Kolkata: Ailing yesteryear actress Suchitra Sen’s health deteriorated today even as she was put on ‘non-invasive ventilatory’ support following breathing difficulties, doctors said.
“Suchitra Sen’s breathing problem has increased leading to dipping of her oxygen saturation, needing non-invasive ventilatory support,” said a medical bulletin issued by Belle Vue Clinic, where she is admitted.
Non-invasive ventilation is given through a mask at irregular intervals.
“Her other vital parameters like heart rate and blood pressure remain stable,” doctors attending to her said, adding that she was having a light diet. Besides a cardiologist, the 82-year-old actress was also examined by two chest specialists. A five-member medical board at the hospital led by Dr Subrata Maitra was monitoring her health round-the-clock. Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited the hospital and met doctors and Sen’s actress-daughter Moon Moon.
