Suchitra Sen shows no signs of improvement
Ailing actress Suchitra Sen showed no signs of improvement and remained in a critical condition due to breathing difficulties and weakness, doctors attending on her said on Saturday.
The 82-year-old veteran actress, who is suffering from a respiratory tract infection, is not out of danger as her breathing difficulty remains, the doctors said. Her low food intake has made her weak, they said. A medical bulletin issued by Belle Vue Clinic, where she is admitted since December 23 said, “Her oxygen saturation has stabilised to some extent with wide variation. She tolerated non-invasive ventilation better than before.”
Ms.Sen is put on oral prescribed diet supplemented with peripheral parenteral nutrition and has been seen by Pawan Agarwal and Dhiman Ganguli besides a medical-team led by critical care specialist Subrata Maitra which is monitoring her condition 24×7.
Ms.Sen, who has kept herself away from the public eye for the last three decades, starred in memorable Hindi and Bengali films such as ‘Devdas’, ‘Aandhi’, ‘Saat Paake Bandha’, ’Agnipariksha’, ‘Saptopadi’ and ‘Deep Jele Jai’.
