Mukherjee still in a deep coma, but is stable: Doctors

Mukherjee is under intensive care and is being treated

New Delhi: Former President Pranab Mukherjee continues to be in a deep coma but is haemodynamically stable, the Army’s Research and Referral Hospital said on Friday.

A patient is haemodynamically stable when the blood circulation parameters – blood pressure, heart and pulse rate, are stable and normal, say doctors.

According to doctors treating the 84-year-old Mukherjee, he is under intensive care and is being treated for a lung infection and renal dysfunction.

The former president was admitted to the hospital in Delhi Cantonment on August 10, where he was operated upon for the removal of a clot in the brain.

He had also tested positive for COVID-19 at the time of his admission. He later developed a lung infection and kidney dysfunction.

“Shri Pranab Mukherjee is under intensive care and is being treated for a lung infection and renal dysfunction. He continues to be in a deep coma and on ventilator support. He is haemodynamically stable,” the hospital said in a statement.

Mukherjee was the 13th President of India from 2012 to 2017.
