DHAKA: Veteran Bengali actress Suchitra Sen, whose condition had deteriorated slightly in the afternoon, is stable at the moment but still critical.
A doctor said Saturday, reports daijiworld.com.
Her oxygen level had dipped in the afternoon thereby necessitating intensive non-invasive oxygen support.
However, her doctors ruled out any invasive ventilation (via tracheotomy) therapy for now.
‘She is weak and needs oxygen support. She is not on life support,’ Abhirup Chakraborty, one of the team of experts monitoring her at the Belle Vue Clinic in Kolkata, told media.
Her cardiac health needs attention, he added.
Sen is on an oral prescribed diet which is being supplemented with peripheral nutrition through intravenous channel to fulfil her dietary requirements, the medical bulletin said Saturday.
‘The main issue is her oxygen saturation is fluctuating,’ said the doctor, adding that life-saving drugs are part of her prescribed regimen.
