Doctors attending on the Satya Sai Baba on Saturday said that the seer continues to remain in a ‘very critical’ state of health with his vital organs showing ‘minimal’ response to the treatment being given to him.
Director of Medical Education Dr T Ravi Raju told media persons here that the spiritual leader’s heart is very weak and his kidneys are not functioning. Dr Raju added that Satya Sai Baba’s blood pressure is being maintained at normal level through medication while his liver function is very poor.
“It is difficult for us to accurately assess his level of consciousness since he is under sedation continuously. Apart from this, his intestines too are not functioning properly. He is being fed intravenously,” the state Medical Education Director said.
Dr Raju said that the godman’s health is being monitored round-the-clock by a panel of doctors at the Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences where he was admitted with respiration and heart-related problems on March 28.
Meanwhile, Major Industries Minister J Geetha Reddy, who is herself a medical graduate, said that the state government has also held a coordination meeting with the SSSIHMS doctors, members of the Satya Sai Trust and the district administration to assess the seer’s health.
Dr Geetha Reddy also assured the devotees of the government’s assistance on every suggestion by the panel of doctors attending on the seer.
Members of the Satya Sai Trust are expected to hold a press conference later on Saturday evening regarding the media reports of an intense behind-the-scenes struggle over the vast wealth of the godman.
