“We are not in such a good situation now. His neurological condition in the last 24 hours has deteriorated a little. His GCS score, which was around 11, has come down again to around 9 and 10. Our neurological board, consisting of five doctors, has opined that the improvement happened due to immunoglobulin and steroids. After these medicines were stopped, the count came down,” Dr Arindam Kar, who’s main the medical workforce that’s treating Chatterjee, stated.
The actor underwent an MRI take a look at on Monday. “It showed no structural abnormalities. We have diagnosed that the Covid encephalopathy will stay for a while… in a worst case scenario, for an indefinite period. We will again give him immunoglobulin and steroid for the coming two days,” Dr Kar stated.
“The good part in respect to the previous days is that his organ functions are doing well. Most of time he is off oxygen support. He has no fever. His kidney, liver and coagulation functions are all okay. No new infection has been detected. Blood pressure is under control. The heart is good,” Dr Kar stated.
“The only problem we are dealing with now is encephalopathy. It means the brain (function) and consciousness (level) is sub-optimal. The improvement that we had seen did not stay. We are hopeful that with immunoglobulin and steroid he should bounce back towards improvement. The duration of encephalopathy has been a concern for all of us. We are not absolutely sure how long he would require care and how quickly he will return towards normalcy. We are considering some other options also,” stated Dr Kar.
