Jyoti Basu still critical

“He is marginally better; no major developments have been found in his condition so far,” the medical bulletin said. However, the fact that he has not been showing any positive indication of improvement is not a good sign either. “It is not a good sign.

We expected a bit more improvement, but there has been no change in Basu’s health. A patient staying in ICU without any improvement is a bad sign,” medical board member Dr Susrut Bandyopadhyay said.

According to hospital sources, Basu’s blood pressure has been normal and he has been responding to broad spectrum antibiotics. The oedema,  accumulation of fluid, in Basu’s brain has been arrested, doctors said, adding that he has been able to take in 40 per cent of the supplied oxygen.

Meanwhile, superstar Shah Rukh Khan said: “We need people like Basu to advise and guide us.” Asked if he would visit Basu at the hospital, Khan said he thought of doing so, but changed the plans at the last moment lest “it disturbs his family.”
