Nick Cordero underwent a procedure to obtain a temporary pacemaker following what was a battle of several weeks amid complications from the coronavirus.
Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots shared an update with her Instagram followers on Friday afternoon.
“So we just got a call from the doctors about Nick and it looks like he had an irregular heartbeat last night that scared them enough to want to make a temporary pacemaker in Nick’s heart,” said explained Kloots.

Kloots pointed out that the Broadway star’s heart was “working fine,” but doctors were concerned about some “troughs” in his heart rate. The pacemaker was placed so that doctors “would not have to worry about the drop in his heart rate” if his body were to be moved for other procedures in the future, she said.
An hour after his announcement, Kloots confirmed that the proceedings had gone well and Cordero was back in his room at 3 p.m., just in time for the wife’s daily social media called #WakeUpNick, which implied that fans send uplifting videos with the hashtag.

The temporary pacemaker procedure was implemented just days after the amputation of Cordero’s right leg. He had previously been “heavily sedated” for 13 days, which could contribute to his current condition, his wife said earlier in the week.
Cordero went into intensive care last month and has repeatedly tested negative for the coronavirus, but Kloots said doctors were convinced it was the root of his problems. The actor received two negative test results for the coronavirus this week again, Kloots said Friday, which led doctors to believe the new coronavirus is officially out of his system.
