Dasmunsi stable, shifted to Apollo hospital

Last updated on: October 20, 2008 11:58 IST

Information and Broadcasting Minister Priyaranjan Dasmunsi, who was admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences following a severe heart attack, was on Monday shifted to the corporate Apollo hospital for further treatment of his neurological condition.

"He has been shifted at 10.30 am. His family wanted to shift him for further treatment of his neurological condition. His condition is stable and he needs more neurological care," AIIMS Medical Superintendent Dr D K Sharma said.

The condition of 62-year-old Dasmunsi, who has been under treatment at AIIMS for the past eight days, "continues to remain the same. He is stable but still unconscious," he said.

American neurologist Den Henley, who is in Delhi to examine Dasmunsi, had earlier an informal discussion about the minister's health with the multi-discipline team of doctors treating him.

"Dr Henley is a neurologist from Johns Hopkins University and he has come to look into the case of Dasmunsi on the recommendation of his family doctor," P P Singh, APS to the ailing minister, said.

The 62-year old minister was admitted to AIIMS following complete left ventricular failure on October 13.
