Suchitra Sen’s condition stabilises

The condition of the legendary actor has improved since yesterday

The condition of iconic Bengali actor Suchitra Sen, who was put on non-invasive ventilator support after her condition deteriorated Friday night, has stabilised since then, said a medical bulletin Saturday.

Sen’s breathing problem had increased Friday leading to dipping of her oxygen saturation and thus necessitating the ventilator support. “However, her oxygen saturation is still fluctuating continuously necessitating intermittent non-invasive ventilation,” said the latest report.

She is receiving chest physiotherapy and her health condition has been reviewed by two chest specialists, said critical care specialist Subrata Maitra, part of the team of experts monitoring Sen at the Belle Vue Clinic here. “Her oxygen saturation level which had dipped Thursday is now going up”, said Abhirup Chakraborty, one of the doctors attending on her, adding, her vital parameters like heart rate and blood pressure are satisfactory.

Earlier in the day, Sen’s granddaughter Raima Sen took to Twitter to relay the news. “My grandma is better. Thank you for your prayers…Keep praying,” Raima tweeted Saturday.

The veteran actor is undergoing treatment for a chest infection at the hospital since Dec 23. Suchitra was taken to the critical care unit (CCU) after her condition deteriorated Dec 28 night.Subscribe to me on YouTube
