Vajpayee responding to treatment, say doctors

February 08, 2009 22:09 IST

The condition of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who is admitted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences with chest infection, is stable and he is responding to the treatment, doctors attending him said on Sunday.
"His condition is stable. He is still on the ventilator but he is responding to the treatment," Dr Sampath Kumar, head of Cardiac Thoracic Vascular Sciences Department of AIIMS, told PTI.
Scotching rumours about the health of the 84-year-old former Prime Minister, Kumar said "his condition has not deteriorated. He has no fever". He is making progress". Kumar said functioning of his liver and kidney and his blood pressure are normal.
Asked about the former Prime Minister's respiratory track infection, Kumar said doctors have given him antibiotics and they would take two to three days to have their full effect. "We will have to wait for a few more days for his full recovery," he said.
