JULY 31, 2018

Chennai: Ailing DMK chief M Karunanidhi’s vital signs have gradually normalized but he will continue to remain hospitalized due to age-related overall decline in his general health, liver and blood parameters, the Chennai hospital, where the former Tamil Nadu chief minister is under treatment, said in a statement on Tuesday evening.

In a medical bulletin, the hospital said the conditions which led to his admission last week had been normalized.

“…an extended period of hospitalization will be necessary due to age related overall decline in his general health, altered liver function and haematological parameters,” Aravindan Selvaraj, executive director of Chennai’s Kauvery hospital said in a comprehensive statement.

He was “resuscitated and stabilized” in intensive care and managed by a team of doctors and nurses.

The hospital said there “was a setback on his clinical condition” on Sunday due to difficulty in breathing but he “responded well to medical management” and his vital signs normalized.
