, but we are glad to heard that Howard continues to do well. His is truly and amazing story.
