Suchitra condition most stable in 7 days

Suchitra Sen’s condition was stable on Monday and better than what it has been for a week, said doctors treating her at Belle Vue Clinic.

“Compared to the past seven days, she seems to be most stable today,” said Subrata Maitra, a critical care expert who is heading the team of doctors treating the screen icon.

According to the medical bulletin released by Belle Vue on Monday afternoon, her oxygen saturation level, though fluctuating, was “maintained at a reasonable level.”

Sen was on a light diet and had breakfast and lunch on her ITU bed.

Chest specialists Dhiman Ganguly and Pawan Agarwal visited her during the day and monitored the chest physiotherapy being conducted to clear the congestion.

Even though her blood pressure and heart rate were described as “satisfactory” by the bulletin, the medical team said Sen was being administered non-invasive ventilation.

The 82-year-old actress was admitted to Belle Vue on the night of December 23 with an acute chest infection and on 29, she was shifted from a private room to the ITU.
