TARUN GOGOI’S HEALTH DETERIORATES AT GMCH, MAY NEED DIALYSIS

GUWAHATI: Former Assam chief minister and senior Congress leader Tarun Gogoi’s health has further deteriorated on Friday. Gogoi is admitted at Gauhati Medical College and Hospital. He is kept in the Intensive Care Unit and is under non invasive ventilation (NIV).

Medication has been given to keep his blood pressure under control. Tarun Gogoi’s health status is being shared with doctors of AIIMS and he is under constant observation.

“His saturation came down and he is on non invasive ventilation. He is maintaining a saturation of about 96 to 97 per cent. The worrying part is his urine flow has lessened. We have given a urine challenge test if we don’t succeed we will have to go for a dialysis. Otherwise, he is stable, but drowsy and irritable. He cannot talk as he is in NIV. We are in touch with doctors from AIIMS who had earlier visited him. They are in the same opinion that whatever we are doing has to continue. There is no change in the treatment protocol,” said Dr. Abhijit Sarma, Superintendent, In-charge, GMCH.
