His dependence on health support systems has increased even more.india Updated: May 03, 2006 17:12 IST
The condition of BJP leader Pramod Mahajan has deteriorated further and his dependence on health support systems has increased since Monday.
"Right now, the overall condition is quite critical. Lot of things are being taken care of by the doctors. In totality, the picture has deteriorated since yesterday," Dr Anupam Verma, director of the PD Hinduja Hospital, told reporters.
To a query whether the blood pressure of the 56-year-old leader was under control, he said, "Total scenario had slightly changed". The Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) has worsened, he said.
Mahajan was rushed to the Hospital on April 22 after his brother Pravin pumped three bullets into his chest from point blank range at his residence.
He has been critical since his admission and has been on ventilatory support since then.
Verma said that a team of doctors, led by DV Daver and Kapadia, were monitoring Mahajan "minute-to-minute".
